Do You Get Upset When People Talk About You?
Luke 6: 22 “Blessed are you when men hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man.”
Have you ever found yourself hurting because you’re being talked by those around you even though your only goal is to serve God and walk in kingdom mindedness?
Don’t be consumed by the your emotions because it’s only a trick of the enemy. He’s trying to keep you upset so that you’ll remain unforgiving, which allows him to maintain a stronghold in your life.
When the anointing of God is on your life, those who are outside of that anointing will be uncomfortable around you. It’s not you they have a problem with, it’s the conviction they feel in the spirit because of the anointing. It makes them uncomfortable and they just can’t seem to put their finger on it.
In your mind you may be asking; “So why do they hang around?”
Because the Spirit of God which dwells within you and drives your anointing is calling to that which is lacking in them. The enemy is using gossip and your unforgiving nature to keep the two of you at bay from one another, for if you come together the anointing will take hold and elevate both of you.
How do we survive through this time of gossip and false statements?
Change our view about what it means to be talked about, come in line with the blessing of it.
Matt 5:10-11 “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.”
I’m blessed when you’re uncomfortable with my anointing, and I love you in spite of what you think you feel about me. I know if I remain open to God’s blessing on me, the anointing will spill over to you and you’ll become blessed. Once you become blessed I will be blessed again for sharing my blessing! A double portion! God is great isn’t He!
Remain open, keep love in your heart, bless others as you have been blessed so that you might be blessed!
