Take A Look At Yourself

Dearly Beloved,

Don’t let the opinions of others consume you. Life is too short to let your circumstances and opinions of others determine your joy. Don’t be moved by what somebody else, even if it’s a relative thinks that you should do or become. Be directed and be led by the Holy Ghost. You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood and you are peculiar! Be consumed but God’s truth instead of people’s opinions. The Glory of God is embedded right inside you! You were bought with a price. You are not ordinary.

It doesn’t matter what you see now. It doesn’t matter how your parents and those around you see you. It doesn’t matter how your spouse sees and perceive you, believe God’s opinion about you over anyone else’s opinion. Follow God’s path not the crowd. Take a look at yourself and see what path you are on and what condition it’s in. Think with the heart, take a look at yourself and see how lucky you really are.

Why should the opinion of the one person who doesn’t like you be much more powerful than the opinions of the dozens that do? Why should the opinion of others who doesn’t know you be much more powerful than the opinion of your creator and His Word concerning you? Take a look at yourself in His Word. Let the Word of God be your mirror.

It doesn’t matter who hates you, it doesn’t matter how you got to this street of life where you are at right now, it doesn’t matter how you got to that “Egyptian prison”, your past doesn’t define who you are.

Joseph was hated because of the dream God gave him. Genesis 37:5 (CEV) says, “One day, Joseph told his brothers what he had dreamed, and they hated him even more”. Have you been wondering why people don’t like you? Take a look at yourself ask God if there is something you need to change. If you are on God’s soil and not yours, people will still hate you but that doesn’t change the glory of God for your latter days — they will always be greater.

Today is a new day and a gift from God for you to do what is right. It doesn’t matter who hates you, it doesn’t matter how you got to this street of life where you are at right now, it doesn’t matter how you got to that “Egyptian prison”, your past doesn’t define who you are. Choose to move forward choose to follow Christ. Your past is forgiven and no longer holds any weight against you. Let today be the start of a new path. Let today be a day of joy. Take a look at yourself through the eyes of God, and you will see that YOU’RE DIFFERENT, YOU’RE PECULIAR and YOU’RE SPECIAL.

In Him,
~Ali Papa.
