"But the Lord is with me like a mighty warrior; so my persecutors will stumble and not prevail. They will fail and be thoroughly disgraced; their dishonor will never be forgotten." – Jeremiah 20:11 NIV
I just wanted to encourage you if you're having tough times when it comes to relationships with people. Human beings are so complicated and mean. Some of them will try to bring you down just because they feel bad about themselves or because they think being a villain is cool. They will hate you because you are not the sheep they wished you were or simply because your beautiful spirit annoys their demon.
Don't let their negativity take the best of you; don't even let their words reach you. I understand it can be hard not to care when people try to hurt your inner self and feelings but you are not alone to fight this.
The Lord has got your back. He said we would be persecuted because we adore him therefore you need to stay ready, for the enemy will send people to turn you from God's path. They will make you feel uncomfortable, laugh at you, mock you, judge you, but in Jesus' name it will not affect you. These people don't know who you truly are. Do you? So why do you care so much about the opinion of strangers?
Let me tell you how I see it. As God's creation and born-again child, if you attack me, you attack the Lord and I wish you the best of luck with that... God is our warrior and our enemies will be taken care of.
"For I am withou, and no one is going to attack and harm you, because I have many people in this city.” – Acts 18:1
This is one of my favorite verses and honestly when I read this, I feel blessed and protected. Well, I hope you do too on this beautiful day. Be strong and take heart for this week could be uplifting and special for you!
