This week’s blog posts will be sharing excerpts from the book, A Walk in the Wilderness: The Spiritual Discipline of Fasting.
pg 25 — “To not talk about or address any evil done to you by a parent, or a spouse, or a person in a position of authority — even a pastor; by saying that it wouldn’t honor that person, is really (no matter how spiritual it may sound) just producing a codependency with evil. You will know if you have built a codependency with evil, because it will disturb you — sometimes deeply. God has called us to peace; not torment.
Romans 12:18 — If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
During times of fasting, the Lord gave me deeper understanding in this area. Now, my position is always to step back from any relationship that is hurtful or dangerous (be it emotionally or physically dangerous) until someone decides where their treasure is.
Luke 12:34 — For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
