The Love Factor

Love is the key to success.

It’s true. But, we don’t generally equate love with success in the natural world.

That’s why God’s Kingdom and how He runs it is counter to the culture that we live in.

Sometimes when we walk with God and we have an expectation that He is up to something good in our lives, we experience opposition, and there are times when you may think that God is responsible.

However, if we study to walk in love, we will learn that every good and perfect gift comes from above; that the Lord does not have bad breaks, sickness and diseases, and such things to give us.

These things belong to the kingdom of darkness.

And when we play the blame game, we are playing on the enemy’s territory. Therefore, we experience roadblocks to our place of destiny.

Whenever we refuse to forgive, give someone a piece of our mind or the like, we give place to the devil who is the one who initiating provative circumstances so that we will respond negatively to them.

However, we when we study to walk in love, we began to understand that no weapon formed against us shall prosper, therefore we don’t have to respond with negative reactions.

Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

psalm 51:1-3, 10

We are in the crossover season. Those of you who have an ear to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying in this season; God is saying that it is time to crossover to your promised land.

However, some of you are having a hard time crossing over because you are walking in unforgiveness, strife, ingratitude.

I want to encourage first not to blame God. He is not the problem.

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

matthew 11:28

The Lord loves you and He is beckoning you to lean into Him, and He will supply your every need.

But not only that. He is able to deliver you from the pain that manifests itself in different ways in your life that you may not even be aware of. Sometimes, we don’t even recognize that we are masking the pain in our lives, and we are being hindered from moving forward because the Lord wants us to lay aside these burdens and give them to Him so that we can crossover to our promised land.

I would dare to say that not learning how to cultivate our love walk is the source of many of our woes.

How to Let Go of Offense

If you are feeling exasperated and needing to move into the new thing that you know that the Lord wants to do in your life, but you do not know how to get there from here, the Lord is saying that He is just a prayer away.

My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.

psalm 84:2

Cry out to God. And He will answer.

A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

ezekiel 36:26

The spirit of pride can have such a grip on one’s heart that it may seem impossible to cry out to God. If you are struggling, trying to decide whether or not you are going to continue your walk with God or turn back to the world, because your agony is more than they can bear…

Accept God’s love that He has extended to you. Ask Him to help you to love Him with all of your mind, soul and strength. And, yes He will even strengthen you to love others who have hurt you. “Vengeance is mine saith the Lord, I will repay”.

So, how do we get there from here? Watch this video from Sister Millie’s Youtube Channel: Kingdom God Matters for more insight about the process of letting go of offense.

“This is something that God has to do”. He can and He will heal your heart to help you let go of offenses, strife, pride.

My Testimony

My most prominent revelation of walking in love when I really wanted to be offended (and I was), was when my husband expressed himself in a way that made me say “really?”. All kinds of emotions would go off in me, and I really did want to be free of them, but I did not know how.

I was offended. I mean, big time. This was really something for me to get over in my spirit. But I did.

When the revelation of “the love factor” manifested within me, I experienced a freedom that is glorious.

These days, I just look at him and smile. Why did I not get this revelation before?

So you know what happens when you stop feeding the demon and submit yourself to God? That’s right. He will leave you alone!

I was willing and obedient. God met me in the way and delivered me as I daily confessed that I honor and respect my husband, and he loves me. Thank You Jesus!

I am still a work in progress, but I recognized that this was an issue in my life that if I did not correct it it would hinder me from going forward.

And I have to add this: The way of Feminism is not going to get you there. You are playing on the Devil’s territory in that space, and even if you do win the earthly prize, it will not profit you in the end.

I also realize that sexism (all of these “isms” stem from the kingdom of darkness) is real, but…

Love is the key to success.

Conclusion

In Psalms 13, David laments about how sorrowful he feels because God has forsaken him. He goes on to say that the Lord is allowing his enemies to triumph over him. In the first four verses, he is in a woe is me state of being.

However, listen to what he quickly concludes in the last two verses:

 But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.

I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.

psams 13:5-6

Letting go of offense is not easy. It takes spiritual maturity to begin unpacking why you feel the way that you do and what to do about it. And this is exactly why you have to begin that journey of taking your focus off of the offense, and using it as an opportunity for spiritual growth.

The Bible says to agree with your adversary quickly. Do not resist. But ask God to help you to use wisdom when you feel offense rising up in you.

When we factor love into the equation of our lives in every aspect of our lives, asking the Lord for His help every step of the way, we will begin to move forward from the bondage of the “isms” to the freedom of Faith, Hope and Love.
