Every action, reaction, performance, behavior etc are all as a result of laws. The reality is, the behavior of anyone or anything gives clear evidence of the laws that's influencing them.
Firstly, what are laws? Well, laws are written or verbal commands, rules or principles set by some form of authority that dictates or influences a certain course of action or behavior of a person place or thing.
For example the law of gravity states that whatever goes up must come down; the law of reciprocal dictates that whatever goes around comes right back around. Now, whenever we participate or activate these laws, be it knowing or unknowingly to us, then whatever the end result of that particular law dictates, we automatically become participants of it.
Meaning, if you decide right now to jump up, the law of gravity that is already keeping you in place, will automatically force you back in position. So, as you can see once a law is activated, our opinions, feelings and what we think can not change what the law was designed and intended to do.
I want to minister specifically to someone this morning. You are just sick and tired of doing good for others or just simply being a door mat for others, especially family members, friend and those that you hold very dear to you, only to discover and at the end of the day your good is challenged by ungratefulness, complaints and murmuring by those you go out of your way to assist.
My friend, read very carefully what I am about to say to you next because it is God speaking directly to your spirit in an effort to re-new your mind in this very important area of your life.
THE PEOPLE THAT YOU ARE ASSISTING AND DOING GOOD FOR, ARE NOT THE ONES CHALLENGING YOU, INSTEAD YOU ARE BEING CHALLENGED BY THE LAW CONCERNING THIS MATTER THAT REQUIRED HUMAN ACTIVATION AND PARTICIPATION TO PRODUCE THE RESULTS YOU ARE CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING!
Scripture says the following concerning this, “I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me” Romans 7:21. In other word my friend, the law was activated that every moment you decided to do that which was good. As a result evil now has the legal right according to the law, to challenge the good that you are about to do or have done. It is the same as attempting to read the bible, because it’s a good thing, what usually happens? You become sleepy, irate, bored or decide to do something else. Again, you are being challenged by a law! Not people, an environment or a thing.
Therefore, in order to challenge this law when doing good, you need a greater law, and the law that supersedes this law states the following, “Death and life is in the power of the tongue and they that love it (the death or life that is spoken) shall eat the fruit of their words (or become participants of what they have said)” Proverbs 18:21.
So, my words of wisdom to you this morning, whenever you set out to do good, begin your counter attack against the evil that will come by speaking life over the person, place or thing you’re about to execute that good upon. Say out loud or to yourself, “Lord as I am about to bless “so and so” with this money or whatever, create in them a grateful heart and an appreciative spirit, remove all negativity, complaining and murmuring from their spirit and mind and enable them to do likewise for others in JESUS NAME. AMEN!
AS A REMINDER, YOU ARE BEING CHALLENGED BY LAWS, NOT PEOPLE!
