Everyone has an opinion. Even more narrowly so, everyone has an opinion of you. If you let it, that idea can drive you crazy. It isn’t always necessary to know what people think, because everyone has, and is entitled to their own opinion about everything.
However, there will always be someone to share an opinion that was never asked for. There will never be a shortage of people locked and loaded, ready to rain on your parade, or at the very least, throw some unwanted shade. These are the people who are committed to keeping you down, and tearing down your dream. They may claim to be your friend, or may even be your closest family, but they are sent to you to try to get you off your course. Whether they realize it or not, they have been given the assignment to keep you from accomplishing your purpose.
My friend. They are on their job, but it’s on YOU to maintain your resolve. It’s on YOU to keep pushing forward. It’s on YOU to hold on to your faith and trust in God to help you get to your destiny. It’s on YOU. Regardless of anyone’s opinion, you have been given a divine assignment, you have to see it through.
Don’t listen to what people say, they don’t know about what you have seen. It’s obvious that they can’t handle your vision, nor can they understand your purpose; and that’s ok. Naysayers, haters, and purpose drainers don’t have to be convinced. The doubters, the cynics, and the opinionated don’t ever have to be persuaded. God has empowered you to make it happen, and HIS opinion is the only one that matters.
So put THEM out your mind, because THEY don’t know. THEY don’t know that God has prepared you for this moment and this season. THEY don’t know that He has already worked out your victory. THEY don’t know that the only thing that can stop you is YOU. So at the end of the day, it’s really all about who YOU will believe!
“How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him … “ 1 Kings 18:21b-c, New American Standard Bible
