Do you have people in your life that just drive you crazy. People that never seem to grow Spiritually? People that never seem to grow in any way? Well, I think we all have them but what do you do with them? For me, I know God has placed some of those folks in my life to mentor, to come along side to help them grow in every way. I know some of these people are placed as test from God, to see how I will react, how I will respond when being pushed to my limit. I also know some are placed by the enemy to distract, attack and discourage me. So how do you know when they are from God and when are they from the enemy? Well, first I pray about the person. Because I don't always know, I know I need to pray for discernment. I need to check if this person's actions are trying to destroy me, the ministry God has given me, my witness and so forth. I then need to extend grace as I know I have been that person to others through the years. Bottom line, we all need the Lord whether we have accepted Christ and need growth or salvation to begin with.
Thank you Lord that you continue to help me see through the distraction of our sin to see what YOU see in people...hope.
