Daily Devotional – 8/10/15 “I ponder …”

I sometimes sit and ponder about things. I ponder why women pat the crap out of their heads when it’s itching instead of scratching it. I ponder why people look over their glasses when reading instead of through them. I ponder why folk will call you on your home phone and then ask if you’re at home. I ponder why someone will interrupt you working and then ask if you’re busy. I sometimes ponder if God gets tired of all the mess His people get into on a daily basis. I ponder why some folk would wish bad things over other folk’s lives. I ponder if angry folk ever get any peace in their mind. I ponder if judgmental folk ever get rest from their thoughts. And I ponder if evil spirited folk ever get tired of being evil. Is there anyone else who ponders over things? I mean, there are some folk in this world (some closer than you think) that will wish badly over your life yet they’ll smile in your face. There is folk praying for your demise and you haven’t done a thing to them yet they haven’t succeeded, why should you? There are folks who are strategically placed in your ministry to make it a living hell for you, all because they can’t grasp the concept of why God called you. There are folks, in your family, who roll their eyes every time you stop by because they can’t stand to see you happy and it’s all because they aren’t.

I tell you what you do, continue to live! Continue to walk in your purpose! Continue to do what God has called you to do! Continually pray for them and let God handle them. You don’t have to shy away from your blessing because you are afraid of what “they” will say. You don’t have to be coy about the fact that God did it for you, again when He can do it for them too. Continue to stand on God’s word, continue to stay in God and you’ll realize that you don’t have to fight them for His word says in Proverbs 20:22, “Don’t say, “I will get even for this wrong.” Wait for the LORD to handle the matter.” You don’t have to do what they do, say what they say or respond when they post because the bible says in 1 Peter 3:9, “Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will bless you for it.” All you have to do is continue to be who God has deemed you worthy of being. Yes, you will always have enemies camped around you but that means you have something worth destroying; stay in your line and God will handle it for you! Don’t allow stuff or even folk to affect your purpose.
