Conflict and strife always come between two people who are trying to prove they are right in a matter. Trying to insist that you are right or striving to prove that you are right, either to yourself or to someone else, causes unbridled strife in your life. Consequently, you become stressed in your body and mind. You are always trying to convince yourself or trying to convince someone else that you are the person who is right, that you are the person who has the most control in the matter, you are the smartest, the wisest, the most creative, the most respectful, the most popular, the best informed, the most knowledgeable or the most godly. My true children have learned that striving to be right all the time creates conflict and strife in their own life as well as the lives of other people. The people who insist on always being right never enter into My kingdom living while in the earth. (Romans 15:1-2)
My instructions to My children primarily through Jesus is that the meek inherit My kingdom while in the earth. (Matthew 5:5) To be meek is to be pliable, fluid, like a willow tree, bending with the wind instead of being rigid and immovable. To be meek means to always respect the opinions of others, always allowing other people to have their own beliefs about things without your correcting them with religious, political, social or cultural standards.
Also to be meek is to refuse to judge anyone for anything, their actions, their beliefs, their cultural and racial differences, their opinions, their dress, their hair styles, their religious practices, their sexual preferences or anything that identies them with their religious or political beliefs. (Romans 12:9-10) Thei practices and habits always come from their parental tutoring, their cultural customs, their religious tutoring or their political narrowness. You must respect that they are products of their heritage as well as their environmental teachings, just like you are. If you don't want to be judged, then you must not judge others because I warned you through Jesus that judging others always reverberates back to judgment upon you. This principle is why I teach My children to be meek, always mild and flexible in their treatment of other people, looking upon other people as better than themselves. (Philippians 2:1-12)
You must understand that your enemy, the devil, uses religious and political differences to cause you to judge someone. My mode of operation is for you to forgive other people for their beliefs which do not reflect yours. You are probably inaccurate about another belief which that person has had revealed to him or her.
My Holy Spirit said through Jesus, through Paul, through James and through Peter that you must strive to consider other people better than yourself, their beliefs perfect for themselves at the time, their religions and political views as being their right to believe what they are programmed to believe. (Matthew 5:38-48) In order to avoid strife and conflict, which cause stress in your life, you must listen to My Holy Spirit who will give you wisdom and insight into how for you to handle the temptation to judge others and in effect become in conflict with them. He will mirror in His teachings to you exactly what He taught through Jesus, that you should never consider yourself better than anyone else in thoughts, actions, beliefs or practices. If you do, then you are setting yourself up to be a judge and jury and you will be growing judgment in the devil's garden judgment for yourself. (Matthew 7:1-6)
To eliminate conflict and strife in your life, eliminate from your mind the thought that you are always right, thinking you always better in beliefs, customs, culture or actions that anyone else. Give honor and encouragement to everyone as better than yourself. Treat everyone as the apple of My eye and the apple of your eye. That's what I do with you when you are uninformed and judgmental. It is your own judgment of others that authorizes the devil to judge you.
Become meek and flexible in dealing with all of humanity. Forgive readily at the first hint of judgment which enters your mind. If you don't, if you feed the superiority that causes judgment, then you are signing the devil's decree of judgment because it will boomerang back upon you.
Meekness guarantees that you will inherit My kingdom while in the earth. I could not have made it more clear. Jesus died for the sins of everybody in the earth. Don't narrow down His sacrifice to only being for yourself.
Your Loving Father of Mercy
