Fasting From Negative Choices
Today’s Fast: Today We Are Fasting from the choice to… Be Spiteful
Have you ever been tempted to give someone a taste of their own medicine? I know that I have.
However, the thing about giving a toxic person a dose of their venom, is that in order to give another person the venom that they spewed out to you, you have to receive it and then hold on to it, because you cannot dose out a taste of negative medicine unless you are the one holding onto the spoon. So, in essence when we behave spitefully otherwise known as repaying evil for evil, we are actually holding on to the spoon of negativity. And then, we wonder why we’re so bitter, resentful and unhappy.
Whenever you’re tempted to repay evil for evil, do the opposite by abstaining from the choice to be spiteful. With God’s help, you can choose life in every situation where you might be inclined to choose spite and vindictiveness over peace, maturity and compassion. When you let go and let God, you can focus on the things that matter most to you rather than getting caught up in pettiness or other people’s agendas that have nothing to do with your purpose or your priorities.
Never forget that spitefulness does nothing to serve you well and it will make an already bad situation much worse. Today know that you can choose the path of peace as far as it depends on you.
Today Is A New Day
It’s new because the sun has risen this morning.
It’s new because you have arisen to meet it.
And the risen version of you has the power and capacity to rise to the occasion and handle your business for today.
Remind Yourself: …“Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, says the Lord.” (Romans 12: 19)
PRAYER: You can pray the scripture from today’s message or you can pray about anything that’s on your heart.
