The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest. (Exodus 14:14, AMP)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
In life, were always going to have critics. Well always have difficult people who try to upset us and steal our peace and joy. But, you dont have to respond to every critic. You can decide to take the high road and let God fight your battles for you.
Sometimes, no matter what you say or do, there are people who arent going to accept you. They just dont want to be at peace with you. In fact, when Jesus sent out His disciples to certain homes, He told them to always speak peace over those homes. And then He said in effect, If they dont receive the peace that youre offering, then it will come back to you. That tells me that if you will do your best to be at peace with people, even if they wont take your peace, that peace will just come back to you. Youll not only get your peace, but youll get their share as well! Thats double for your trouble! When you do the right thing no matter what is happening, God sees it and rewards it.
A Prayer for Today
Father in heaven, I choose to hold my peace. I choose to do the right thing even when the wrong thing is happening. I trust that You are fighting my battles for me. I give You all the honor and praise in Jesus name. Amen.
