Stop trying to understand the thoughts and motives of others so that you can influence the outcome. It’s not My will for you, nor is it your business. Your only responsibility is to love. I know your motive and I know you heart. If people misunderstand you, it’s their responsibility, not yours to seek clarification. You are not responsible for how someone responds to you. I want you to be yourself and to choose to love. The rest and the outcome are in My hands. ``
You’re really only responsible in any situation for a small sliver of the total outcome. The rest is up to the other people involved and how I choose for things to unfold. Remember that I’ve already seen how things will unfold in any and every situation. I already have a plan in place to use all things for your good. There’s nothing to fear when I’m your God who loves and protects you. Instead of trying to control peoples’ reaction to you, rest in knowing that I’m your God and that everything will come together for your good.
“In Him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of Him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of His will.” Ephesians 1:11
