'…it is important that we learn how to carry His power and authority. If we believers become combative instead of honorably confronting, we will reduce our influence to the small pond if the church and render ourselves to powerless in the ocean of humanity. We are to carry God's authority into the lives of people and nations through invitation, not through intrusion or invasion. Although we are called to be combative when dealing with the powers of darkness, we are to be honorably confronting with people, demonstrating the benefits and rewards of a superior Kingdom.'
Developing a Supernatural Lifestyle
I love the way this is worded! We are called to be combative when dealing with the powers of darkness and we are to be honorably confronting with people! So true. Sometimes I face situations forgetting the humanity viewpoint. Like- duh, they are people. One thing that’s been big for me lately is a standard that Starbucks practices- that being: always assume the customers have the best intentions. So for me it has been getting in the mindset that they (people around me) are not out to get me and they have my best interest in mind. Trusting the Lord takes care of me and my every circumstance, whether that is true of the person or not. Knowing that my battle is not of flesh and blood but of principalities and powers of darkness. -great reminder this morning a we are here to face another day. (:
