“And Saul also went home to Gibeah; and valiant men went with him, whose hearts God had touched. But some rebels said, ‘How can this man save us?’ So they despised him, and brought him no presents. But he held his peace” 1 Samuel 10:26-27, NKJV.
As you go higher in God, as you step into your assignment, there will be people God will touch in their hearts to assist you. God is going to cause many to willingly come right alongside you to help your vision come to pass. This is a very good thing. It will bless you greatly to see people gladly support you and you see the hand of God at work on your behalf. Yet, there will be those deemed as doubters, who whether openly or in secret, don’t agree with what God can use you to accomplish. They don’t agree with your promotion.
They may talk but hold your peace. They may not be on your side but hold your peace. It’s wise not to get involved with what the enemy wants to ultimately use to take you off course. Everyone wasn’t for Saul being the first king, everyone wasn’t for Jesus being the King of kings, and everyone may very well not be for you. But you remain encouraged knowing that God is for you, and like Saul, He chose you. Walk in love and continue your course. Bless them and continue your course.
Prayer: Father, thank You that You are for me. Thank You for touching people to support me also. I pray for those that openly or secretly are against me. Help me to hold my peace. Help me give it no attention. I’m continuing forward. I ask that You bless them and use my silence to minister Your unity and love to them. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
