Nothing can stand against God: no addiction too hard to overcome, no sickness is too great, no Pandemic too strong, no enemy too powerful.
People don’t determine your destiny. And someone may have put you at a disadvantage; you keep doing the right thing. God knows how to vindicate you. He knows how to cause you to stand out.
You may have had unfair things happen: people left you out, tried to discredit you - God saw what happened, he’s keeping the records, he hasn’t forgotten about you. Keep doing the right thing when the wrong thing is happening; keep being kind to people that are not being good to you. Sometimes God does things gradually, little by little, he’ll make up for the lost time.
People judge by the outside: by your appearance, your nationality, your education, but God looks at the heart. Don’t be discouraged if people write you off; promotion doesn’t come from people, it comes from God. God sees: you have a heart after him; He understands your sincerity, your integrity, your spirit of excellence.
“The Lord of Armies himself has planned it; therefore, who can stand in its way? It is his hand that is outstretched, so who can turn it back?”
Isaiah 14:27 CSB
What’s on the inside is more powerful than what’s on the outside.
