Hey Kings and Queens! :)
Good Day Everyone!
Are you out there shining bright like the diamond that you're?
Smile :) It looks great on you.
It's time for JustATouchof_J's Affirmation's on my JustATouchofJ Mobile App, Instagram's Facebook's, Tumblr, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, Reddit, LinkedIn, and Blackvibes.com just to name a few! ;)
This weeks affirmation comes from:
(Matthew 6:24) No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other.
Well.. I was out walking the other day and the Holy Spirit started dropping a dyme of wisdom on me. Lol! I'd just got done listening to Pastor Joyce Meyer and all I kept hearing in my head was they can't serve two masters. So I asked God to explain.
God said, "It's a conflict of interest!" And for me to Google what conflict of interest means. Yall know I had to be obedient and look it up! Omg guess what the definition is? A situation in which the concerns or aims of two "different"parties are "incompatible."
Hunny! Key words are DIFFERENT & INCOMPATIBLE!
Are any of you out there in a incompatible situation because you're different? Different from your friends, love ones, or co-workers. Is there something about you that sets you apart from the rest?
It could mean that the conflict of interest is your attachment to someone who's serving two different masters. Gods word say in (1 Corinthians 15:33) Do not be misled: "Bad company corrupts good character."
I remember when I was in a romantic relationship that wasn't Good for me. At the time I didn't know it but as things progressed I found myself shying away from following God. I stopped devoting so much of my time to God because the man I was in love with told me that I loved God too much for him. Not only was I hurt but.. I was confused. I didn't understand how someone I loved so much didn't want me to love God the way the Lord said that I should.
I started to doubt myself and even stopped worshiping the most High in efforts to please him. I didn't see the bad company corrupting good character. I didn't see the conflict of interest. I didn't see the difference in the incompatibility. I didn't see me living out (Matthew 6:24) No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other.
And you might not either. I'm not sure what your situation may be but.. God wants me to tell you to watch your circle. Sometimes we can put our love for others above God and ourselves.
Needless to say, I learned a value lesson. My situation ended by him cheating. That devastation cause deep pain. Understanding that no one is perfect God said now you must learn how to forgive who you loved over me even after they didn't love you correctly! God loves us so much that he gave His only begotten son. (John 3:16) So.. after the relationship ended I couldn't display hate. God reminded me that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12)
He reminded me that the enemy will use anything he can to separate us from the love of God.
I'm saying all of this to say that I tried to serve two masters and it didn't work! Now I serve one because through Christ my vision is clearer. Now I can see.
Again I don't know your story or your situation, but this week affirmation is all about you checking yourself because you might be wrecking yourself. It was all about my choice as well as it is yours.
Repeat after me.. I have to stop putting myself in situation and around individuals who can cause me pain because I want to be accepted. And.. I shouldn't hate them for they know not what they really do! I must watch my circle and I must realize that my circle could be my conflict of interest. Incompatibility sometimes comes at its finest and that can hurt me. I must love God first, myself, then others.
Two masters can't live inside of me. Gods word says I will be devoted to the one and despise the other.
This is #JustATouchof_J .. Everything else is God. I'm just tryna put it all out there in pieces for you Baby! ;)
