God has some difficult commands in His word. Let’s look at a few.

Matthew 5:44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,

Psalm 37:1 Don’t be angry because of those who do evil, do not be jealous because of those who commit iniquity.

Ephesians 4:32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.

Depending on the circumstance, these are some difficult things to do on a consistent basis. It’s pretty hard to truly love someone who’s hurt us to the core or not be envious of someone’s success, knowing how they treated others.

We were never meant to fulfill these commands in our own strength. We were always meant to rely on the help of the Holy Spirit.

When a crooked boss looks over all our hard work and promotes someone else, we need to look to God and ask for help to love that person. When an ex-spouse is attempting to defame our character in front of our children, we need to ask God for help on being kind to them.

Nothing will successfully be done for an extended period of time without the help of the Holy Spirit. Look to God for help in difficult situations.

John 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.
