Prophetic Principles – Don’t Take It Personally

At some point
you will share a word with someone and they will not like what they
hear. They may disagree with your delivery or even the content of your
theology. The wider the audience for your ministry becomes the more this
will happen – sometimes with regularity. This can take place with such
ease in our immediate and unthinking world of social media where people
take the liberty to judge your life and the content of your theology
based on a single paragraph of insight you share. Take comfort, it
also took place in the Early Church when some people complained that
Paul’s letters were too forceful. 

Be careful to not allow a negative response to offend you. If you are a
feeling human being you will have a reaction to these challenges at
first, but give your reactions to God – immediately. A wasted moment in
offense or in a public defense of what you shared will begin a work in
your heart that can actually hijack your voice for the purpose of
another kingdom. Forgive your critics and move on. God never promised
everyone would agree with everything you say or write.
