I heard something today that was very thought provoking:
Offences come from Satan trying to make you fall. This person went on to explain the Greek meaning for the word offence, this really got my attention, —–>Offences “skandalon” in the Greek, originally was the name of the part of a trap to which the bait is attached, hence, the trap or snare itself.
So in other words, Offence is a trap or snare itself, that Satan uses to try to make you fall by the way.
If we are not quick to release an offence that has been directed toward us, it will lead to our own downfall.
Unforgiveness will cause you to be bitter, have unhealthy relationships, unanswered prayers, misperceptions, it will also cause you to be out of the will of GOD.
Let us be quick to forgive! Quick to release an offence! Refuse to allow it to find ground in your heart! Even if the person who brought the offense never repents or asks forgiveness from you…. YOU let it go!
Don’t you become ensnared in the enemy’s trap to cause you to fall by the way.
It’s empowering to know who your real enemy is….don’t get caught up on the person who is giving the offence…look beyond the person and go straight to the source…Satan himself.
Offences will come but you don’t have to bite the bait!
Walk in love and exercise righteousness!
Great peace have they that love thy law:and nothing shall offend them (Psalms 119:165)
GOD Bless Ya’ll!!!
