Manna For Today: Tuesday, June 13, 2017
Isaiah 51:12 – The LORD says, “I am the one who comforts you. So why should you be afraid of people, who die? Why should you fear people who die like the grass?”
No matter what you are going through and what people may think or say about you, people are not your savior and what they think is not sustainable. They won’t last and their opinions won’t either. They are mortal or temporary in terms of existence here on earth and so are you. So it may not be good use of your time to be stuck on people’s criticisms.
The goal is to outlast your critics. Just because they said it doesn’t mean it’s right. Don’t cultivate a need for people’s approval; when you do so you are also cultivating a capacity for fear.
Get your approval from God; what He thinks and says is sustainable. Hear Him when He says, “I am the one who strengthens you.”
Remember, you are loved!
Peace and blessings!
