During our times of becoming or being emotionally and mentally tired, we often focus on how to revenge ourselves from those who come after us with evil intentions. This is not the proper way in how we should handle what looks like to many of our defeat. We should never ask our FATHER in the name of JESUS to bring about harm or to quote back to HIM this scripture, [vengeance is MINE, said the LORD].
Before the crucifixion of JESUS CHRIST, those prayers that we find in the Old Testament would have been sufficient. But after the crucifixion of JESUS CHRIST, they no longer are. During the time when JESUS CHRIST walked among HIS creations, mankind. JESUS spoke and taught about being loving even to those who will come against us.
Nehemiah 4:4 Our FATHER can see clearly that the loads that we are carrying because we have not taken them to HIM, has caused us to become mentally and physically weaken, that our strength is about to fail.
Our FATHER has mercy for us, we have HIS loving-kindness, we have HIS pity. HE is not blind, HE does not turn HIS head to keep from looking at us. HE is aware that some of us are filled up with the contempt and pride of others. They ridicule us because they are arrogant and prideful. The problem is that some of us are not aware of these facts. And because of our ignorance of these facts, we do not live our lives knowing that our FATHER provides us with HIS grace because we are afflicted and humble.
