Have you had folk come against you, fun of you and rip your name to shreds? King Saul in the Bible had people come against him. They were making fun of him. He could have easily become distracted and lost his focus. He could have defended himself saying, “I’m the leader. I have what it takes.” But what did he do? He kept silent. One translation says, “He paid them no mind.”

In my life I have had to deal with those naysayers in and out of the , but I had to stay focused and pay them no mind. Sometimes that’s what you have to do when people are coming against you. You have to realise that some people are just jealous or driven by the enemy. Not everyone is going to have your best interests at heart. But don’t let them your destiny. Don’t let them distract you from God’s best.

, instead of playing up to people or trying to win over all your critics, gossipers and evil surmises, keep your eyes focused on what God has for you. Spend with people who see what God is doing in you. Focus on those who celebrate you. Ignore those critics so you can be all that God has called you to be. Hallelujah!

“But some scoundrels said, ‘how can this fellow save ?’ They despised him and brought him no gifts. But Saul kept silent.”

(1 Samuel 10:27, NIV)?

Pray With Me
Yahweh, today I keep my and mind focused on You no matter what is said about me. , I will ignore the naysayers, gossipers and evil surmises and turn away from voices. God, I declare by that I will accomplish the plan You have for me, as I daily put Your voice and will first in everything that I do, in ’ Name! Amen

    Great thoughts, but surprised and disappointed by the photo of a bare breasted woman on a Godinterest post. I expect it from the world, but please, this should be a safe place.
