God Blessed Morning Family!
We tend to place value in the words of others specifically what they say about us in a positive or negative light. Words are powerful for they tell the universe our desires in which we want to manifest. Don't place to much value in the words of others for in one breath they will praise you and lift you up and in next breath they will tear you down in an effort to bring about doubt and shatter your positive opinion of yourself. Trust only in the Word of God and your thoughts and opinions about yourself as well as others will never go astray and become hurtful and damaging. No one is void of the negative or positive opinion of others but you should not take their words for face value for they can turn on you at anytime. For the disciples left their homes and families and followed Jesus. They praised His every step up until they betrayed Him in the city of Jerusalem. When questioned by the soldiers they had nothing favorable to say about Him. Their words did not change who Jesus was or what He came to do for us. Although their words evoked energy which was hurtful and disconcerting to Jesus they could not change the way God felt about Him nor His purpose for His actions always remained favorable unto us. "Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me." Psalms 119:133 Never allow the words of man to feed your ego nor tear down your self-esteem. For you will always remain a Child of God no matter what they say about you for the only words that hold any value in your Life will always be the Words of God. Be Still And Know That I Am. Amen. Hallelujah.
