Merriam Webster dictionary definition for proactive is acting in anticipation of future problems, needs, or changes.
As a child of God, we can proactively debate conflict by:
Calling on the name of Jesus
Seeking the Holy Spirit’s guidance on how to respond
Stop relying of our self-strength to fight our battles
Before responding take a deep breathe (breath in Jesus and breath out His response).
“Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers” (Psalm 1:1 NIV).
