SADLY I HAVE HEARD THIS STATEMENT MORE THAN THE NUMBER OF FINGERS AND TOES PUT TOGETHER.
I have watched people leave hurt and when they march off they usually do not make it spiritually, or they become stagnated and stop moving forward with the passion.
SHOULD YOU LEAVE THE CHURCH BECAUSE SOMEONE HURT YOUR FEELINGS?
I have some good thoughts for you today. The good thing is that you were hurt. WHAT? It means that you opened your heart to love. If you never love you can never be hurt.
What many do is when they get hurt they recoil back into protection mode and they begin to close their hearts so they will not be hurt again. THIS EQUALS DEATH IN YOUR LIFE WITH JESUS AND DEATH IN ALL AREAS OF YOUR LIFE.
When you are hurt and you do not forgive then you are planting for bitterness. THE SEED OF UNFORGIVENESS GROWS UP INTO A HARVEST OF BITTERNESS.
SO WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU ARE HURT?
- Make a decision that NOBODY and no OFFENSE is going to disconnect me from my destiny!
- FORGIVE! Pastor if I forgive, how do I forget? You cannot forget, you are a human, but you can decided to love them even if you do not like them. You know you have not forgiven them if your guts turn every time you see them. Sometimes it takes time to be healed of the wound and that is ok. CHOOSE FORGIVENESS.
- NEVER SHRINK BACK! Your flesh and the devil would love to get you isolated so they can devour your love for Jesus and destroy your destiny. MOVE FORWARD AND NEVER MOVE BACK! SIT UPFRONT AND GRAB THE ALTAR FOR WORSHIP.
If you cannot be in the same church they are in then how will you be in the same heaven?
1 John 3:15, Anyone who hates another brother or sister is really a murderer at heart. And you know that murderers don’t have eternal life within them.
Matt. 6:15, But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.
NEVER BE A RUNNER! NEVER LEAVE WHEN YOU ARE HURT.
