“God always has the final say.”TB
Do not be swayed by the foolish and temporal opinions of people. They do not know enough to even glean an inkling of God’s plans. The opposition will craftily use us to deter one another from our callings. For that reason, be quick to listen and slow to speak, because God’s vision and plans supersede our understanding.
Just because you feel unqualified does not mean that God doesn’t lift up His children. Like the people before you, He has a knack for using the least likely. Why? What better way to show might than to exalt the underdog? So whatever your task, whatever your objective, do it with the confidence that God has the final say, not man.
Are you doing what you’re supposed to or has the influence of fools got you down?

1 Then the LORD spoke to Jonah a second time: 2 “Get up and go to the great city of Nineveh, and deliver the message I have given you.” 3 This time Jonah obeyed the LORD ’s command and went to Nineveh, a city so large that it took three days to see it all. 4 On the day Jonah entered the city, he shouted to the crowds: “Forty days from now Nineveh will be destroyed!” 5 The people of Nineveh believed God’s message, and from the greatest to the least, they declared a fast and put on burlap to show their sorrow. 6 When the king of Nineveh heard what Jonah was saying, he stepped down from his throne and took off his royal robes. He dressed himself in burlap and sat on a heap of ashes. 7 Then the king and his nobles sent this decree throughout the city: “No one, not even the animals from your herds and flocks, may eat or drink anything at all. 8 People and animals alike must wear garments of mourning, and everyone must pray earnestly to God. They must turn from their evil ways and stop all their violence. 9 Who can tell? Perhaps even yet God will change his mind and hold back his fierce anger from destroying us.” 10 When God saw what they had done and how they had put a stop to their evil ways, he changed his mind and did not carry out the destruction he had threatened.
