Ignore Distractions

May 27, 2022

Today's Scripture

1 Samuel 10:27, AMP
And they regarded Saul with contempt and did not bring him a gift. But he ignored the insult and kept silent.

Today's Word

In 1 Samuel 10, after Saul was chosen to be the first king of Israel, most of the people were happy and congratulated him. But when Saul went back home, some of the people spoke of him with contempt and despised him. They said he didn't have what it took to be king, and they tried to push him down. Saul refused to waste his time with these small-minded people who didn't value who he was or respect the talent and favor on his life. He simply chose to ignore them.

If you're going to reach your destiny, you have to get good at ignoring negative comments, criticism, insults, and naysayers. They don't control your destiny. They are distractions to try to keep you from God's best. Instead of being upset over who's not for you and frustrated over who's trying to make you look bad, ignore them. Jealous people can't keep you from your destiny. Small-minded people can't stop your purpose. That's not a battle you have to fight. Let God vindicate you.

Prayer for Today

Father, thank You that You are the Most High God, and You hold my destiny in Your hands. Thank You that You are my great defender when I come under personal criticism and attack. Help me to ignore insignificant distractions that try to keep me from Your best. In Jesus' Name, Amen
