I ask myself two questions when people come against me: is this going to have an effect on my eternity and what is the worse that can happen? Sometimes we worry about simple things that are an unnecessary waste of time that causes us anxiety. My goal is to live a peaceful, worry free life, overflowing with the joy of the Lord, but unfortunately the people of this world don't want or can't have peace. The enemy fills people with nasty thoughts that sometimes turn into actions that can disrupt our lives. Take that moment of anxiousness from the hands of your oppressor, let them have their say while they are in your presence and then when they are gone, let it go, release it to God. You can also be speaking to God in your mind while they are speaking to you! They are the troubled ones. If God needs you to fix something in your life, He will let you know. This world is full of broken people who are puppets in the hands of the enemy. Remember who your God is!
For it is time for judgment to begin at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? And "If the righteous is scarcely saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?" Therefore let those who suffer according to God's will entrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good. 1 Peter 4:17-19
