We are reading Mark 3 in our Spoken Word Bible Reading Plan for today. Look at verses 1-5 to see another example of JESUS being about His Father's business!
That man was overjoyed that JESUS was doing this work! So were all of the others whom JESUS had healed and set free. Do you know who else was elated at what JESUS was doing? Those who truly knew their God and were actually looking for His coming! That would NOT include the Pharisees who were plotting against JESUS! Even though He was doing what was promised in the Word of God and THEY should have studied to find out what the Word of God said about it and what they, themselves should be doing! When this man with the withered hand was healed, THIS is what the unbelieving Pharisees did! Verse 6:
Then the Pharisees went out and immediately held a consultation with the Herodians against Him, how they might [devise some means to] put Him to death.
I have two things to share with you concerning this! The first is to exhort YOU that you should never be as these particular Pharisees! If you see someone teaching, preaching and healing, yet you don't agree with what they say or the way that they are operating, then I suggest to you that YOU need to spend some time in the Word of God and in fellowship with Holy Spirit, because you just might find yourself moving against GOD! There are as many different ways to minster as there are people and personalities called by God to do so! The bottom line for all of us should be that if JESUS is being exalted as Saviour and the ONLY WAY to the Heaven of the Bible, then leave them alone and go about your own calling and anointing!
The second thing I want to share is found in the Psalm for today! Psalm 59:16-17 show us what David's answer was when someone came against him.
Refuse to take it personally when people come against you, remembering that it is NOT really people, but the enemy moving on them, that is the source of the problem! When we react to those times in the way that David reacted, then we will receive supernatural protection, provision and safety no matter what or who comes against us! remember, if God if FOR you, and He IS, then it doesn't do ANYONE any good to come against you! GOD'S GOT THIS! AMEN! Here is Hillsong UNITED with "Shadow Step":
Shalom in Him!
