Conflicts are inevitable. Conflicts are disagreements and they could happen between any one:

Husband and wives, siblings, co-workers, family members, neighbours, business partners, relatives, tribes, nations etc

Saul was after David with an intent to kill him. 1st Sam 25

 

God used Abigail to save the situation and saved David from being a murderer. Sometimes when there is a conflict we pretend there is none we refuse
to act even when we know we can do something about it. Abigail didn’t do that she faced the conflict head on. When we have conflicts and don’t
resolve them satisfactorily it could sometimes affects our destiny.

When Abigail talked about an enduring house she was expecting that the promise of God to make David a king will not only be with David but will pass
onto His children, because that was what God had promised.

 

Matthew 5:23-25, Matthew 5:9

 

When we have issues with people and we resolve them, we are only demonstrating who we are in Christ Jesus as children of God. If as a nation certain
issue of conflicts are dealt with properly, we would find ourselves in a better place. God wants us to be peace makers rather than people who escalate
matters. Luke 6:27-30

 

Let your enemies bring out the best in you and not the worst. When someone takes advantage of you use the occasion to practice the servant’s life.
When God tells us to make peace with others he knows it’s not easy that’s why he gives us the Holy Spirit. Let’s live our lives like Abigail who
is a good example. Let’s be peace makers and resolve every form of conflict that arises. Let’s not create problems that affect our destiny. Let’s
not create situations that will affect the promises that God has made for us in the future.
