Last month I realized that part of the reason I retreat from some situations is a refusal to take on someone else's"burden of disobedience". When you know that another has the knowledge and the ability to do God's word, yet refuses to obey, it is a burden.
Their refusal and poor lifestyle becomes a burden to you if you allow yourself
to be sucked into a whirl wind of rebellion. This is a choice. Yours and theirs. God has enabled us to make the right choice in all instances.
Rebellion causes people to be miserable and blame others for their choices. Do not become a victim of their choice or their sin.
We are to lift up the name of Jesus by our fruit. By confessing His word, by lending physical help when needed and prayerful help always. Yet, the wicked one is never satisfied with_______ (you can fill in that blank).
Do not allow someone else's choice to serve the devil make you a victim with them.
Be Led by the Holy Spirit of God in your response and prayer, in all things, with all people.
The burden of disobedience becomes a grief of spirit and mind when you try to do
for the other person,what they are not willing to do in agreement with God's word for their well being.
The burden of disobedience is a choice. A wrong choice. But everyone has a choice and is responsible for the choice that is made.
Stay in agreement with God's word on every subject. God will require each mans choice. He has already chosen us.
The disobedient will try to tell you that you are self-righteous, wrong, haughty, full of yourself, responsible for them, to them, and their choice. Wrong.
Yet, no one says these thing to a STOP sign on the road. Yet, this an be an indicator of caution, observation, and thoughtful response.
Ignore it to your own peril.
God gives you a choice. Choose life.
if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that [were] on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house
, we will serve the LORD.
Join me, as I declare,
"but as for me and my house
, we will serve the LORD."
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, [that] I have set before you life
and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life
, that both thou and thy seed may live:
That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, [and] that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he [is] thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen
you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
1 Peter 2:9
But ye [are] a chosen
generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
For every man shall bear his own burden
For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden
