When more than one person comes to you with words that were spoken from a naysayer. Let the naysayers nay say. They are used of the devil to distract you. The only way they can get to you is it your pride is wounded. I know what they say may hurt you. But it’s more your ego being wounded.
Jesus kept walking with the heavy cross on his shoulder as they screamed at him obscenities and all kinds of false accusations. He kept going to his final destination. If he lost his focus dropped the cross tried to defend himself Or took the time to retort or retaliate he never would I’ve made it to where he was supposed to be.
Recently it was continuously brought to my attention that there were people talking about me in a very negative way. The same people have talked about many others. They have their critical judgments and self-righteousness where they feel that I’m not good enough to do what I do. But all glean from what I’m doing. The enemy will use anything to stop you even your peers. I’ve prayed for better friends truer friends. But God wants me to be faithful to the ones I have now. There are times when you are more friend to someone then they are to you. You have to be ok with that. Let Jesus be your best friend so you can both laugh and what the devil is trying to use against you.
So if I get caught up in what they have to say I’m not doing what I have to do because I’m distracted and thinking of how it is I could defend myself.
When I was getting upset about the things I heard. I prayed God what is it and why is it they were saying these things. He showed me they are jealous and we’re not mature enough do you understand me. That I could continue to sow my seeds into their lives without taking any mind to their negativity.
Basically, I was to ignore them just like Jesus did when the crowd screaming at him. None of us have had the battles Jesus has had. So why should we gripe? It’s just like with a bully you have to ignore what they are doing for them to stop. When your focus is so forward what’s beside you if it’s not guiding you to where you need to be it needs to be ignored.
We are to cast our cares on the Lord so take what they say to the cross bring them to Gods attention. Take nothing they say personally. Be about the Lords business. When you do even your enemies will be at peace with you.
