A couple of weeks ago Nick and I were doing some ministry on our local college campus. During our prayer walk, we had a surprisingly hostile encounter with a young woman who is part of a high-control group.
It was something I never experienced before, but felt Jesus with me in the moment. It’s really easy to choose to give back the same treatment you receive, but Jesus tells his followers to do differently: “ Bless and do not curse.”
I was able to stay calm and ask a question in the midst of this encounter- something I attribute to the Holy Spirit because being nine months pregnant with an encounter like that usually renders the opposite type of response.
When was the last time that you chose to bless and not curse?
Please keep praying for “K”- that she finds the true Jesus and encounters His love for her.
