“When people’s lives please the Lord even their enemies are at peace with them.”
Proverbs 16:7 (NLT)
When God’s spirit is within you, you are sure to attract others. Spending time with God gives you a peace and a perspective that sets you apart. People may say, there’s just something different about him/her” when referring to you. There is something different about you.
Making the decision to please God instead of man will completely change your life. You are no longer enslaved to the opinions of other people. You know your worth in Christ, so you aren’t desperate for validation from man. You are confident in who you are and what God has called you to do, so you are not distracted or confused by others’ differing opinions.
Live a life that is so pleasing to God, so committed to Him, that even your enemies admire you. God has chosen you to be His ambassador. Can others see God in you?
However, you are chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, people who belong to God. You were chosen to tell about the excellent qualities of God, who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
1 Peter 2:9 (GW)
