Sometimes the closer you get to God and the more favor God exhibits in your life the more the naysayers will criticize you and come against you making the battle harder and the more discouraged you become. Always seems to be judging you or questioning you in a derogatory way. They may even question your motives but you have to remember to focus on God and his wisdom; He will fight those battles for you. His approval is the only one to compete for and to seek. If you keep your focus on him He will put the right people in your path and around you. Ones that will celebrate and support you, ones that will encourage you not discourage you.
Jesus didn't listen to his critics but ignored them and continued on his righteous path with faith and confidence. He did not worry about the mockers or the ones who didn't want to listen. He was steadfast and did what he was called to do, Glorify His Heavenly Father. King Saul would listen to the jealous ones but when would follow God's path for his life, God was right there to help him succeed.
Before you were born I sanctified you;"
Heavenly Father, I come to you in the name of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus. Heavenly Father, I ask You to renew our strength, the ones that wait upon You: that we shall mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not be weary we will walk and not faint. Heavenly Father, we thank You that You will renew our strength, the ones that wait upon You: that we shall mount up with. Wings like eagles, they will run and not be weary we will walk and not faint. In the Name of Jesus Christ I pray...Amen!
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint."
