Take the High Road

“The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest” – Exodus 14:14

In life, we’re always going to have critics. We’ll always have difficult people who try to upset us and steal our peace and joy. But, you don’t have to respond to every critic. You can decide to take the high road and let God fight your battles for you.

Sometimes, no matter what you say or do, there are people who aren’t going to accept you. They just don’t want to be at peace with you. In fact, when Jesus sent out His disciples to certain homes, He told them to always speak peace over those homes. And then He said in effect, “If they don’t receive the peace that you’re offering, then it will come back to you.” That tells us that if we will do our best to be at peace with people, even if they won’t take our peace, the good news is that peace will just come back to us. You’ll not only get your peace, but you’ll get their share as well! That’s double for your trouble! When you do the right thing no matter what is happening, God sees it and rewards it. Today, stay in peace, cease from strife, and take the high road. Sow good seeds into others and watch the harvest of blessing come to your own life in return.

The Road To Success Is Not Straight

The Road to Success is not straight.
There is a curve called Failure,

A loop called Confusion
Speed bumps called Friends,

Red lights called Enemies,
Caution lights called Family

and Flats called Jobs.

But, if you have a spare called Determination,
An engine called Perseverance,

Fuel called Hope,
Insurance called Faith,
And a driver called Jesus,

You will make it to a place called Success.
