Right, Wrong and Observations

May 20, 2008

Sometimes things happen in life that just catch us by surprise. We might have an inkling of there being something there, but only an inkling. I was recently blindsided by some things. Yet, there are things that I was noticing beforehand…things that I just filed away in the back of my mind.

Isn’t life a lot like that? We see things and we file them away somewhere. Sometimes it is because we don’t want to believe that we are seeing what we think we might be seeing. It might be perceived as being possibly unpleasant…or even scary. It might have to do with us and we don’t want to see something about ourselves. It might have to do with others and, again, we don’t want to see it. It could also be simply that we don’t know what to make of what we see and so we wait it out looking for new/more information. There can be many reasons for filing things away instead of facing them.

We can also find ourselves in a position where we feel that we must do something. We can even seek wise counsel as to whether we are right in our thinking, or not. And even with prayer and thought and wise counsel…we can be wrong in our decision. Then again…we just might be right.

Opposition does not mean that we are wrong. In fact, in many instances it can be evidence that we are right! But how does one know? Opposition can come from those who do not want their covers pulled…to borrow a recovery phrase. Or it can come from those who truly are right and who are trying to show you that you are wrong. It can also come from the spiritual realm…which is where Yeshua/Jesus said that our true enemies are.

So, how do we know which is which? That can be so tricky. Open communication can really help, but sometimes, not everyone wants to be open. That could be a sign…but it isn’t necessarily. It can be so hard to know. That is why it is so important to show grace and mercy to one another. It is also why I keep praying for wisdom!
