Let us be bold, then, and say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What can anyone do to me?” – Hebrews 13:6 (GNT)
It really hurts when someone betrays you. Maybe you had a friend that you thought was there for you. Then all of a sudden you found out that they had been talking about you behind your back. When things like that happen, it can really be difficult to know what to do. Your natural response might be to get back at them. Perhaps you want to do something to them to hurt them as bad as they hurt you.
The truth is, regardless of what others do to you. You choose your response. You are the one in charge of your emotions. You can choose to let difficult people and situations destroy you or make you better. So if you’re in the middle of a tough time in your life, today determine to choose a positive response.
That isn’t to say that what has been done to you is ok, but rather that you’re not going to let it define you. Instead, choose to think thoughts about the goodness of God. Choose to believe your value to God. Let God be your helper when things are tough and you’ll see that He will take you through.
