The Exception Does Not Rule

The Exception Does Not Rule from Daily Bible Inspirations

Some people won’t swim in the ocean for fear of sharks.

They hear reports of shark attacks and, despite knowing that such attacks are by far the exception and not the rule, they still won’t go in.

Some people look at obedience to God this way.

we hear about the exceptions. Kate is such a good person, but the economy just bankrupted her. Jeremy ate right and exercised, but he was still taken by cancer. What’s the point of living right, when life can still treat you so unfairly?

these are the exceptions, not the rule. Most often, when you live for God, your life will be stable and prosperous. Just because this doesn’t happen for everyone shouldn’t be a reason not to try.

(The exception has no authority!)

Exceptions for Evil

“Oh it isn’t really evil, it isn’t good, it isn’t that bad.”

Excuses

“Good” Exceptions?

Those 7% who read the Bible everday, who at least routinely do so.

Now narrow that 7% (a guesstimation, from memory, of a sermon heard a few Sundays ago), by eliminating Legalists from the 7%.

This is my ‘new’ plumbline of trust in ANY relationship, primarily romantic ones. My new guage, my line-drawn-in-the-sand thing.

This is how trust will be established, based on how much you love the Word!

For someone said they love the Word, love bible Study…

Lead bible Study as a matter of fact.

Yet their actions showed they enjoyed the opportunity to dominate conversationly!

Angry at being interrupted for any reason.

Never apologizes for being wrong.

So now this person has begun weakening the Word itself!

Showing flawed faith, lack of.

Going down in flames fast, hasn’t repented for it yet!

For there is no humbleness, no regret, just grumbling/dislike of being called out!

i am/was angry at being subjected to such weak authority!

Kept asking Elohim why?!

Today He showed me how i am weak in my authority!

How i make excuses for evil! 😯😦🤔

When i continue an unequally yoked relationship!

i make excuses like,”Oh, well i remember my B.C.!”

or “They haven’t known You long; They don’t know You like i do; They haven’t felt Love, true Love, You; They obviously do not have a closer-relationship with You, etc.

It is not their fault, they don’t really know the full enormity of the situation, as i know i do not, i use to not understand things too! etc.

Timing is important.

Also, i wouldn’t react they way they are, even B.C.! (a ‘good’ exception!)

i must stop being Ahab, Saul even.

Passive, in this area. For THIS IS NOT MERCY!

i have allowed evil exceptions to rule over me!

i can be merciful in my reaction to the person who commited such a faux pau!

Yet, the consequences are still the same from Christ, regardless!

i just add myself to that list, making excuses for them, basically pleading their case.

A habit formed from abuse as a child…?

i am no longer a baby in Christ! Recognized such by others! Hallelujah! (i have graduated!) 😀

My 6th year! And it passed w/out me even celebrating it!

(Well i did leave Illinois at that time…)

My new criteria in ‘dating’, (since i give trust too easily) is bible study!

It will show & prove our incompatibility, quickly, in Yeshua’s holy name, amen!

i will learn to trust only those who enjoy it, with me, inshallah!

In Yeshua’s holy name, i pray. Amen.

Mercy

The Good Life from Daily Bible Inspirations
https://dailybible.co/p/Hke7az58km

Do you have a good life? Is your life fulfilling and satisfying? God lays out the steps to have a good life in today’s verse.

We are to let go of our vengeance and leave it to God.

Love Mercy

Mercy is choosing to not mete out what is deserved. We are to forgive people who don’t deserve it or ask for it. We are to give second chances to those who messed up. We are to see in everyone, a sinful, learning, child of God that needs mercy.

Currently working in/at a Ministry, in which i live.

House Manager is my title and Mercy is a reoccurring theme from the Holy Spirit lately.

Dealing with those who do not know how to live with others, who do not understand the importance of it…

May the Lord give us more blessings to help us achieve such, in Yeshua’s holy name, amen!

(Prayers for this Ministry are very much needed! 🙂 For it is so brand new, we do not even have a site yet!)

Holy Spirit keeps bringing to my mind Matthew 5:40

“If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. (from biblehub.com)

And i never deeply understood the verse so i studied it from

https://redeeminggod.com/sermons/luke/luke_6_29-30/

You say, “I don’t want to appear weak,” but I’ll tell you that it is only the strongest person who can take an insult and let it go.

(never actually thought about it like this, but yeah!)

(The) weak who retaliate, because they can’t take it. Only the strong roll with the punches

(Wow)

What shows more strength? Making your witty but cutting remark, or rebuilding a relationship?

(Yeshua advises) Stand up for yourselves, defy your masters, assert your humanity; but don’t answer the oppressor in kind. Find a new, third way that is neither cowardly submission nor violent.

When someone insults you, let them insult you again if it will bring peace.

(this one i am working on, meaning it is difficult) 🙂

Be someone who is willing to take the blows. Someone who refuses to retaliate. Someone who serves rather than slaps.

Now this i understand! Resonates with me.

If there really is a disagreement, and it’s hard to determine who is wrong and who is right, and what sort of restitution is necessary – be the bigger person, be the peacemaker and give them what they want. Give them more than what they want.

(There is a section i do not agree with (on the site) for it is against the Lord & they are not my enemy either)

He (Yeshua) is telling impoverished debtors, who have nothing left but the clothes on their backs, to use the system against itself.

God wants us to do everything within our power to restrain evil. But it is not our responsibility to retaliate.

sometimes, it is to your benefit spiritually to help the thief and give him what he wants and more.

When Jean Valjean is arrested by the police, the Bishop makes it appear that he gave the silverware to Jean, and gives him two silver candlesticks as well. It is this act of kindness that causes Jean Valjean to turn from a life of stealing to a life of helping other people.

All I’m saying is that if there is someone in your life or my life who genuinely has a need, Jesus says it is our responsibility to meet that need. Don’t let people rob you, but if they try to take things from you out of desperation, you might want to let them have what they want, and give them a little extra.

The issue is not property rights, but the enemy’s eternal life. Do not chase the thief to kill him. Chase him to save him

you should give generously to the one in need, even if he never pays you back (Deuteronomy 15:7-11).

Elohim says, “You give that person the resources he needs,and I will take care of your needs.”
