The Expectations Of Others

July 3, 2013

“For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.” - John 6:38                                       

No matter what anyone else is doing, whether it is good or not so good, keep your eyes and life on the Lord. Allow Him to live His life in and through you and you will be all that He expects you to be even if you are not all that others expect you to be.

When you feel the expectations of others pulling you in the wrong direction, rest in Jesus alone. Never be arrogant (my way or no way), but be determined to follow God’s way.  Humans will always be fickle - God is never. Be true to Him alone, nothing else really matters. You will be a blessing if you will only live this way.
