What Have you Been Entertaining?
Melissa—Recently I was driving and praying, minding my own business, when all of a sudden I clearly hear, “You have been entertaining things that have shaped your life and belief system.” Well, I instantly knew this was big and the Holy Spirit had just put His finger on something that has been a big hindrance in my life. When I got home I looked up the definition of ‘entertain’ and here’s what it says: “to show hospitality to, to hold in the mind; harbor; cherish, to receive and take into consideration, to have as a guest.” I knew what entertain meant but this was a whole new perspective. He was saying, “You have shown hospitality to things that have shaped your life.” “You have harbored things that have shaped your belief system.” “You have cherished things that have shaped who you are.” He wasn’t talking about the good things. For the Holy Spirit to make that clear in this moment, especially when I have been asking Him to give me insight and understanding, I knew He was revealing hidden things that needed to be dealt with.
