There are times when, like job we are misunderstood by people we thought would understand and comfort us. Sometimes even the people who are the closest to us do not understand our struggles, our dreams, our personalities, or our callings from God.
Before my ministry became established. I remember when people misunderstood me because I was too serious for them, They did not like the same things, I did or do things he way I did. Instead, they would ask me, “Why do you act the way you do?”
I look back now and realize that everything I needed to do the work of Joyce Meyer Ministries was already in me. The personality type and qualities that God wanted me to have were already there. God just had to polish me and get me in good working order.
As God is preparing you for His use, and as you are discovering exactly what He wants you to do, you might also feel strange and out of place. You may feel that you do not fit into the regular regimen of what is gong on around you. If you are already feeling strange, you may be tempted to be confused or bothered when people say things such as ” What’s wrong with you? Why do you act the way you do?” Part of your training for leadership is realizing that people will misunderstand you. You have to make up your mind that you are going to stand with God and do what He says even if nobody understands you, agrees with you, or supports you.
I believe He wants to do great things through you, so stick with Him when others do not understand. Most often people who do not understand you do not mean to hurt you, they simply do not understand. ~~ Joyce Meyer
Where works of the flesh exists, there is NO joy
