"The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? Psalm 118:6
OUR CHALLENGE TODAY!
You know that you have heard from God, and now people aren't going to be happy, you have always treated them with the utmost respect and dignity, but now God is asking you to do what He wants, and it just don't fit their plans. Has this ever happened to you? The first thing to remember is, God is on your side when you do as He says, and what is pleasing to Him. Remember God is first, and He will see you through! No need to fear what others may say or think to say, just obey.
1Samuel 15:22 tells us the importance of obeying God and not fearing man, "And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams." We will never please everyone, some people just can't handle that, what's most important in our life is that we please God! If God tells you something, and somebody doesn't like it, just remember God desires your obedience above all else and He will deal with the dissatisfied! Fret not, God has your back!
“What shall we say then to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
THIS DAY IN DEVOTION:
God is for us, let’s seek to please him!
