With that said, I realize how easy it is to judge people. It is dangerous how easy it is. We don't have enough information to properly assess where others are in their life. Nor should we be doing such things. I am so thrilled at the idea that God knows me so well, there is no justifying anything. I don't need to defend myself. On the contrary, I need to humble myself before a God who has given me the power to be more than a conqueror. Ooooh, that could get me going on a whole new post.....
More than a conqueror!!! It is too easy to feel defeat because of the sin that is reigning in this world. We think that with our own flesh and what we see around us, that there is no hope. But, as stated in my last post... YET, I still dare to hope in the faithfulness of our God. Sure troubles come. In fact:
We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. 2 Corinthians 4:8 & 9
We are not crushed, driven to despair, never abandoned and are not destroyed!!!! That is victory!!! So, while I continue to live not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, may I not be so concerned with how others may view the choices I make.
Have a wonderful weekend!!!!
