Whoever receives his testimony sets his seal to this, that God is true.
- John 3:33
I was insulted this morning. Pretty cutting really. Hit me at the core.
But, no one said it was going to be easy.
The single best thing I can do is let it go and choose love.
What good does it serve us to hang onto unfounded criticism and insults?
Zero. Zilch. Nada.
The devil wants you to hang onto hate.
The devil wants you to wallow in that righteous anger.
But, righteous anger will slowly erode into an ulcer of bitterness keeping you prisoner each and every day.
God calls us to love. With that love, we gain freedom.
Lean into this: God is true, God is love. Love back, leave hate behind; there is enough of that in the world.
Smile in the face of your insulters and pray and love on them.
Be silent and let God do the work.
Take a close look at Jesus’s behavior during his mock trial and crucifixion... strength, quietness, stillness; always looking to the Lord, and to those who loved Him.
There is too much good work to be done, and love to spread for those who hate to be a drag as you take flight.
TODAY: Stay strong people! God wins... oh, guess what... God is in us! Onward!
