“When people give you their opinions, remember who is God,” the Holy Spirit who dwells inside His followers told me.
People both friends and strangers, loved ones and enemies, all sorts of people may give us their opinions about our lives including when we’re in the process of making really big decisions, and we absolutely must remember JESUS CHRIST IS LORD! Not them. Not us. He is!
No matter how well-meaning people may be when they share their opinions with us, we need to live our lives according to the will of the Lord for the glory of the Lord and measure their opinions against God’s will. If their opinions don’t line up with His will, we need to let their opinions go no matter what they may think of us or what they may say or do in response to our decision to honor the Lord.
It can be really tough at times to deal with people’s reactions when we choose the Lord’s will instead of their opinions when their opinions don’t line up with the Lord and His will for us. But the one we were created to humble ourselves before and to live for and to love, honor, please, adore, revere, serve, worship, and glorify and the one to whom we will give an account is Jesus forever Lord!
Live for Christ! Amen!
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2
