Bless your enemies // 25-05-18

“Bless those who persecute you. Don’t curse them; pray that God will bless them.” Romans‬ ‭12:14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

We often feel justified in nursing our pain and holding on to hateful, vengeful thoughts and feelings but that is so detrimental to our mental, physical and spiritual health and our relationships. Instead we are challenged to speak words of blessing, not curse – even to our enemies, to have an attitude that wants the best for them and not the worst! It sounds outrageous and impossible yet is the very thing that brings release, that unclogs my heart and enables me to see and experience God’s blessing in my life too. Lord, help me to let go and leave the judging to You, as I pray and as I choose to be a blessing, Amen 😊
