Today’s Topic: Don’t Let Anyone Stop You
Today’s Scripture: We speak, not as [if we were trying] to please people [to gain power and popularity], but to please God who
examines our hearts [expecting our best].
– 1 Thessalonians 2:4 (AMP)
Have you ever noticed that some of the
most difficult resistance can come from
the people closest to you? Longtime
friends, trusted colleagues, and even
family members can be the first people to
discourage you when you begin to tell them
about the decisions you’re making for God.
These people aren’t necessarily bad, but
they can be a bad influence in your life if
you allow them to hold you back from God’s
best. Sadly, if people aren’t ready to move
forward themselves, they often try to hold
us back in order to feel better about their own lack of initiative.
Don’t let others keep you from receiving
the new things God has for you. Don’t let
their accusation or rejection determine your
decisions. Pray for them, love them, but
don’t let them hold you back from God’s
Prayer Starter: Lord, whatever You have
for me-a new plan for better health, a new
mindset, a new attitude, a new relationship.,
a new boldness, a new career-please help
me to move ahead with perseverance
and determination. Help me keep going
forward, no matter what, amen.
