Good morning Beautiful! How many times has someone said something about you, your dreams, or your destiny, and it’s caused you to stop – or maybe even pause what you were doing?
What others have to say sometimes has more weight than it needs to in our lives. When that happens it’s time to recalibrate and realize that when you are pursuing the purpose God has for you, your success is going to be counter to their story about you. What other people say really doesn’t matter at all. Keep being excellent, because God will ALWAYS have the last word.
God has created only ONE of you in this world.
If you are so unique in your creation, wouldn’t it also be true that what God has for you to accomplish in life is also unique? The way He develops your gifts and uniqueness is also specific to you. He knows your innermost thoughts, the word says – He knows, because He made you…and you are one of a kind!
If you fully realize this, you can step back from the battle of managing other people’s opinions of you. When you go home at night, it’s you and God – and it pays to live for Him and not the opinions of others.
People may not be happy about you and your obedience, your continued pursuit of excellence, your surrender or your decision to try a new way, so get free now by simply knowing that you’re living out God’s will for your life, and as long as that’s happening, that should be their only concern. And then – get about your business, be excellent and keep it moving.
Foundational Scripture for Today: “For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.”
