Getting Offended at smaller things
(Spirit helper speaking: ) More and more surprising and strange attacks may come at you from all quarters—even from those very ones you thought were your friends. Be sober. Take daily time to get your strength renewed and joy straight from Heaven; because if you depend on people alone to be your source of encouragement, there are going to be falling outs, and you will feel jilted and saddened. Only the Lord will be there for you in the way that you need Him to be, all the way.
Watch out too, as more people get offended with less and less reasons to. It will take far less now to get people –even your work companions and teammates, family members and staff– put off and aggravated. People will get upset with smaller reason to. And that’s because the enemy is going around throwing something like poisonous gas that causes little sparks to suddenly ignite and flare up big.
But I tell this to you, so that you won’t be “soon shaken”.
2 Thessalonians 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word.
(Jesus speaking: ) Be sober and vigilant. The enemy seeks his prey and will devour anything he can, through the words he can cast you and others down with. He wants to eat up things like faith, endurance, fortitude, patience, and long-suffering loving kindness. These he tears apart, as they are as blockages to his way of doing things. If you let him, you will find misery sets in and surrounds you.
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” 1 Peter 5:8
So you need faith and lots of it, as this will protect these results of faith—your ability to carry on by faith, unflinching.
I have brought you up and cared for you all these years of your life. I will not fail you, but you have to do your part to stay inside Me. I’m very big, you know? And the way that you do it is through daily time in using the Keys and drinking in My New Wine and scripture, in song, in praise, in prayer, in giving Me your cares and trusting Me with the outcome of each thing that is now happening to you.
If you know that I will work out the most difficult parts of your life, that faith will help you to not give the enemy your hope—hope that though things look trying now or look really hard, the good that is coming will make it all seem as light as a feather. You will be glad that you did carry on one step at a time.
