I John 1:11 “But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.”
Hating your brother blinds you and doesn’t allow you to achieve your purpose. It removes you from the path of light and casts you into the broad way of darkness. It throws you into a state of confusion and leads you into the way of destruction. It limits your growth. It does not let you discover your purpose, nor complete your purpose.
Cain began to hate his brother after they both presented sacrifices to the Lord and his brother’s was accepted; but his wasn’t. He eventually killed his brother, was judged by God, and became a marked fugitive and vagabond in the earth (Genesis 4).
Cain should have put his pride aside and corrected himself. Getting it wrong the first time does not mean that you will never get it right, but darkness prevented him! Lack of wisdom did not let him get it right! Lack of understanding did not let him get it right! Lack of knowledge of God did not let him get it right!
I am 100% sure that Cain was not born to be a vagabond in the earth. His own actions made him a vagabond in the earth. Someone who wanders from place to place without any settled home. Someone who leads an unsettled and carefree life. Someone who has an uncertain or irregular course or direction.
Jeremiah 29:11 says that the thoughts the Lord thinks towards you are thoughts of peace, and not of evil, in order to give you an expected end. God has an expected end for you. It is that you will fulfill your purpose in life and make it to heaven. Do not let hatred of your sisters destroy this beautiful plan God has for you. Cain did it, but you do not have to be like him. You could learn from his mistakes and thank God that mercy is still working for you.
Are you struggling with uncertainty? Do you feel as if you do not know where you are going? Have you been having trouble putting your hands on your purpose? Do you feel that you are going around in circles? One reason for this could be hatred to someone. Therefore examine yourself and make the necessary corrections, and while you are doing this do not forget to pray.
Hear the voice of wisdom today. Let her guide you into the right way. She will never lead you astray.
Grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God
