That person who is causing you trouble or grief is not your enemy. The enemy is the enemy.
Stand strong in love. But not in your own strength…in God’s. Ask the Lord to love that person (or persons) through you. Pray for the other person’s health, welfare and spiritual walk. Satan lives to stir up strife and division among people, especially brothers and sisters in Christ. The only way he succeeds is if we give into the anger.
Let love rule. It is the only way to overcome the enemy of your soul.
Blessings today & everyday.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 New International Version (NIV)
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails.
