What a grand journey I’m on, and I know you are having an adventure too. This morning while Paul and I were praying and talking, and yes, drinking coffee (duh) we started talking about all the negativity and judgments that are showing up all over the body of Christ. We are pretty grieved about this, as I’m sure many of you are.
I believe what we need to realize is, this is a spirit that is infiltrating the prevailing atmosphere and many are falling into its deception. Every time we jump in and voice our opinions or even defend our own experiences we are fueling this thing, we are giving it more power to deceive.
The division between us and them mentality and outright attacks really need to stop. When we enter into these things we have chosen to be offended and feel we have to justify our stance when we really don’t!
For me, the easiest thing to do is keep walking (scrolling) and like Bill Johnson has said many times, have the attitude of, “I don’t have a dog in this fight!” That is how you keep walking. You realize that your stand and your belief are your own. No one else has had your adventure with God – no one! Why should we even try to defend something like that?
Maybe we could even pray for that spirit that is so prevalent in this to fall. (Maybe) Or we could pray that the person who is “attacking” could have an encounter with Jesus and quit persecuting His kids. I don’t know, maybe.
Walking and praying – it’s what I will be doing today as I continue on this grand adventure that is mine.
Enjoy your adventure, feed your adventure.
