Appearance Can Beg the Differ

Proverbs 28:25 (NIV)

The greedy stir up conflict, but those who trust in the LORD will prosper.

*Often, people fight against what God is trying to show or give to them without even realizing what they are doing. They find any way to be negative about the situation or individual, or embrace a level of skepticism and apprehension before being optimistic. If God is in it, all that He brings will be clearly noted that it is from Him. Any conflict that arises is the enemy trying to take it away from you. Don't allow the enemy to be victorious by influencing your mind. Sometimes the greatest blessings show up in the oddest packages, but you have to be willing to listen to God on whether this is your special delivery or if you should return to sender. Our Father is not the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33), but He doesn't leave the window of opportunity open for long either. Embrace your moment of peace, seize your desire, have an open mind towards differences, and stop considering conflict before confirmation. Sometimes what we think is a diamond is only worth a dime, and what looks crazy is actually the craziest blessing you could ever encounter...Help us see your blessings for what they truly are Lord, and not what we want them to be...
