Capable of Blessing?

The other day I did something I ever rarely do.
I emailed five friends 
and asked them for prayer 
concerning some pressing issues 
my family and I are facing.

It was revealed to me that out of the five, 
at least one had made some assumptions 
and passed judgment on us 
(hence my reluctance to 
ever ask for prayer to begin with).

Job called his friends who did this to him
 “miserable comforters”.

Thinking about this situation begs two questions.

First, is our perspective of God 
(despite all that Jesus has accomplished)
 still so warped
 that we see Him first or only as
 "The Punisher"?

And second, 
are we, as humans, 
truly incapable of simply 
asking God to
 bless our fellow man
 without first making assumptions 
or passing judgments?

I mean…seriously?

  1. I've had to learn that lesson the hard way too. I'd rather have one friend with a heart filled with the revelation of God's goodness stand with me in prayer than 10 friends who still have a religion but no relationship. I declare over your family that you will see the goodness of The Lord in the land of the living. xo


Thank you so much for stopping by.
I would love to hear from you, so leave a comment!
And have a specially blessed day!
