“Now some have become arrogant, as though I were not coming to you. But I will come to you soon, if the Lord wills, and I shall find out, not the words of those who are arrogant but their power” (1 Corinthians 4:18-19)
There are always those in our midst who do not believe what the Lord says. He even spoke of them when He instructed believers to leave the tares amongst the wheat. They act as if they had immunity. But neither cater to them, nor empower them. Be diligent to do what the Lord gives you to do knowing that it is You who is in relationship with Him. He is always the final authority.
Lord, help me to learn how to walk the fine line in this world that I may remain faithful amongst those who are not faithful. Let me not be carried away with the nonsense of those who will not listen, but obediently look to You for all things. You have given me the words of eternal life. Let them richly dwell within me that I would now and always abide in the truth of Your eternal presence.
Thank You, Lord Jesus, that You have given all the instruction I need. Guide me in the way of living my life here and now that I may abide with You and walk in Your presence. Give me instruction when those who will not listen arise that I may live into the kind of relationships You are developing within me knowing that I am always in Your presence. Be my guide always, Lord. Amen.
