We all have people in our lives, who are hard to get along with. As we take the time to ponder on, the people in our lives with whom we frequently run into conflict . Maybe it is possible that Our Lord and Our Friend may have placed them in our paths to challenge our faith and to open our eyes, to areas in our lives, where we are not following Him.
Could it perhaps be that these people, we think are problem people, are not really problems, but God given opportunities for us all to grow.
Psalm 139 verse 23 & 24;
V23: “Search me Lord, and know my heart; test me and know my concern”.
V24: “See if there is any offensive way in me; lead me in the everlasting way”.
The central thing in our walk with Our Lord and Our Friend is not our knowledge of Him, but his knowledge about us all. He knows all about us, and He loves us too much, just to barge into our lives without an invitation.
Search me Lord, and know my heart is true.
