Don’t be surprised when God blesses you if everybody doesn’t celebrate you. Some people can’t handle your success. Instead of getting upset with them, remember that opposition is a sign that God has something greater, something that you haven’t seen.
One peacemaker is more powerful than a dozen people that want to argue. When you’re a peacemaker, God breathes on your life.
We fight too many battles that don’t matter. If that battle is not between you and your destiny, then it’s a distraction. You have to learn to let things go.
We have enough weaknesses of our own to deal with. We don’t have time to judge somebody else for their weaknesses.
You may think your dream could never work out; it feels like you’re stuck. God is saying, “You’re right on schedule. You’re not a finished product. I’m still working on you. What I started, I’m going to bring to completion.”
We’re not going to understand everything that happens. God can see the end from the beginning. Sometimes, He has to take you backward to go forward. He has to dig down deep so He can get you prepared for how high He’s taking you.
The messy places, the delays, the things you don’t understand, even the mistakes you’ve made can’t stop your destiny. God’s already taken everything into account.
If there are things that are holding you back, things that are out of place, things that are messy, that means you’re still under construction. Don’t get discouraged. God is still working. What He started, He’s going to finish.
What God has planned for you does not end in defeat, in failure, in mediocrity, in addiction, in dysfunction. Your story ends in victory.
Don’t let mediocrity become the norm. That may be where you are, but that’s not who you are. You are a child of the Most High God.
