believing other people make you feel the way you do...
Corinthians 1:18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are
perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. (NIV)
some point, all people have problems with other people. When others make us feel
bad, fearful, anxious, downhearted, or any of the other negative emotions, our
responsibility is to step back and look at things from a position of power
rather than from a position of weakness. In any difficulty with others, it is
not important what others do to us.
What is most important is how we respond
to others. If you live from a position of strength in your life, other people
will not make you feel negative emotions. When you live your life with an
outward bound heart full of caring, compassion, and love, you will always be
more concerned about others than you are in how concerned others are about you.
To live in Christian strength, the emotional center and power of your life must
be pointed outward toward Christ, not defensively pointed inward toward
yourself. Believing others make you feel the way you do is an admission you have
somehow lost power to be who God wants you to be. The ultimate truth of ultimate
truths is this…Christ always wants you to live in victory.
