“THAT PREACHING WAS FOR YOU!”
Ever had someone say that to you? I’ve overheard others accusingly pointing fingers at another and in an accusatory manner saying, “that was for you!” Guess what? The preaching of the Word is for you to be changed. Bible study is for you to be changed. The studying of the Word is for you to be changed.
Devotionals and even my daily is for you to be changed. Most of my dailies are things God has revealed to me to work on. It may be for you, but it’s not about you. If you are coming at the preaching to criticize, you have an evil heart. If your intention is to always point fingers and argue every point, you are self-righteous. Why do you even care what others are doing? If someone has betrayed you, let them. If another hurt you, let God heal you. Forgive and let go so that you may be healed.
The only person you can change is you. Is your spouse acting foolishly? Pray and intercede for them. Work on yourself. Get rid of those hidden altars in your heart. Crucify your own flesh, not another. There’s a lifetime of work to be done in your own heart. You should fear the Lord and stand in awe of a Holy God. Let Him deal with others- that’s not your job. God is interested in transforming you into a beautiful vessel for His purpose. “Be angry [ literally translated as “stand in awe” ] and sin not; commune with your own hearts upon your beds and be silent (sorry for the things you say in your hearts).” Psalm 4:4 AMPC #runyourrace
