I remember a situation that happened between a group of people and me some years ago and the situation hurt my heart because obviously, someone was being economical with the truth. One of my friends was involved in trying to settle the whole matter, but the way the matter was handled, ordinarily, I would have withdrawn from that relationship. However, I recognised that God wanted me in the relationship. Four years after, the person that was directly involved called me and apologised about that matter. I told him that the incident was enough to have ended our relationship but there was an understanding I had that God brought us together to have a relationship. That was what gave me the strength to go through the pain of that disappointment.
You are never going to have a situation on the earth where something will not go wrong, especially where it involves human beings. One day, I defined the Church for people and said, “Church is people, problems, and devils.” Wherever you find people, you will have problems, and wherever you find problems, the devil is there. However, the Church is also God’s, so, God must be there somewhere also. If the Apostles in Acts 6 did not learn to handle the complaints that arose in the Church then and allowed the matter to disintegrate into offences, the harvest that followed would have been lost.
There are some situations that may lead to the death of an individual if there is no understanding on how to handle offences; especially in a marriage where somebody is cheating on the other partner. In that situation, people want to find a way out. However, the focus of the Holy Spirit is to point your attention to the goal of the spirit of offence which is to steal your harvest in life.
PRAYER: Say to yourself, “I won’t take offence, I will get my harvest in life in Jesus’ name. Amen!”
