Tuesday

You find God’s favor by deciding to please God even when you endure hardships because of unjust suffering. For what merit is it to endure mistreatment for wrongdoing?

Yet if you are mistreated when you do what is right, and you faithfully endure it, this is commendable before God. In fact, you were called to live this way, because Christ also suffered in your place, leaving you his example for you to follow. (1 Pet 2:19)

OK … hands in the air, this one is probably just for me! I genuinely am struggling to think of a time that I’ve successfully managed to just bite my lip and not retaliate – oh, yes I’ve managed to keep a straight face, but in my heart (where GOD sees), I’ve been churning like a volcano and in my head I’ve been planning my retort!

Let’s be fair, we all want an “eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth…” (unless it’s ‘us’ who are in the wrong)!

Lord Jesus, please peel away my ‘thick skin’ and take away my repertoire of horrible ‘come back’ lines. Help me to see that YOU alone are my defender and protector, my source and resource. And to be able to do as you say: “… love your enemies and do something wonderful for them in return for their hatred. When someone curses you, bless that person in return. When you are mistreated and harassed by others, accept it as your mission to pray for them.” (‭‭Luke‬ ‭6:27) ❤️

If we boast that we have no sin, we’re only fooling ourselves and are strangers to the truth. But if we freely admit our sins when his light uncovers them, he will be faithful to forgive us every time
