I was talking to a good friend the other day. Believing for restoration of his own marriage. After being divorced. Immediately I heard Holy Spirit. “The enemy has convinced him that his kindness for his spouse is his weakness. His kindness is not his weakness it’s actually his strength.”
I know I have said many times in the past that such and such takes my kindness as a weakness. I could totally relate.
The Lord begin to tell me the enemy knows it is his strength so he made him believe he’s weak when he is actually strong.
I say all this to say that agape love doesn’t convey weakness it conveys strength. It takes strength to be kind. Notice the Bible doesn’t say love is nice because anyone can be nice it takes no effort to be nice. Nice can be simply saying hello to a neighbor. Kindness is gentleness even when the person your expressing gentleness towards heart may be cold as ice.
Patience take’s strength as well. Forgiveness takes strength this stuff doesn’t come easy. Sometimes the world will abuse the strength of a man or woman.
I could go one by one regarding this scripture. That would take way too much time. So I advise you to go read 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. You tell me if that’s weakness or if it takes strengthen to love like Christ instructs?
I remember one day at work the women were talking how they don’t want a man that is too nice or they would walk over him. Every last one of them that were saying these things had extremely toxic and abusive relationships. I began to chime in and I was like wow so given the opportunity they would treat a man that is kind to them with the same disrespect they have experienced. Let’s simply put it this way they would become their abuser, or mimic their experience!
It saddened me that people who display some form of kindness were seen as pushovers. Notice I said kindness and nice are two different things. These women were talking about men that were nice how they would run over them. They were ready to flip the script on a man who was kind. But they wouldn’t dare display this behavior with the mean and disrespectful men they currently had. I wouldn’t be surprised if they had nice men that turned on them. Nice takes no effort. If given the opportunity to have a man that is gentle they were ready and willing to unleash their wrath of demons!
They had their demons but they were submitting to higher ranking demons than their own was my take on this. It’s crazy how broken the world is. Women say that they want a gentlemen but would punish him for being a gentle-man.
Little did these women know they were in agreement with those demons to rob them of their peace, because if God blessed them they openly spoke they would abuse it.
I then believed these single women- some married were in toxic situations and physically abusive relationships because they painted a canvas of chaos with their words. Those poisonous words that they were feasting on were the toxins in their hearts. They were in full agreement with their foolishness.
Hurt people hurt people also if given the opportunity! If given the opportunity they verbally would destroy what is good!
Sad, we need to heal so we can stop being ignorant! This ain’t cute. It’s ugly, it’s disrespectful, it’s rude, it’s demeaning, and it’s unattractive. We need to heal so we aren’t passing generational demons through the bloodline.
This is delusional nonsense.
The sad part they were praising each other in full agreement. Girl yes I know that’s right etc. I remained quiet shaking my head as God instructed me to only listen. Their wrong made them believe they were right! Pride is something else.
Some were believers.
Some were nonbelievers!
The enemy made them all look the same you couldn’t tell who was who that day just be their conversation. They were camouflaged together!
The word of God says you will know them by their fruit. Being a believer is not a name badge it’s a lifestyle. Well that seals that!
The word of God says the older women shall teach the younger women, even the older women were encouraging this behavior. This is exactly how curses are passed on!
We gots to do better as a generation and teach each other the Kingdom way when it comes to marriage and relationships!
