Insights From Linda
When To Give Advice and When Not To
As a minister I’ve seen many people healed, set free and even on to their own ministries. I’ve learned along the way how to stay free from the heavy burden’s of other people’s problems and that was a huge help in me not getting “burned out.” But, now I have another piece of information I’d like to share with you.
See, our job as ministers is to teach the truth. We can water, and plant, but God gives the increase, and that includes getting revelation, healing and deliverance. We are to “do” the Word… that means for me as a minister, to love those I minister to, to be patient and kind and to live according to the Word of God. And as we do that we impact other people’s lives by being examples so that God can bring that person to their knees, to repentance and change.
2 Timothy 2:24-26 says, “And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.”
So the question is, when do we give advice? I’ll answer it this way, always give the truth of the Word of God and encourage them seek out what they need from the Lord. Each of us, who are Christians, have the Holy Spirit to lead, guide and direct. And if a person is having a hard time hearing from God, then pray for them for their eyes to be open.
Acts 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
I heard this quoted on a movie that just came out, "I don't give advice I give my opinion." I really like that!
