ARE YOU LETTING OTHER PEOPLE SING THEIR OWN UNIQUE SONG? Or are you trying to make them sing a song other than the song that the Lord wants them to sing? Are you trying to shape or mold people into what you want them to be, rather than asking the Lord what His plans and purposes are for their lives?
Sometimes we can allow our past experiences or unhealed areas of our souls to affect our opinions of other people and the paths that they should take in life. For example, maybe we made a bad financial decision in the past that had a negative impact, and we became convinced that everyone who is interested in pursuing an acting or musical career should first obtain a college degree in business. Perhaps receiving that kind of business training would be helpful for some people, but we shouldn’t blindly apply the same advice to everyone if the Lord is telling them to take a different path in life.
Ask the Lord to reveal if you are trying to persuade anyone in your life to take a path that is different than the path that the Lord has planned for them. Repent to the Lord, and apologize to people if you have been pressuring them to sing a song in life that is different than the one that the Lord wants them to sing. Invite the Lord to search your thoughts, emotions, and memories for any unhealed areas, and ask Him to transform and fill these parts of your being with His incredible love!
