Good morning! Happy Friday. This is the day that the Lord has made, CHOOSE to rejoice and be glad in it. There is so much to be grateful for and I choose to rejoice in the Lord today and forevermore.
TFTD: PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
Today I issue an important PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:
Everyone doesn’t want to see you happy and everyone will not support you and your goals!
I know you are sweet as pie, accomplished, active in your community, church, and family, you may even lead organizations, you are diligent in your studies, and have a good work ethic, but EVERYONE doesn’t care about that. Some people can’t stand the fact that you are doing well and please don’t have children who are doing well also because they can’t stand that either.
Some people will smile in your face and talk behind your back. They can’t stand seeing you do well. You may have a few people around you right now, that turn their noses up at you whenever you have something to say. HOW DARE YOU BE SO BLESSED!
We’ll I have great news for you: Those people who don’t care about you or who hate on you don’t matter. What matters is that God has called you to do great things and that blessing will flow over to your children. And those who love you will begin reaping the overflow from your blessing.
1 Peter 3:8-9 (NKJV)
8 Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tender-hearted, be courteous;[a] 9 not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing.
When people are mean and nasty to you, be nice to them. Bless people with kindness. When people hate on you, love on them. When people talk about you, pray for them. What God has for you, is for you and nothing they say or do can take that away from you.
James 1:17 (NKJV)
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
Every good and perfect gift comes from the LORD, so man can’t give or take away the things that God has for you.
RESPONSE TO THE HATERS, NAYSAYERS, DREAM KILLERS, DREAM STEALERS, IMPOSTERS, PEOPLE WHO SABOTAGE YOUR GOALS, etc.:
When they look at you and ask why do you get everything, why are you so blessed, why are you doing so much, simply say:
Romans 8:28 (NKJV)
28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
You are called for a purpose and God will make sure that all things work out for good. At the end of the day, God gets the glory. So don’t worry about what people say. Everyone can not and will not understand the calling on your life because they didn’t get the call, God gave it to you!
Have a blessed day knowing that God is working things out in your life for a divine purpose. Surround yourself with those people who will sharpen you and pray for those who try to dull your spirits.
Keep doing what God has called you to do!!! Have a wonderful weekend!
