Dish-Washing Liquid — and The Fear of The LORD — 26 Comments

  1. I can absolutely relate! I was at grocery store and needed a sprig of parsley… why buy a whole .99 cent bunch right? Get cilantro and put a sprig of parsley in the cilantro.  Yup, I did it! One step, two steps…Holy Spirit check… But it was just a sprig… overwhelming sadness at my actions… Go back, but where did the sprig come from? Holy Spirit…” it doesn’t matter, it’s just a sprig…just do the right thing and buy a bunch,”. The relief that comes from being obedient…

  2. Upon leaving the store I noticed a makeup pencil had fallen in the bottom of my cart. As I was placing my items in my car I grabbed the pencil to return it. I ran into the store and gave it to the cashier. She took it not even making eye contact with me and threw it in a basket behind her. Did she not realize what I had just done . She didn’t care or know that I was in a relationship with Almighty God whom I choose to please everyday and it felt good

  3. Ugh… wrestling with this very thing myself this weekend.  I bought a used item online, told the seller later that I had to unexpectedly buy batteries for it, then was happy when he refunded the purchase price and allowed me to keep the item, since the batteries were expensive and he never said they were not included.  Just last night I was taking the box the item came in to the rubbish bin, when lo and behold… out rolled two little batteries.  Say something?  Don’t bother?  It is only a matter of $12 or so. He’d never know.  Then I read your article here.  Both I and the Lord knew and now the guilt was far outweighing the rationalizations.  So, this morning I sent the seller $12 in cash with a note explaining my mistake.

    And I feel so much better- so free and light. <3

    Thank you, Ms. Veronika.  Your humble act of obedience has been an inspiration far beyond your bottle of dish washing liquid.

  4. I think about the times I’ve gotten home without all the items I’ve been charged for on my tab. But no reason not to do the right thing. Could be a mistake but, if not, it’s on them and not me. Good for you! This reminds me of Joyce Meyer’s story about being convicted for not returning the grocery cart to the holding area in the parking lot. And for allowing all her kids to get in the check out lines with a coupon for a discount on chicken PER PERSON!

  5. Thank you, Veronica, your honestly is so appreciated.  I think we may all have one of these stories to tell.  Mine is called, The Humbling Lesson of the Stainless Steel Ice Cream Scooper.  I discovered it in my bag after arriving home.  Due to unforeseen circumstances it would be two weeks before I could get back to the store.  During that time tho, the Holy Spirit had His way with me and by the time He was done, I gladly went back to pay for it!

  6. This is the same thing that God is working in me this week. I was reading Jeremiah 17:1 how sin is engraved with a pen of iron, the point of a diamond it engraved the tablet of my heart and on the horns of my altars – everything that isn’t God honoring, people loving that are in my heart that just add dirt to my oil pour love relationship with God and also in my heart; if un-aware will lead me further and further. I am so thankful that Holy Spirit showed it to me and it just arrest me. Thank you for sharing this wonderful and powerful testimony.

  7. Hebrews 12:1 AMP
    Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who by faith have testified to the truth of God’s absolute faithfulness], stripping off every unnecessary weight and the sin which so easily and cleverly entangles us, let us run with endurance and active persistence the race that is set before us
    The little foxes are the ones who ruin the vine so it does not produce all it could, leaving foothold and handgrips for the enemy so he can easily knock you off the paths of righteousness and easily drag you out of the kingdom of God back into that old dead Adam and Eve nature that is the war, arming yourself with the mind and thoughts of Christ every day is our offensive weapon preempting the serpent’s attack

  8. Good beautiful Day Veronika.
    I love this post, thank you for the insight.
    I had a similar experience at the grocery store last week, I loaded my groceries and picked up my purse and, low and behold, hiding underneath was my husbands deli roast beef he’d requested for his sandwiches. This was more like $10.00, but I marched back into the store and paid the cashier.
    Your so right about the open doors sin creates, and the havoc it allows the enemy to wreek. I lost a daughter and watched as my family was pillaged while I indulged in the lowest of low. A toenail is all he needs, just a tiny bit at first, but when he’s done, he’s taken it all…and then some!!
    I can’t have my daughter back but as a result of walking for the past 7 1/2 years in obedience to Him, I’ve watched as He’s restored more than I could have ever imagined, and I’ve never lacked a thing.
    And I can now say, although the thief approaches, it’s okay, he has nothing in me.
    All the Glory goes to Him :)
    God bless you beautiful lady. :)

  9. Thank you, it seems as though there’s no fear of any authority, but it starts with the Holy fear of the Lord.

  10. Such a good word. I have been on. The Fear of the Lord for awhile. What great encouragement. Thank you

  11. Dear Veronika, Your transparency and humility are so appreciated. To share this experience the day after posting Father’s message to the Nations is quite refreshing. Thank you. We sense a move of God like never before. May we harken to His invitation to come closer and deeper into His presence and commissioning as intercessors.Amen.
