As I sit here and study for a bit, I had a thing come to mind to write about.
It is on judgement and feeling condemned by others.
The question that arose was do you really feel judged or are you condemning yourself and then perceiving judgement?
Many people are offended these days as I am sure it will as they have been in past times but nothing like now. People rather hear lies then the truth.
Hey, if it suits their comfort great. We are here to lift our brother and sisters up in Christ and for the world as well.
I learned that being honest with someone no matter the cost if it is something that will benefit and encourage them or at least let them evaluate themselves, then it’s worth it and a must.
I have seen people get very offended or make an excuse or say “don’t cast stones” well for some we made a mistake and we spot the patterns of others behavior and to not try and correct and allow a person to be harmed by choices that could be prevented is not being a good friend at all.
If it is something that you know is the truth and you are receiving confirmation because most of us know right from wrong and for the world you do too. “Unless your conscious is seared.”
Then if you feel judgement it is a perception of your own condemnation and that is why God’s word is clear because He does not want us to be condemned at all.
I would do a heart check and ask God to reveal the thing/s inside of you that are making you feel this way.
Too many times we blame others for what we feel, trust me no one has that much power to make you feel any certain way! That is by choice and ignorance that you/we choose to listen and let it take root.
“Hard!!! Yes, very!! To not let what others say penetrate deep inside of your spirit man”
I will be the first to raise my hand because I can’t write about what I don’t know or went through, going through or am in now.
To me that would be judgement how can one properly lead, guide or give advice on something that don’t even know.
I once was told this or heard it I can’t remember which, but it went like this:
Do you think that you are that special that everyone would be so focused on you or that anyone would have the power to make you feel any certain way.
I have to be honest I did not like that statement I thought, “wow that’s rude” however it is not as I have learned throughout the years.
That would be living by our emotions and trust me unless your a NarC/Jezebel, it’s something that can only be done by the grace of God.
It takes a lot of trials, stretching and strengthening and the most important! Trust in God to get through living off emotions.
I pray everyday and change when I notice myself doing it.
