When you make the conscious decision to walk according to God’s will, word and way, don’t be surprised when jealous, envious, disrespectful haters attempt to plot and plan your downfall. You are a distinguished protected child of God, the Holy Spirit resides in you and Jesus Christ is your Savior. Because of this individuals will witness God’s favor on your life and they will either rejoice or despise in what God is doing in your life. Negative people will purposely plan their schedules to take time to create opportunities to oppose you, demean you and dim your light, but trust God and continuously walk in his way no matter the opposition because he will protect you.
You could possibly be an employee of God-honoring integrity within a prosperous business and your boss is considering promoting you and your fellow co-workers (who don’t even like each other) work together, against you in the attempt to damage your opportunity of increase.
Or you could be a student and you are about to graduate and a teacher who is not fond of you creates obstacles to hinder your overall success.
You could be a school administrator who successfully aims students to reach their educational and Christ-centered spiritual targets and well respected but your colleagues seek to remove you from your God-ordained position due to their laziness and lack of passion in ministering to youth.
Or you could be an individual believing for God’s best and mockers and naysayers publicly attempt to embarrass you in order that you settle for less than what God has in store for you.
The circumstances people face when they choose to draw close to God are real, but as believers in Christ we must remember “no weapon formed against us will prosper” (Isaiah 54:17). Don’t be dismayed that you are going through issues remember that God comes through in protecting you from every attack of the enemy, these attacks never prosper and in each attack God gets the glory and praise. God protected Daniel and God loves you and he will Come through in protecting you!
