Hate and Love Cannot Co-Exist

A lot of us get involved in hating people we’ve never met. Unwittingly, when reveling in any hateful activity, one is inviting the negative spirit of the enemy, and losing Joy . We all know that hatred of our fellow man is not of GOD. So how can we expect GODS Word, GODS Power and GODS Favor to reside in a place where the enemy has a prevalent presence?! 

If there is disfunction, lack, sickness, the absence of Joy, etc. I bet we can trace it back to an ongoing hate. 

Set yourself and your family free. Yes, the effects can spill over to those close to you. So check your hate levels and replace it with Love. GOD can do a lot with a loving heart. Much more than he can do with a hate filled one.. A Loving heart, mind and word can always set the stage for new souls being saved. Isn’t that your purpose anyway? 

You can only serve one master. Hate is not of GOD. It would be a no-brainer to say what master would be served by being hate-filled and that master is not GOD. You can only save a soul, if GOD is in control of your own soul. What’s eating away at your witness? What’s eating away at your favor today?

The Discipline of Life 

Discipline is necessary. Disciplining oneself gives insight into what you want out of life.  Discipline shows GOD how bad you want HIS will for your life over your own. Discipline is putting your flesh under subjection. 

The world may deem discipline negatively because its conditioned to have an “I want it right now” mentally. Many only have to think back on some of  those “gotta have it ” moments only to agree that many of those moments you wished you would’ve thought twice to avoid the drama that ensued. 

Being disciplined may seem like a bore but it’s better than sitting back crying over foolish mistakes. Never fear though, even those who shun discipline eventually have their fill of the major pains, heartaches and repercussions that result. That is when most intelligent people decide to turn over a new leaf. 

Sometimes denying yourself is the best gift to you. When you recognize that Discipline no longer is your enemy, it then becomes your new best friend.
