Only three weeks until Passover. In the spiritual realm, that means "crunch time," or perhaps better termed as "crush time." The enemy accelerates into high gear, hoping to crush and destroy anyone that God plans to deliver through the Blood on their doorposts! Are you feeling the crush?
Stop listening to that taunting, tempting voice. Reject the fear. Reject the temptation for revenge, or offense or resentment. The enemy of your soul is trying to trap you into all these negative emotions and lure you back into fleshly places.
Get into the quiet place with the Lover of your soul and listen to HIS still, small Voice. He speaks peace. He speaks encouragement. He speaks Love. YESHUA'S PRESENCE ALWAYS RESULTS IN LOVE. This is what is lacking as the people of the world become lovers of SELF. Yeshua's love is all-powerful because it is a perfect love.
By this we know Love: because Yeshua laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for one another. My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in DEED and in TRUTH. (1 John 3:16,18)
Laying down your life for someone does not necessarily mean you have to physically die for them. It will most often mean you must esteem them above yourself; make their needs more important than yours. Can you do this today? Can you take time to hear His Voice today, and then reach out in love to someone you have neglected or hated or resented? Ask Yeshua to plant HIS love in your heart...and then you can! Then you are living in God and He is living in you:
Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in Him. In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like Him. (1 John 4:16-17)
