Our war against the work of enemy that keep distracting our focus and draining our energy through many ways will get more intense. The most effective way that the enemy usually use is through our closest people who are still immature, who don’t have a living fellowship with God, and who live self-centeredly to begin to ‘attack’ us.
If we keep seeing this situation as something that is “normal/natural”, and we thought it happened just because of incidental misunderstanding, lack of communication, or other human excuses, then we will never overcome the root of this issue accurately. We will keep being busy taking care of other’s feeling through psychological ways! Consequently, the problem will keep on going in the future!
Therefore, we have to rise in the Spirit. Begin to pray in the mighty power of His Spirit, crush down the work of the enemy through the power of declaration and prophecy! Stop looking for other way! Cast out our passiveness and lazyness to fight in the spirit! Fight fervently! Take back our closest ones from the enemy’s hands. Most importantly, ask for the divine love of GOD to fill our heart so that it can flow to them!
Then, ask the Holy Spirit to guide us in every truth to face these people. This is the process which God intended for us to be more mature and to be more like Christ. All we need to do is just obey. Make sure that our heart is always full with God’s peace and joy! This thing is not so hard, but not so easy as well. Because of the human nature that always respond crime over crime. But one thing that we should remember: we are new creations that should have different/divine attitude and point of view. We are also able to see differently through the eyes of the spirit, that they are the victims of the enemy’s work who desires to bring chaos in our lives. Therefore, do not “attack” them. But flow the love of God to them and fight in the spirit for them, pray for them with all of your heart and strength.
Matthew 5:44-48 (NKJV) But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.
Ps. Steven Agustinus
