On the surface we see the truth of this wisdom and we can also relate to how difficult it may be to give – or to receive. When we take it into the realm of our relationship with Jesus Christ, however, we can take this advice deep into our spirit. In plain words, Jesus Christ will rebuke you, chastise you, close doors and even say “no” to your prayers and selfish desires. Jesus Christ is committed to removing all of the things in your life that are not good for you – that will hurt you, or lead you further away from Him. We do not always recognize this and grow frustrated or angry with Him; not caring to remember that He only wishes to take away that which will harm us. Satan, on the other hand, behaves in exactly the opposite manner. Satan will “kiss” you over and over as he works to convince you that WHATEVER you desire is good for you and that YOU know best what you need. Much like he did in the Garden of Eden. Pray to God for the ability to discern HIS voice.
