Have you ever asked God to remove hatred from your heart? Have you ever had this happen to your where hatred filled your heart and you were so mad at someone or a situation that you could just boil? I think we all have.
I think many times in these situations its best to ask God for peace and understanding & calmness in our hearts. Its not easy going through life, sometimes people just have a real tendency to make us angry and or upset. Many times its better to forgive and forget rather then to become confrontational.
God wants us all to get along and not to become confrontational. He wants us to love one another as brothers and help each other, not harm each other. As it states in Galatians 5 14 Love your neighbor as you love yourself.
We all have had those situations where people really test our nerves and we ask God how to get through it. I remember one time we a neighbor who had a Dog that kept barking especially in the middle of the night. We went over and talked to them several times and finally had to report them to the Animal control. That helped and they eventually moved and all turned out fine.
We asked ourselves and God what the best way to handle and even though there were times where were angry especially after losing sleep. But God got us through and made it better. We just had to have the faith and belief to know that he was working to resolve it. Stay strong don’t give up and you will get through.
When we ask God to remove the hatred from our hearts we almost immediately feel the flood of Love an peace flow in. As we let God take on the big challenges and make things better. We let him carry us through and not get caught up in the things of the flesh such as hatred and sin.
It takes time and it may not happen overnight but eventually you will start to to get through your days feeling better and better. You will look at your friends and coworkers differently. More from of a stand point of how can I help you? Can I pray for you?
Have you ever tried that? Ask someone maybe at your office or possibly a neighbor. Ask them how they are doing and if they tell you about a difficult situation they maybe going through, shock them and say I will pray for you. You know many people have never been told this. And this important step slowly starts to remove the hatred from your heart.
God Bless and have a great day.
