The Abuse Continues
I recently wrote about a form of abuse and want to give some insight into the confirmation given by the Holy Spirit. Acknowledging His timeliness. Reading from 1 Samuel 8: 1-22.
I learned on the previous day that no exceptions are being made. The benefits in my contract are being gutted.
Consequently, I spoke with another nurse. Who (without me even asking) disclosed how much she is receiving. Before and after the modifications to her contract.
Feeling frustrated, disappointed, and very angry, I prayed to the LORD to help me healthily process this situation and move on.
Needless to say, the Spirit was letting me know that what He is revealing is truth. It is up to me to act accordingly. Albeit upset while driving home, I expressed my anger and frustration to the LORD.
Differing Standards and Integrity
Moreover, I want to clarify that I am not here to judge. Nevertheless, I am allowed to see how some, if not many, are in the same position as I am. Who feel comfortable doing the bare minimum. Giving with all my being, I am ordained for this. I do this unto God.
Notwithstanding, there is nothing new under the sun. The world protects its own.
There are several messages in this. God reveals secrets to His anointed. Even so, everything that transpires is allowed. God shines His light into the situation that the devil attempts to use to break you down. It is impossible to walk through this thing in darkness. Especially for those who are upright and display moral courage.
The Nature of Man
The fear of man can ensnare your soul. We are disappointed because we expect the same treatment that we mete out. Thus, we are only human. When people show you who they are, it is up to you to use discretion and discernment moving forward. Therefore, look to God. He will never let you down.
The LORD was specific in letting the Israelites know that it is He who saved them. From oppression and their enemies. Yet they wanted a king to reign over them. A mere man. Thereby, rejoicing as God granted their request.
God is sovereign. And we must trust Him. Through it all, He nurtures and allows us to see how He is working. When blinded by emotions, it is easy to ignore His grace.
As I write this, I feel His presence. His peace. His protection. And His love. I am choosing to accept His constancy and immovability over man’s instability.
Furthermore, a double-minded man is unstable in all his ways. Even when this insecurity comes from within. Glory to God!!!
However, I must mention that this is how Cain killed his brother. The LORD gave him a solution to the emotional turmoil that was building within him. Yet Cain chose to ignore it.
Always coming from a place of love and in truth!!!
