Keep Running Your Race

Today's Word: Jul 03, 2022

As was true for Daniel in today's Scripture, critics are always going to be around you. There will always be somebody who doesn't understand you, doesn't like what you're doing, and who's never going to be for you. What a shame to waste time trying to convince them otherwise when the fact is that they're never going to change. I'm asking you to let God be your defender. He can make things happen that you can't make happen. He's already lined up the right people to like you, the right people to celebrate you, and the right people to push you into your purpose just as Daniel did. Don't waste your time trying to convince the wrong people. Just keep running your race, honoring God, and being a person of excellence. If you do this, all the forces of darkness cannot hold you back. God will settle your cases. He's preparing a table before you right now in the presence of your enemies. He's going to vindicate you, promote you, and honor you.
