Fasting From Negative People
Today’s Fast: Today We Are Fasting from people who are …Quarrelsome and Stir Up Strife
Proverbs 20: 3 says …“Avoiding a fight is a mark of honor; only fools insist on quarreling.”
When we can avoid a fight, it is a mark of honor because we are displaying Godly wisdom, maturity and foresight.
There’s a song by country singer Kenny Rogers called, “The Coward of The County,” and in this song there’s a line that goes “Walk away from trouble if you can.” The reason it’s so important to walk away from trouble is because all it takes is a few seconds for an argument to spin out of control and a fight to lead to an unanticipated murder. There are a lot of people in jail for murder today that never planned on murdering the person who they were fighting with …the situation just escalated to the point of no return.
Be mindful of keeping company with people who are quarrelsome and stir up strife because they can drag you into situations that have nothing to do with you and that come with consequences that you may not be prepared to deal with.
Today, take a step back and assess your relationships with people who are quarrelsome and stir up strife, so that you can evaluate whether or not you should come out from among them. *****And if you are in a position where you are not yet able to come out from among them physically, then come out from among them spiritually and psychologically by creating some emotional distance and making sure you put on the whole armor of God before dealing with them.
If you know that you can be unnecessary quarrelsome in any way, ask God to search your heart and renew a right spirit in 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: … “Avoiding a fight is a mark of honor; only fools insist on quarreling.” (Proverbs 20: 3)
PRAYER: You can pray the scripture from today’s message or you can pray about anything that’s on your heart.
