God gives confidence
Not self confidence but confidence because you are loved and accepted in the beloved.
I don’t speak because I am a master over offence
Okay by the grace of God, I am a master over offence
I walk in love because the love of God has been shed abroad in my heart by the Holy Ghost.
I learn about offence from the Syrophoenician woman; she is admirable.
She is my hero. She is the one I look at and line. She is the one I think of when I decide to let an offence go.
Offence is the enemy of my destiny so I will not nurse her in my reins when my reins were created to birth the
plan of God for my life.
I guard my heart jealously so much you will probably see me and describe me as that selfish melancholy
I have learned that my heart is so important
I have known the pain of being frozen and unable to be useful to God because my chest and my insides are frozen
A place that is created to nurse my dreams is ineffective because the environment is wrong, God is giving me all the
right things but because my garden is full of weeds of offence, I can’t receive even His love talk less of His destiny for me
Never tell yourself that you can’t forgive, you are so not ordinary
God created you right, teach yourself by the help of the Holy Spirit how to allow the love of God saturate your heart and
absorb all the hurts, anger, fears, that would crystallize in your heart and make you ineffective.
Guard your heart
Fill it with God’s love
Understand your priorities
Take your place daily as a daughter of the King
Put your trust in the almighty God
If anyone offends you, even if it is 490 times, that means that you will pray 490 times that day
You will pray to God about the hurt and ask Him to handle it
Refuse to overload your heart, leave it open for God all the time
Don’t fill it with burdens, hurts, that endless list of the people you will revenge against
recognize who God has made you
You are created to live above the forces of darkness, no matter how scary they seem, they are powerless
and mere shadows created to deceive you
You are created to live above the principles of this life
The things that stop others, scare others, limit others, slow others down; will work for your good
You are a child of the son, a son brought up and taught to obey the voice of God
His love for you is unending, enduring, legit; for no good reason or bad reason
God loves you
Give Him His place; be a child to Him but more than that, accept the help of the Holy Ghost daily
He is yours
You are His
He desires to help you daily
God gave me the courage to write this after I read “Voice of the Covenant” by Jesse Duplantis. He said living in offence is like God giving you Lekki to live in and then you find your way to Ajegunle and stay there. Error! I pray this sets someone free from carrying offences and giving it the place you should give God.
The Syrophoenician refused to be offended and she got the best of God, grow up spiritually, leave offences behind, cry if you have to, pray if you have to but drop offences at the altar of God and move forward.
