Hello World….Termites

Dealing with termites is a problem.  Or maybe I should say that dealing with unforgiveness is like dealing with termites.

Termites are not noticeable at first.  Termites eat away at your home and in the beginning you don’t notice that they are damaging the foundation of your home.  Here a little, there a little; everything seems to be OK.   But if you don’t deal with the problem, they can eat away your entire foundation and you will be living in a situation that will cost you your entire life savings and more…..

The same goes for problems in your life that have festered into serious unforgiveness toward folks that have hurt you.  The past, present and future happiness can be wiped out just by letting a moment of unforgiveness turn into a life-time of pain, anger and hurt.  When you let anger turn to bitterness, it takes on resentment and you begin this downward spiral to hatred which can lead to murder. Keep it up and you could spend your life in jail…..

God does not want us to wallow in the past or the present. He wants to give us a future that is filled with joy, peace and happiness that is called abundant life.  If we get bogged down by some stupid mistake we made or someone else made toward us, we become tangled in a stronghold that will take over our life and make us the most unhappy, depressed, hateful, grumpy individuals.  If the enemy can get an angry response from you toward another, he will use that against you and make you into a negative just like him. 

An unforgiving spirit is an evil spirit that will cause devastation in your life and the lives of all around you.   I have found that if you keep a short account of what others do to you by immediately turning to God and stating:  “Father, forgive them, they know not what they are doing. Help me forgive right now.” HE DOES IT for me and in me.  When I was young and a lot dumber, I would get mad and seethe over everything, cuss and cry and carry on like a wild woman, develop headaches that were monsters, feel like I wanted to hurt someone, and this would last until some time had passed and I could get over it. But I still had this mean spirit about what had taken place and every time I would see that person I would get all tied up in knots thinking about how they had talked to me, treated me or acted toward me.  It would all fly right back up into my face and  I would be getting mad again.

That all changed when Jesus came into my heart.  When I understood that He had been done a lot worse than anything I had ever encountered and He never sinned, I wanted to have that same ability.  The ability to live above and not below.  I wanted to be able to walk like He walked and do the things He had done and live seriously happy.   He taught me how to deal with termites.

This is just a short version of what I have learned over the years.  One; take life seriously and recognize that you only have one life to live.  Two; assume responsibility for your own life and realize that God made man in His own image, but satan stole the joy. By that I mean; everyone has sinned and all human-kind has the same propensity to do evil.  You alone are responsible for your sin. Another person may have played a part in what happened, but you are totally responsible for your own unforgiving spirit.  Three; say out loud and agree with the Lord that your unforgiveness toward another is sin.  Four; Get rid of it by laying it down, surrender hostility, surrender anger, and the unforgiving spirit will flee. Tell God, “I forgive so and so – forgive me!”  He will and you will be too.

If the enemy tries to come back, tell him, “I am forgiven, God said so.  Take it up with the Lord!”

Have you ever thought about these words?       DO EVIL.       Take the   O   out and what do you have?

IF you take the O out of your hurts and tell the devil to be gone, grow up and become a responsable human being, the enemy can not turn you into a negative termite like himself.   That is the difference between being human and being like the devil……

Think about it…..
