“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he…” Proverbs 23:7, NKJV
It doesn’t matter what people think about you. All that matters is what you think about yourself. What God has said about you doesn’t benefit you at all until you agree. What God thinks about you doesn’t benefit you at all until you choose to see. Remove your hands from your eyes, and see how great, see how beautiful, see how lovely He has made you.
Stop waiting for people to change their mind about you before you do what God has called you to do. Stop waiting for people to change their mind about you before you choose to believe. Move forward in God and let nothing stop you from fulfilling your purpose and reaching your destiny. Let nothing hinder you. The only power people’s thoughts about you have over your life is the power you give it. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, strip off every hold you’ve allowed others to have on you.
Say out loud from your heart, “No more will I allow what others think of me to hinder me. I choose to agree with God’s WORD. I choose to remove my hands from my eyes so I can see myself the way God sees me. What people think about me has no power. I strip it of all power I’ve given it in Jesus name. As I think in my heart, so am I. I am chosen by God and I will do great things. I am fearfully and wonderfully made and God loves me unconditionally. I will let His truth prophesy over me and be the biggest and loudest voice in my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
“It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop than to share a house with a disagreeing, quarrelsome, and scolding woman” Proverbs 25:24, Amplified.
Let’s pause and think about that for a moment.
The truth is, when we are slamming doors, holding silent treatments, throwing dishes, withholding sex, calling up all of our friends to vent about our spouses, this is rooftop behavior. When our spouses and loved ones would prefer to be on the rooftop than in the same house with us, that says something about us. It’s cold and uncomfortable on the roof. It’s unsafe up there. But that’s where people would rather be when they’re constantly being nagged, fought with, and scolded for every little thing. Come on my sisters! God didn’t create us to be that way!
God wants you to be the kind of woman that a man enjoys being around. To where he would rather be no where else than with you. How do we do that? We allow God to grow us up, and we let Him help us face the truth about ourselves so we can change.
Declare this from your heart today: “I will not behave like a childish rooftop woman. That’s not who I am. No matter how frustrated I get, God will help me control my tongue and control my emotions. No more acting like I have no sense. I am a woman of God. I respect myself too much to allow anyone or anything to get me out of God’s peace. In Jesus name!”
“But let it be the inward adorning and beauty of the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit, which [is not anxious or wrought up, but] is very precious in the sight of God.” 1 Peter 3:4 (AMP)
