The Disappearing Dictators

7 Feb

The Disappearing Dictators…

A believer suffered under Stalin and other dictators for his Christian faith. He had a dream one night that all these dictators were at a table.

Instead of condemning them, hating them and blaming them for all the suffering they caused him, he asked them for forgiveness for not being able to thank them for the blessings they gave him.

Through the persecution came God’s great blessings, purification, holiness, humility and unconditional joy. He forgave them, asked for their forgiveness, thanked them, and one by one they disappeared. The man had no more enemies.

When you fight your enemies in the flesh, you have a greater enemy. Forgive them, love them and they disappear. You will no longer see them as an enemy. When you love your enemies, they aren’t enemies anymore.

Holding on to wrongs, injustices and sins against you will be a burden. Thank God for them, for the purification, holiness, long-suffering, endurance, unconditional love and joy that came as a result.

One by one, these problems will disappear, replaced by blessings. Try today and see what happens, because in God’s grace, you have the power to turn curses into blessings.

Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Romans 12:14

Do not hold on to hate, wrongs and problems. Release them to our God. Our enemies and those who hate us are only temporary. But our blessings, holiness and love last forever.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
