Offences Will Come

Truth be told opposition is part of life. Sometimes it can come directly through people or it can be spiritual as though all hell has broken loose against you. Ephesians 6:12 reminds us who is against us: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.(KJV).In other words, don’t try to fight things ‘down here’ if the problem is actually ‘up there’ in the heavenlies.
Sadly, sometimes opposition comes via the people from whom you would least expect it. It’s not someone out on the edges of your life, but it could be a close family member, a friend or a brethren in Church, who is threatened by what God is doing in your life. When you come up against opposition, refuse to be ruled by someone in a negative way.
Who is ruling your spirit and taking far too much of your focus in a negative way? If you find yourself attacking someone who wronged you through your words, your actions or through your own social handles, I’ll be honest with you, you have given that person power over you which should never be the case.

No mature Christian who is seasoned in the Word has any reasonable excuse to live their life offended.

Jesus told us that offenses would come. In John 16:33 Jesus said, “In this world you will have tribulation” but He also said, “I have overcome the world.” So if Jesus has given us the spirit of an overcomer, we have no real excuse to live our lives offended or as the victim of someone else’s opposition or pain; we are told to rule our own spirit well.

Romans 12:21
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Proverbs 15:24
The way of life winds upward for the wise, That he may turn away from hell below.
Proverbs 15:24
In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Jesus, teach me to live without offense.  Give me an overcoming spirit that is confident in you and in your ability to overcome darkness with light.
