Do you hear yourself? “I am older, you should listen to me, I know more!”
Can not an older person learn something from a younger person: see life in a new way? I have lived a different life and learned different things that are TRUTH! They don’t all pertain to you but some of them do: are you TOO PROUD to listen?
In my latest case of dealing with a Proud person, I got shut down: BOOM!!! You are not aloud to talk! I tried again and: BOOM!!! They stopped me again, my knowledge has no merit, according to them.
Matthew 23:6-12 They Love their Place of Honor at banquets, and the chief seats in the synagogues, and respectful greetings in the marketplaces, add being called by men, Rabbi. But do not be called Rabbi; for One is you Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth your father, for One is you Father, He who is n heaven. And do not be called leaders; for One is you Leader, Christ. But the greatest among you shall be your servant. And whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.
I Corinthians 13:4-5 LOVE is patient, love is kind, is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong.
This is for those who don’t believe Jesus talks to people:
John 14: 16-17 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever, the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not behold Him or know Him, you know Him because He abides with you, and will be in you.
John 10:16b I must bring them also, and they shall hear My voice; and they shall become one flock with one shepherd.
John 10:27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
I have the Spirit! I hear His voice!
Romans 8:14 For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
Galatians 516 I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh(senses)
Galatians5:18 If you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law.
Galatians 5:22 The fruit of the Spirit is Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such there is no law.
II Corinthians 5:7 Walk by Faith, not by sight!
Galatians 5:25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.
I will be writing how I started to Understand it was God talking to me; I had no concept it was God the first time I heard HIS VOICE, I thought I was arguing with myself, I didn’t listen or obey: I got into big trouble!
My desire is to Walk by the Spirit every day all day long, it is not always easy; my flesh, my desire wins out sometimes even though my greatest desire is to follow God and His Spirit!
Paul says in Romans 7:19 The good that I wish, I do not do but I practice the very evil that I do not wish.
Romans 8:1-2 There is therefore now NO condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and death.
