Don’t Pick the Wrong Fight – Your Arms are Too Short to Box with GOD

Just because you feel conviction or heat from something that a preacher says, doesn’t mean that they said it with you in mind. Give the benefit of the doubt. Sometimes the Word is just the Word, and the Holy Spirit is just the Holy Spirit. Let God be God and be humble. Feeling Conviction is not a reason to pick a fight with someone or harden your heart.

If you hate someone because they preach and do right and you’ve done wrong, you’re a murderer like Cain. That’s why God said if you hate your brother you are a murderer (1 John 3:15). It’s the same spirit as Cain killing Abel. It’s identical to the original spirit of murder.

Even if a preacher does have you in mind, if you feel conviction the best response is to search your heart and change, not put up your dukes. Putting up your dukes is dangerous because your arms are too short to box with God.

Balaam beat that donkey’s butt but the Angel was about to beat Him with an invisible sword. Don’t pick the wrong fight. Even if the preacher is a donkey, if it’s the Word of God – don’t fight.

The reason Balaam was so ignorant is because he heard what God said, but he rejected Gods heart. Try to understand Gods heart, and be soft-hearted to the Word of God. (Numbers 22:22-27).
