When a man's ways are pleasing to the Lord,
he makes even his enemies live at peace with him.
FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, why are you disturbed by the words of those around you? Even though others at times misunderstand Me, your job is to follow Me in obedience. Be a God pleaser, not a people pleaser. Trusting Me brings sweet release.
A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Just when I think there is no hope for peace, You remind me that You are the great peacemaker. When others discredit me, threaten my peace of mind, or push me to despair, You draw me close. I can live only to please You, Lord. Dealing with my enemies is Your job.
If we spent as much time in front of God's mirror as we do our own, pleasing others wouldn't be an issue.
