Most of the time, we succumb ourselves with what others think. Let’s remember that there are four voices that we hear in any circumstance: you, other people, your situation and God. Whenever you do something, think about it four times. Are you listening to yourself, other people, your situation or God.
Don’t let anyone dictate your actions–even yourself. Fix your eyes to the reliable.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12:2)
How’s that? Good, pleasing and perfect result in whatever circumstance. Trust in Him. Listen. Listen well.
