Nourishment for Your Soul and Mind: January 18, 2020

Has life ever really put you through the ringer? You thought you was doing everything right and it still slaps you in the face? Or perhaps you slipped of course, you steer back on and the bumps continue? Then a “friend” comes along, someone you look to for encouragement in those dark hours and their words just knock you down further. That had to be how Job was feeling, my heart sunk for him as each friend spoke. Then God spoke, “And it was [so], that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me [the thing that is] right, as my servant Job [hath].” (42:7) I could really relate to how Job must have been feeling and then God says (about the friends), “ye have not spoken for me.” I realized as I read this we must be careful of the words we allow to penetrate our mindset, not everyone who is labeled friend has our best interest at heart, and not everyone in our “circle” listens to God. God has been cleaning out my circle. This morning it clicked with one person as I heard the Lord speaking, let that drama go. She doesn’t speak for Me or over you. Peace daughter, pray for her and move on. He is making my circle small for a reason, I’m okay with that. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
