Apostle Grace Lubega
James 4:1 (KJV); From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?
Every war outside a man is the result of a war within.
When a person starts to fight you, you must understand that he is fighting a war within.
This knowledge is important because if you cannot perceive that a war outside is a result of a war within, you will take many attacks from individuals too personally.
You will in retaliation, attack a symptom instead of dealing with a disease.
Do you know the cause of social media wars between Christians and ministers of the gospel? One man with an internal war started a fight, and the one attacked, who had no discernment of this internal war, launched a counterattack.
How do you think God deals with us? Is He fixated on how we behave on the outside or is He more interested in what is going on, on the inside?
This is the wisdom that causes us to pray for and love our persecutors. We see more than they know.
As a mature Christian, never take things at face value. There is more than meets the eye. See things from a spiritual vantage point.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Every war outside a man is the result of a war within. This is the wisdom that causes us to pray for and love our persecutors. We see more than they know.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this knowledge. By this wisdom, I deal with any form of opposition. I deal with people from a higher plane and based on a deeper maturity. By this, I build and never break. I minister love instead of fighting others. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
