The Voice of Action

Jesus told us in Matthew 7 that we would know others by their fruit.

That is the fruit of their actions.

Actions speak louder than words, but we must give it time to do so.

Often, we tend to believe the voice of words without giving the voice of action time to show itself.

Words can appear believable, but the voice of action will not deceive you.

We are living in a culture where deceit and narcissistic manipulation is rampant.

Jesus knew we would face this and He loves us so much He left us the antidote.

Walk with discernment.

Pay attention to the fruit coming from a person’s actions and don’t just take what they say at face value.

Believe God when He shows you those words or actions might be deceptive and non-congruent.

He hears and sees things you don’t and He is protecting your heart.

You were never created to be manipulated with words or abused with actions.

Any advice given to you to adapt better to abusive behavior is not from the Lord.

The Lord says in 2 Timothy 3:5, to have nothing to do with those who show abusive non-congruent behavior.

Pretty strong words coming from the God of love. Sometimes you need to love others from a distance and walk away with the lesson learned.

If you have been stung because someone’s actions and words were not walking together in truth, take the time to heal.

Then, get back out there and be the conduit of love God has called you to be.

1 John 3:18 “Let us not love with words or speech, but with actions and in truth.”

Never allow what they did to you to be greater than what Jesus did for you. -

I believe in you,

Love Barbie
