daily word - love your enemies

Dale Cresap's picture

I told you to love your enemies. Do you find this to be the most difficult commandment of all? Even if you can get past your natural aversion at doing this, how do you go about it? You could pray for them; a prayer of loving and blessing and favor rather than judgment. For those who hurt you is your first response to hurt them back or to try to understand their situation? Is there anything you can do that is more concrete and visible? I address this question by teaching you to turn the other cheek, and to be kind to those who despitefully use you. This is how you can heap coals of fire on their heads, and I want you to understand this as something beneficial.

A testimony of the power of forgiveness

Dear CWG Ministry,

Thank you so much for today’s devotional message, love your enemies. I do get your messages almost every day at about 8:05am, normally my morning time, and I do share with some of our members and friends on my WhatsApp and Email, and when students at school I share with student leaders to minister to other students during daily evening fellowship / prayers; when student leaders have no time to prepare daily messages, they normally use CWG daily messages. With the virus now, all students are home and I am only sharing with friends and those on my phone contact. God is good. Thank you for this message, Love your Enemies. I shared on my Whatsapp and about 129 wrote to me and many liked it.

 A certain lady shared with her 74-year-old mother. She had been sick and her legs could not stand or walk without support since 2013. According to her daughter, her mother took a certain man to court in 2012 after the death of her husband. She claimed the man robbed their properties and poisoned her husband, but she lost the court case. After three to four months she felt sick, started with joint pain and she never walked since that time. Many people asked her to forgive the man but she could not and, according to her, she never wanted to forgive this man until death.

The daughter told me that when I shared the message with her, they were all together and she read it to her mother. Immediately her mother started crying and left.  She went to her room and came back with 9 names which, according to her, she had vowed never to forgive them. But after this devotional message today, she came back and told the daughter she had forgiven all her enemies. Her daughter then led her to Christ Jesus.

According to her, after she prayed for her, the mother went to rest after lunch (at about 1:48 pm) with a printed copy of "love your enemies" devotional message from CWG Ministries. She slept for about 3 hours. At about 4:13pm, the mother called her, her leg was restored! When she tried to get her walking stick, she realized that  she had strength. When the daughter came, and asked her to try to walk, she started walking well until now!

Have you ever wished you could just sit down and have a long talk with the Lord? Wouldn't it be wonderful to move beyond having a theology that states that God loves you to actually hearing Him whisper words of love into your heart? When you're worried or confused, wouldn't you love to see the situation from His perspective and hear how He wants you to respond? When things don't seem to be going your way and your prayers aren't answered the way you had hoped, wouldn't it be great to hear Him tell you where He is in the midst of it, and what He is working out in your life? Are you ever just a little bit jealous of others who say with such confidence, "The Lord said...."?

Twelve Weeks to Spiritual Mastery - Group Coaching

A group coaching experience with Mark Virkler

Because I could not find a Spirit-anointed teacher/coach, I spent ten extremely frustrating years seeking to hear God’s voice!!! Suggestions offered did not help me, things like: “You just know that you know. It is a still small voice. He speaks from your heart.” No one could give me the answer I needed which was: Hearing God’s voice is as simple as quieting yourself down, fixing your eyes on Jesus, recognizing His voice as spontaneous, flowing thoughts and writing down His flow as it is coming. Test what you have written after the flow is done, NOT while it is occurring.

Counseled by God

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 146 Pages

Have you ever been defeated by negative emotions such as anger, fear, guilt, inferiority, condemnation or depression? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level? Is there a form of Christian counseling that begins and ends with the movement of Christ within your heart, rather than simply with the words of man?
