Have you ever been called dumb, stupid or maybe even an idiot? Maybe you’ve been told that you’ll never amount too much. Words can definitely impact your life. Just as positive things spoken about you can impact the way you see yourself, so can negative connotations.
You may find yourself living in difficult situations where frustration is the norm. You might be living in extreme poverty. You could even be struggling with finding employment, losing your home, struggling with addictions/health issues or having family strife. However, know that this does not define you!
See the thing is, as you walk towards God’s will in your life, things may not look good to those around you. You may even find yourself being the joke of those closest to you. But what you need to realize is that they simply don’t get it. They feel you need to live like they live. They want you doing things like they do. They want you to be like them.
Even though you may care about those around you, the hardest and most difficult thing to do is to follow God’s path for your life. Whether it makes sense to others or not, God has a specific purpose for your life. He knows exactly what He is doing and what you need to do in order to complete it. People are not always going to understand why you are doing what you are doing. They only can think about making money, buying material things, looking like the rest of the world. But we are not of this world. We may live in it but we are not of it. As a follower of Christ, we are called to be the light of the world.
During times like these, it is extremely important to remember who you are in Christ. As Isaiah 11:2 says:
“And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.”
When your life looks absolutely crazy and unbearable to others; sometimes even to ourselves…we must remember that God has a plan for us. While others are calling you stupid or dumb, what really matters is that you have the wisdom of God. One small touch of God’s grace in your life will make all your naysayers ask what the heck is going on.
God is the way, the truth, and the life. When He calls you for a specific purpose, it won’t matter what anyone else thinks. God is the alpha and omega; He knows the end from the beginning. So there is absolutely nothing that can happen to you without His knowledge. It is His knowledge, His grace, His love, His peace, His protection and His provision that will leave the rest wanting to know what you already know. This is true wisdom.
So while others have their fun at your expense, don’t let it bother you. For when God’s amazing grace comes rushing upon you in His perfect time…He will open the right doors, the right opportunities, and the right people to come upon your life that will leave everyone else around you with their mouths wide open in shock!
SO…GET READY FOR THE LORD ALMIGHTY’S
HAND TO COME UPON YOU!
He promises that it will be beyond anything you can ask or think! Praise the Lord for He Is Worthy to be praised!
