TURN YOUR OTHER CHEEK – part 2

James 3:16”For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing.”


 Actually the attacks come from a dark place of insecurity, failure, discouragement and fear; when you have such people around you – be careful.  After two decades of moving with children, youth and varieties of people , I have analyzed this, well, I again repeat the therapy offered by Jesus ““Mathew 5:38-40”  You have heard that it was said,”Eye for eye and tooth for tooth but I tell you do not resist an evil person.  If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also.”  When you resist an evil person, he gets ready with the next strategy of attack, but when you don’t respond, he has to pull his hair.  When your tormentor is harassing you or teasing you, please understand a ‘response’ from you is victory for the evil forces – no matter how you react – either by crying or shouting,  SILENCE WOULD DRIVE THEM MAD THOUGH, are you listening?  Sometimes your tormentor is a person very close to you, she might not talk to you much directly but you are in her mind all the time.  This is hilarious but true.  Now you wonder ‘why am I hated?’ , here is the answer – they are jealous of you!  There you got it. This is common at work, home, school, college and also in the church, learn how to identify, tackle and handle it.  


Bala, how can you not respond when false reports are being said about you?  My response: GOD WILL TAKE CARE!   There are people who are silently suffering out there, I write for each one of you who are bleeding on the inside.  When your tormentor is someone very close to you and you come to know all of their evil schemes, it breaks your heart; however, don’t confront, but ignore it and take it to the Lord.  You never know the POWER you hold in your hand until you get deep into the Bible , the enemy wants to sabotage your peace and spoil your name, so handle this not aggressively and hastily but wisely and calmly.   I read a phrase today which blew my mind, ‘FIGHT TO STAY CALM!’ 

 

Am I a sponge or door mat,  you may ask, but there’s power in absorbing than in retaliating, did you get that?  In a family, when you retort for every word, you are not a winner but a loser – your family, husband, wife, children, sisters, brothers and relatives will not respect you.  Never respond by saying ‘who cares’, no….don’t do that, after a period of silence and endurance, God will lift your head high up.  Don’t forget to pray, fast and read His Word as you battle all the above, that is your ammunition.
