I am learning in this season that everyone has an opinion about everything and there needs to be a standard.
In the words of Steve Maraboli ““How would your life be different if…You stopped allowing other people to dilute or poison your day with their words or opinions? Let today be the day…You stand strong in the truth of your beauty and journey through your day without attachment to the validation of others”
So what if they call you fat or too skinny? Is this the counsel of God concerning you?
See the Bible says, you are wonderfully and fearfully made(psalm 139:14).
The bible says you have the Holy Ghost living inside of you who gives the final counsel.
Please let us get back to that place where the Bible has the final say. where you are not perturbed because of what Aunty A or B has said. Our confidence should be in Jesus and His word. Let us like Paul begin to think that “For am I now trying to win the favor of people, or God? Or am I striving to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a slave of Christ”.
The bible says you are loved. The bible says you are Blessed. The Bible says that God has good plans for you.
Romans 5:But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us.(AMP)
Ephesians 1: May blessing (praise, laudation, and eulogy) be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) Who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual (given by the Holy Spirit) blessing in the heavenly realm!(AMP)
You are blessed and loved by God unconditionally
you are loved,
