Nobody likes to be taken advantage of...yet sometimes we willingly allow ourselves to be used.
Let me explain...
The enemy of our soul is so cunning and crafty that it's not always obvious in the beginning how he is scheming in our life. We find ourselves in certain situations and immediately start reacting. (Believe me; I'm speaking from experience on this one!)
Most of the time if we will stop reacting and take a look at the situation with our spiritual eyes, not the eyes of our flesh that are SCREAMING at us, then we will see that things are not as they appear. There is usually a lot more going on behind the scenes.
One of the biggest areas of deception is the enemy whispering lies in our ear and us believing them as truth. May I remind us that Revelation 12:10 tells us that he is the accuser of the brethren? He LOVES to put thoughts in our mind about someone else and then we start perceiving their actions with these thoughts... these untrue thoughts.
I don't know about you, but I'm tired of being used
so let's not be... :)
