Always thank God for your haters. They ALWAYS bring you SUCCESS.
Once you decide to live a life that pleases GOD, you will suddenly find many criticizers and haters sticking their ugly head up and trying to fight you down. Once you decide to do outside the box things as you promote the GOSPEL, or once your MESSAGES are too bold and speak the TRUTH, many people won't like you anymore. I'VE ALWAYS LOVED MY CRITICIZERS AND HATERS all my life. They encourage me to work harder, prove them WRONG and put them to SHAME.
When ever people aren't criticizing me or something that I'm doing or when ever folks aren't hating on me, I get too relaxed and feel uncomfortable. I just love, with the help of God proving my haters WRONG and putting them to SHAME.
Haters and criticizers were from the beginning of time. Cain was jealous of his brother Abel and that jealousy turned to hatred and caused him to murder his brother. In the New Testament, Pastor Jesus taught his following how to deal with the haters. He doesn't encourage them to take up knives and guns and bottles and stones and go down town to cause havoc. He rather tells them to see the opposition and hatred and criticizing as a REWARD for shining for GOD and He encouraged them to REJOICE.
Why would Pastor Jesus encourage his following to REJOICE during conflict? Simply because true children of GOD always come out ON TOP after conflict and put their naysayers to SHAME.
Matthew 5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Matthew 5:12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Always thank God for your haters! They ALWAYS bring you SUCCESS!
