Have you ever found someone – maybe even close to you – say or ask you these things:
“Yeah, I mean it sounds great, but are you sure you can do this?”
“That’s a nice idea, but maybe you should try something else.”
“I don’t think that’s really for you to be honest.”
“Do you really think that will work? I’m just looking out for you, why won’t you listen to me?”
Uh, hello?? I’m not listening to you because you’re trying to rain on my parade.
Don’t let other people dictate what is and isn’t best for you. (Especially when you know it’s God’s plan for you). That’s the Holy Spirit’s job and I’m quite sure (100% sure actually lol) that He isn’t out of business.
Of course, you can ask for their opinion or even advice, because that person may have a good idea or input towards that thing you want to do. But once you hear the negativity coming out of their mouth you just know that you don’t have to listen to that. Just tell them “Hey, thanks but no thanks.”
I know that I can do anything I set my mind to because God’s ability is at work in me.
If it’s not helpful or aligning with what God’s Word has said about you and the things concerning you then you don’t need that kind of information/advice/input.
Let’s see what the Bible says actually…
“Commit your works to the Lord [submit and trust them to Him], And your plans will succeed [if you respond to His will and guidance].”– Proverbs 16:3
So, as you can see, as long as you trust God, put your faith in Him and come to Him with your hearts desires, ‘your plans will succeed’. It doesn’t matter what anyone else has to say about the situation as God’s word is your ultimate guide and counsel.
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”– Psalm 119:105
Also, remember not to rain on anyone else’s parade, there’s enough success to go around. This is the year of spreading so let us help each other when we can to spread like never before. You are blessed to be a blessing.
Go beyond the limits and start a total take over. Everything belongs to you. God told Abraham that He would make him and his seed great. [Genesis 12:1-3] And WE are the seed of Abraham. When you accept Jesus Christ as the Lord of your life, all that God promised Abraham, He promised you too as Abraham’s seed.
“And if you belong to Christ [if you are in Him], then you are Abraham’s descendants, and [spiritual] heirs according to [God’s] promise.”– Galatians 3:29
Whether you want to be a doctor or you’re an aspiring artist/musician. Whether blogging is your passion or fashion is where it’s at. Maybe law is your thing or teaching. You might even have an idea that’s totally brand new – Whatever it is you want to do, or have started doing – be the best, because you ARE the best.
Start working towards your goals in life with the Holy Spirit as your guide and tell the haters to either change their attitude and join you or step aside!
I know that there’s no room for negativity in my life.
You know, sometimes people may really believe they are looking out for you. Just tell them not to worry. We already have someone looking out for us and He’s already told us what we’re capable of.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”– Philippians 4:13
