Apostle Grace Lubega
John 5:30 (KJV); I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
Judging matters in life is governed by several biblical principles. When a person does not follow these principles of judging matters, they offend in the spirit realm.
One such principle is in our theme scripture, and is to hear before you judge. If Jesus lived by this principle, what makes you think you are exonerated, child of God?
I have seen so many Christians who judge matters without hearing God. They express very strong opinions about certain issues and people without a single clue on what God thinks about the person they are judging or the situation in question.
Some people have even gone so far as to write off people without hearing the opinion of heaven. They have cut off people from their lives and burnt important bridges without hearing God on these issues.
If a sister or brother is faced with a difficult situation and their life seems up and down or they make a decision that you do not agree with or understand, it is a sign of spiritual maturity to seek God’s mind on that brother or sister.
While you may take it lightly, judging without hearing comes with grave consequences. You may make radical decisions that derail you off the path of your destiny or you may make the sort of pronouncements that prove to be a dent in your life’s testimony.
Always hear before you judge.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Judging matters in life is governed by several biblical principles. One such principle is to hear God before you judge.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for the clarity of Your voice in my life. I can never judge without hearing because I have exercised myself in the discipline of this principle. I hear You in all things because Your voice is my one and true guide, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
