We all have our own opinions but then, we let the opinion of others sway our decisions.
This can be dangerous, because we might not be making the best decision for ourselves.
It’s important to remember that other people’s opinions aren’t always right.
You should never base your decision solely on what other people think. Instead, focus on what you know and what makes sense to you.
If you find yourself constantly second guessing yourself, then maybe you need to take a step back and reassess your situation.
When you feel confident that you’ve made the right choice, you will be at peace with your decision.
Have Confidence in Yourself
Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
When you have confidence in yourself, there is no need to look for validation from other people.
Your ability to accomplish what you set out to do comes from within.
This is not the type of confidence that comes from an arrogant place.
Rather it comes from a place of knowing where your help and your strength comes from.
You are able to pursue new things without being afraid of what others may say because you know for certain that it is God’s will for your life.
Now that is confidence!
By not worrying about the opinions of others, you can make sound judgments for yourself.
Find Solutions Rather Than Suggestions
We are so quick to seek advice from others when we run into problems because we are so concerned with what people think.
Instead we should seek solutions to our problems.
If we take the time to pray and meditate on the word of God we can find solutions to all kinds of issues.
The bible says there is nothing new under the sun but we always seem to think our problems are unique.
And call upon me on the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.”
We need to be intentional with going to God first, before people.
Stop People Pleasing
So many times we take on other people’s opinions not for our own benefit but to please others.
It’s time to stop! You have to get to a point in your life where you put yourself first.
It’s ok to say no to their suggestions and opinions.
You ever notice that people are so quick to give you advice on what you should do with your life. Especially when it benefits them in some way.
You deserve better than that.
For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Your worth is not defined by how you please others..
Protect your peace and focus on pleasing God.
It Doesn’t Matter What People Think
The truth is that people have different ideas about who we are.
Many people feel misunderstood and struggle with being themselves.
They live their lives on edge wondering if they are saying or doing what is right in the eyes of other people.
This is truly a sad way to live your life.
When we understand who we are in Christ, none of that matters anymore.
This is why it’s so important, for our own peace of mind, to not look to the left or to the right.
We only need to look to the hills because that’s where our help comes from.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
Stay Focused on what God says
It’s easy to let other people’s opinions influence our decisions.
We often do this when we allow ourselves to be influenced by others’ beliefs about who we are and how we should live.
In fact, people tend to believe that their own opinions are more valid than those of others.
As Christians, we must realize that God has given us the power to choose whether or not to follow Him.
Likewise, we have the power to choose whether or not to focus on other’s opinions of us.
When we let other people’s opinions determine our destiny, we’re allowing them to control our lives.
That’s why it’s important to remember that God knows everything about us, and He loves us unconditionally.
If we want to know what God thinks about us, we simply need to ask Him.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
If we truly desire to know His opinion, we’ll never be disappointed.
Remember That You Are A Child Of God
If you are struggling with staying focused on what God says about you, here are some tips to help you keep your focus.
- You were made a co-heir with Christ

But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,
