Naysayers, Stop Hating and Being Envious. Have a Seat. Get It Together!

Uninvited GuestsToday I decided to step out of my comfort zone and dedicate a simple post to all the naysayers who never have nothing positive or encouraging to say. And would like to share a few words to encourage someone today.

We can become easily discouraged when faced with difficult situations. No matter how many times man says no, God’s yes is the final answer. God knows exactly what we are dealing with every day. He hears the prayers of the righteous. Whatever you’re believing God for, he will answer.

Sometimes to find peace of mind you have to remove yourself from things that serve no purpose. Naysayers, doubters, gossipers, haters are included. Let go of what doesn’t belong. Be at peace.

Naysayers to me are Negative Attitudes Yielding Senseless Attacks Yearning Exclusive Recognition; simply put. They are jealous for no reason. When you encounter someone who has too many reasons to complain about everything and can never see the good in anything, run! They will do everything in their power to make you just as miserable as they are. Remember, misery loves company.

People with negative attitudes serve no good purpose. If they don’t have anything positive to say. Stay away from them. Association brings assimilation. Be careful who you surround yourself with. People who constantly make the worst out of a good situation and focus too much on the negative are not ones you want to surround yourself with.

Pessimists will defeat your purpose, if you let them. When you encounter a naysayer, don’t be intimidated by them. Tell them thank you. Pray for them. Don’t let the actions of others become your standard of living. You are not designed to be like them. Make the best of the situation. You are made to stand out, not fit in.

When you give in to negative thoughts you’ve already lost the battle. Don’t dwell on the negative. Bless those who curse you, even when they persecute you. It doesn’t matter what people say about you. It’s not true. You don’t look like what you’ve been through. Don’t get weary. You’re Winning!

Stop inviting haters to pity parties only to have them extend invitations to more miserable, uninvited guests. Keep your secrets to yourself.

Don’t listen to naysayers. They don’t know you. Whatever they say about you isn’t true. Declare, I am and will be all that God says I am. I am victorious!

Be blessed! –JD

Lies and Rumors, Rumors and Lies; The Devil is a Liar!

Oftentimes our past will hinder our ability to receive the blessings God has stored up for us. We choose to become bound by things which we have no control but will give control when we fail to resist or release it, letting it control us.

When the devil tells you a lie you know is not the truth. Don’t believe him. He lies and doesn’t believe in the truth. God will place the enemy under your feet. The devil will flee!

The devil’s a LIAR. He’s weak. He’ll do anything to make you feel useless when you’re weak. If God be for you who can be against you? No one can be against you when God is for you. The devil can’t take from you what God already promised you. He may try to convince you it’s not yours. It’s yours. God promised it to you.

Confusion comes from the adversary that will leave you wondering where God is when you’re broken and can’t find healing. Rebuke that spirit! When you can’t see God in the midst of your trials, know that God is with you all the while. Don’t look to the right or the left. Look to God for help. He is a present help. When you’re at your lowest of lows and feel you can’t go on. Be strong. Man can do you no harm. God sits high on the throne. He’ll work it out. Hold on. Have faith. It’s done. God already worked it out.

Failure is expected when you stop trying. You ultimately will give up without trying. God won’t fail you. Great is his faithfulness. Don’t give up or think he’s not there for you. It’s just a test. God loves you. A double-minded person has a single thought mentality. They’re unstable in all they do and lack clarity. Live one life. Have the mind of Christ. Don’t think about it twice.

When others tell you you’ll never be anything. Don’t believe them. Misery loves company. In God’s eyes, you are more than a conqueror.

When others look down on you, don’t let it trouble you. Defeat is a symptom of a lack of faith. Look to God from whence cometh your help. When in doubt, have faith. When there’s fear, pray. God will make a way. When lost, seek God. He’s just a prayer away.

When in opposition with the enemy, disillusionment will make you think God is who you want him to be. God is God. He is and always will be.

KNOW THIS: “God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?” (Numbers 23:19)

Lies and rumors, rumors and lies; the devil is a liar! Don’t believe anything he says. He’s the father of lies (Jn 8:44). Tell the truth. Shame the devil. Don’t be afraid of the truth. Trust God.  God does not lie. His Word is truth.

Be blessed! –JD

Lamentations 3:19-24 “I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. 20 I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. 21 Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: 22 Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. 23 They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. 24 I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”
