Tangled…

Do you know individuals who seem to lead “tangled” lives?  They are those who create chaos. They ooze fearfulness and their actions speak bitterness. They are bound in the neverending war to “win”. “For I see that you are in the gall of bitterness and in the bond of iniquity.” (Acts 8:23)

So, you nod your head and say, “I know that person…what do I do about them?”

First, “be sober-minded; watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:8) Don’t be fooled. The devil wants your life here on earth to be miserable, and so enters that “tangled” person stage left in your life, but remember this fact, “the joy of the Lord is your strength.” (Nehemiah 8:10) So, even though the devil puts a thorn in your side (2 Corinthians 12:7) it is to perfect you, as “the Lord will accomplish what concerns you; your loving-kindness, O Lord, is everlasting…” (Psalm 138:8).

Secondly, you can pray for those “tangled” people, as they really are way worse off than you. You know this by virtue of their treatment towards you and by their messed up lives, so, “…I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who hurt you.” (Luke 6:27-36)  Remember, to “be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6)

Lastly, you can rejoice! You can rejoice knowing Jesus wins every time, so, “…thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:57)

And, Jesus is in the business of changing hearts so you can keep the faith and have hope!  (Psalm 51:10)

May you today and always, “rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” (Roman’s 12:12)

Love, Sarah Marie
