“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”
Let me focus on the realization that God is in control of all things. Let me be in submission to the authority you have set in place. My role as a christian is to follow the path of Love not judgment and hate. As I walk daily let me be focused upon your precepts and let your holy spirit guide me and walk in your will. I will leave the battles to your authority and follow the Godly leaders you have set in place.
I will focus upon these scriptures today:
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them.
Let love always be my focus point.
Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, and let not your heart be glad when he stumbles,
Let me not harbor hate and bitterness against my enemies.
For wicked and deceitful mouths are opened against me, speaking against me with lying tongues. They encircle me with words of hate, and attack me without cause. In return for my love they accuse me, but I give myself to prayer. So they reward me evil for good, and hatred for my love.
May I always pray in any situation no matter how unpleasant it my be.
To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.”
If I let God take control of all my life even the battles with evilness, I will have the ultimate victory.
Dear Father, Let me focus upon your words of wisdom today through these scriptures and as I enter your house of worship today let me clear my mind from any worries and judgments and focus upon worshiping your holy name and fellowship with my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus.
