NEGATIVE INHERITANCE: RECEIVING FROM OTHER PEOPLE’S WILL
BY MARK EDGEMON

It’s the negative things in life that shape us more often than the positive. Without processing the negative experiences out of our lives, the negatives lodge in our spirit and causes us not to face the fears, that the negative experiences created.

During the earliest years of our lives, the sins of our parents or guardians are imprinted upon our spirit and often like a recording, they play back when we become adults.

We are attacked all of our lives, whether the people we encounter meant to harm us or if they were just experiencing their own problems and by association with them, these injuries lodge in our souls and without removing them, become a part of our decision making, determining how we act and react in life.

And…as if we don’t have enough trouble…there is the devil, who exploits every evil to turn us away from God.

This is why Jesus refers to salvation as a rebirth or being born again. If a soul truly surrenders the control of his life to God, he is reborn to start fresh, spending the rest of his life seeking and serving God.

Then…he sanctifies or cleans his soul, by receiving each truth given to him by The Holy Spirit and prays through it, until he has the confidence to act on it. As this happens over and over again, we get stronger and closer to God.

Like light dispels darkness, Truth replaces lies and the negatives are removed. The more Truths we receive, the more we share the character of God and the more accessible He is to us, because we are more like Him.

To understand Truth…is to live it and when you live it…you have peace.
