"Where is your brother?"

A dear friend recently posted this truthful statement from Oswald Chambers..."When we can imagine our worst enemy forever alive in the new creation, adoring God along side us, then we can begin to say we have loved like Christ."

It is truth, but from that beginning we can see our way to an even greater realization of consecration. 

 And to go a little farther down the road that He has us on. There is a beauty and freedom in coming to a place of rest and trust that has no 'worst enemy." I think the presence of a 'worst enemy' in our hearts, is the dark crevice of a yet remaining, teeny tiny spot of self-righteousness. "I am better than that person and that is why I can hold them in contempt." It is in this crevice that demons drive their nail and hook their rope to climb back into your life and set up their mini-throne. It is from this tiny spot, that they grab a mega phone and begin calling out fear, threat and intimidation. Powerless, but sounding powerful, their one focus is to hinder your fellowship with the Most High God. When God reveals this truth to you, repent and release this person from your fleshly judgment and listen for the astounding beauty of the clear voice of the ONE who at great cost loves you with an everlasting love, and listen for one more sound, the teeny tiny sound of a nail and a rope falling from a high place into the dust. Isaiah 54:1 "Shout for joy, O barren one, you who have borne no child; Break forth into joyful shouting and cry aloud, you who have not travailed; For the sons of the desolate one will be more numerous Than the sons of the married woman," says the LORD.
