Topic: Negative Chatter
“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.”(John 14:1, NKJV)
With social media, so many people can hide behind being anonymous and say hurtful, critical things to try to make you feel small, unattractive, and not good enough. At times it may seem as though there’s a campaign against someone, but it’s usually just a handful of bullies, haters, and envious people. You can’t stop that from coming, but you can ignore it. Let it bounce right off you.
Joel Osteen Today’s Devotional 12th October 2020 – Negative Chatter
The trick of the enemy is to try to deceive you into thinking about it all the time, and then it contaminates your life. Don’t let the poison in. Don’t even bother to read it when it gets negative. Don’t call a friend and ask them what someone might be saying about you. Don’t let your heart be troubled; let God take care of it. You don’t have to defend yourself. God is your vindicator. Just run your race. Stay focused on moving forward, and He will take care of the rest.
A Prayer For Today
“Father, thank You that You are my vindicator, and You will protect my reputation as I keep on honoring You. Help me to let any negative chatter bounce off me and not read it or listen to it. I believe that You will handle it Your way. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
