No matter our profession or purpose in life, there will always be naysayers. Reading the book of Jeremiah, my husband and I were surprised by how many times he had to stand up to false teachers.
Importantly, help and comfort can be ours when we encounter difficult situations. We must realize the difference between God’s mercy and grace and the worldly-minded naysayer. When put on a balance, God is much “weightier”. Who’s opinion really matters most?
Basking in the comfort that comes from understanding God’s character, we begin to withdraw from the war and receive His help. There is no conflict when we are confident in His favor!
Psalm 89:14-17 (ESV)-
– Teresa #strength #salvation #turntome #Seekingyourface
14 O God, insolent men have risen up against me;
a band of ruthless men seeks my life,
and they do not set you before them.
15 But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.
16 Turn to me and be gracious to me;
give your strength to your servant,
and save the son of your maidservant.
17 Show me a sign of your favor,
that those who hate me may see and be put to shame
because you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.
