In Others’ Words: The Power of Approval
I can imagine what someone might be thinking about me … Or what someone might be saying about me behind my back.
These kinds of imaginings are never positive. I almost always assume the worst.
And sometimes, well, my imagnings have been confirmed. Someone doesn’t like me. Doesn’t respect me. Doesn’t approve of me.
And that reality stings in a way that deflates me … suddenly I am unsure of myself. What if that person is right in their estimation of me?
But what if I imagine something else altogether? What if I forget about all those “someones” who might be thinking about me or saying something about me … and I remember what God says about me?
Oh, the power of God’s approval. Imagine that!
I don’t have to earn God’s approval.
God made me — and He loves me because I am His.
His love is unconditional — no approval-based list of right and wrong fueling His desire to have a relationship with me.
God’s approval is so powerful it transforms all my tomorrows into eternity with Him. And His approval stands against anyone else’s disapproval of me — if only I will stop giving others’ opinions of me more credibility than they deserve.
