In life, anything brought about by force, there must be a compensation somewhere for there to be resolution. Don’t judge others. With the same severity you judge others you will be judged. You judge yourself in order that you need not be judged
The Holy Spirit abhors compulsion. Manipulating others is a subtle way of compelling them to do your will.
The Holy Spirit moves in an atmosphere of orderly love.
Anything else is corruption
What’s on the inside is always more important than what’s on the outside. When pressure comes, your response shows what’s on the inside
Out of the abundance of the heart [your human spirit] the mouth speaks.
The children of Israel knew the Acts of God and were always grumbling and complaining, wearing Moses down until that which he had not dealt with [the enemy within] cost him his ministry.
God compensated him by showing him a glimpse of the Promised Land he was never to enter
Moses knew the Ways of God, he had fellowship with God by the spirit. The children of Israel knew the acts of God, they only related with God’s provision for their material needs.
Choices are life’s privileges. Living with their consequences is hard enough sometimes without being judged.
It’s often not easy to spot manipulation. All forms of manipulation originate from satan. Whenever I find myself displaying manipulative actions I always remind myself of this important truth.
Satan manipulated Eve through the introduction of questions. The answer to his first question gave away that Eve was not present when God gave the instruction about eating from the trees of the garden. Eve remaining in the conversation gave him an opportunity to manipulate the situation.
Judge yourself only, to prevent being judged. That’s what the Good Book says. Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you,leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift – that’s the instruction from the Bible.
God is more interested in love than in judgement.
