Summary: Keep right attitudes and God will open doors that no man can shut---and will shut doors that man opened---keeping you on the right path but you must trust Him and listen to His direction! God has a promotion in store and he sends along a test… If we get
All of us we will have those times
Talking about us, make us look bad, blowing things out of proportions
Not helping but trying to drag us down
Based on jelousy and a competitive spirit
You have what they want and instead of waiting and believeing God for something they lash out at those who have
They release it by talking…criticism and
the More successful or anointe you are the more criticism you will get…and lies will be made
Not everyone will celebrate your victories with you….not singing the praises
Don’t take personally – it really is not you but it is something on the inside of them that will keep them from rising higher and stifle their spiritual growth…not just sinners do this…but believers as well
Learn to celebrate for others and with others
Keep right attitudes and God will open doors that no man can shut---and will shut doors that man opened---keeping you on the right path but you must trust Him and listen to His direction!
God has a promotion in store and he sends along a test…
If we get jealous get critical---keep us right where we are...if you want to move with God you must leave all that baggage behind...
God did it for them he can do for you
Many fall into that trap of jealousy
Competition, being cynical and even false accusations
In bible – slingers
Attack enemy- they would take stones off wall and they would sling then into wells then they could take over city because they shut off water supply
We let the slingers clog up our wells
We dwell on it, think of retaliation—get them back
Keep your well pure----recognize that is a stone coming your way don not let them
Peace joy---wont flow as it should
People try to bring
Shake it off
Let it go
Jesus told disciples shake dust off feet
He knew there would be slingers
we gotta keep focused on God not our opponent....
the enemy would love to distract us during our life with criticism and fakery and bad words...this would keep us from having the confidence to walk in The Anointing and finishing the course, keeping the faith, and fighting the fight---against him in Spirit and Truth and with The Sword of God!
we must use The word to cut into the core of what criticism and jealousy can create around us...we must cut it down before it grows---cut it at the root
face those who oppose you with God’s Leading and His Word
look to Jesus as our example
pray for your enemies
remember we do not battle against flesh and blood but against SATAN (read ephes 6)
stand still and watch and see God move upon your behalf
stop murmuring and taking things into your own hands
get your hands off of it and let Jesus take control of the situation and watch The Glory of The Lord----you will see results...
