Flare-up

Remember when you threw that dish or punched that wall?

God wasn’t shocked. In fact, even running a red light is factored into your relationship with him. You were taken by surprise by your flare-up, but God knew it would happen.  

As we wonder “What in the world got into me!” – God is concerned with:

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.

As Christ followers, we live in the dimension of NEXT:

  • What we do next.
  • What we say next.
  • What we believe next.

“Befores” are only mileposts to remind us to be merciful – as God has been tolerant, lenient, understanding, charitable, forgiving, compassionate, benevolent, generous, considerate, and patient with us. This is why God’s Word, the Bible, encourages us to:

Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. [Colossians 3:13]

God doesn’t hold a grudge. Have that therapy session with Jesus and move on.
