LOVE – Love is hard to do sometimes.  It is hard to love someone who is driving 35 mph in a 50 mph zone and you are already late.  Even harder is loving someone who you know is wrong, be it lying, cheating, stealing or what ever the case may be.  Well, we must love them too.  Why?  The main reason is we are commanded by God “…That we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another,” 1 John 3:23.  Although we do believe in Jesus, that loving one another part can still be tough.  Furthermore, we are to “…not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.” 1 John 3:18.  So we can’t just say we love them?  Nope!  We have to love them in spite of.  We have to love them because they too are born of sin and are not yet made perfect.  We love them because God loves us in spite of our iniquities.  Just like we make conscious decisions everyday to do what is right, we have to choose love instead of anger.  Anger , frustration and fear is not a spirit of God, so why do we accept them and rebuke the “bigger and badder” spirits of the enemy?   The spirit of fear will invite his buddy, the spirit of frustration, who invites his buddy the spirit of anger and so on and so forth.  The Spirit of God, Truth, Love and Freedom – The Holy Spirit – is a gentleman.  The Holy Spirit only dwells where He is welcome.  He, the Holy Spirit, doesn’t hang out, do business with or deal with the spirits of the enemy.  If He doesn’t feel welcome, He will quietly leave.   Whatever spirit you allow to dwell in your soul is the spirit that will overflow into the world through you.  Rebuke the spirit of anger, believe in the name of Jesus and choose the Spirit of Love – the Spirit of God! – Donna Warren
