As the soldiers were about to take Paul into the barracks, he asked the commander, ‘May I say something to you?’ Acts 21:37
Today you are invited to consider how you react when you are threatened. Do you become defensive or are you able to remain polite and respectful? What does it take to push you to the point of retaliation? Where is this happening in your life at the moment? How are you responding to any antagonism that is thrown at you? What do you do – what would you like to do? Talk to God about these things. Be honest with Him. Tell Him what is on your heart. Then spend some time in silence and listen to His reply to you. If you want to, climb into His arms and let Him love, comfort and heal you. His arms are wide open waiting for you to run to Him.
May God bless you with courage, perseverance and healing as you deal with antagonism in your life.
