My brethren, all joy the past for various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith, once confirmed, develops perseverance. Perseverance must complete action, that ye may be perfect and entire, lacking in nothing. James 1:2,3,4.
May the Lord have mercy on those who hate us. when the Lord puts it, nobody can take, for it was he who placed it. And he who does the will of God, not him. And those who say they are not of God and are called Pharisees. Only has the appearance of holiness, but deep down is much worse than an unbeliever. It is easy to see that kind within the Church. Flee from them!
He who has the Holy Spirit, that you have saves for what has is her greatest treasure. But the anointing that God gave you, nobody can take away. David was anointed by God and persecuted by Saul. Saul, while obeying the Lord, dwelt in him the Spirit of the Lord. When Saul disobeyed the Lord's Spirit came out and entered the spirit of envy and hatred within him. Saul wanted to kill David and David had nothing against Saul. But why the hatred of Saul against David? Because David was obedient to God's Voice. And this obedience is furious that left Saul. Both he not only wanted to see David dead, but to all those who were on the side of David.
The evil spirit that was in Saul dominated his mind. He was thirsty for revenge against David and who was on his side. Today, unfortunately, those who obey God's Voice is pursued, not only inside, but within the Church. If you are going through the same that David now, wait on the Lord, be sure to target the Lord Jesus. Keep obeying God's Voice, keep persevering. You are called by God to be a living witness that He is Lord and never changed. When God calls, He even trains, matures and gives you new life so that others may be won to the Lord.
Saul was faithful to some extent. Halfway there, he was lost, leaving the spiritual milk and doing everything in anxiety and arm strength. He eventually lost what was most precious: The Spirit of the Lord. Many want to, but because few can call their own benefit and to God is not so. God is fair, and just as it did justice to David hatred of Saul, he does justice to all of us today. No use, with the anointed one, nobody can interfere. No one takes, and who tries to humiliate, He is our righteous judge to judge those who hate us.
If you asked the Lord to make a difference, there's your answer. God is beginning to work in his life so that this difference is noticed by everyone and so many souls will be won to the Lord Jesus. Y'know! It is written ... and a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense. These are they who stumble at the word, being disobedient, to which also they were appointed. 1 Peter 2:8. who stumbles on the word of God is disobedient.
Not discouraged, the downtrodden, will be exalted. Pray for those who exalt themselves, pride entered the hearts and thoughts are no longer those of the Lord.
Stay strong with God.
