but it is torn down by the mouth of the wicked.”
I don’t know what criticisms you face today, but I would like to offer the following suggestions for dealing with them. First, stay calm and take your case to the Lord in prayer. Don’t quit, and don’t stop. Count on the Lord to give you the strength and courage to face the storm. Find a brother or sister in Christ who can provide consistent encouragement. And finally, seek relief and peace in His Word. We must also be on guard with our own words and attitudes. Remember every person you meet today is either a demolition site or a construction opportunity. Your words make a difference. Will they be weapons for destruction or tools for construction?
Lord, help me choose my words carefully today. Help me build others up rather than tear them down. Amen.
