How To Respond To People’s Convictions

You need not be judgmental about other people’s convictions. You are not God, so do not act as one. People play God in other people’s lives when they attempt to be a gauge for every conviction shared with them. Yes, you have God’s Spirit and there is room for confirmation in the body, after all, in the mouth of two or three witnesses, a matter is established. Nevertheless, you need not act as the alpha and omega. When you believe others are wrong about their convictions, either in part or the whole, be constructive in pointing this out. Let your … Continue reading How To Respond To People’s Convictions

How To Be Happy In Your Convictions

People’s opinions might give you a mixed feeling. Some will make you glad about it and some might provoke a regret. The way people around you receive your convictions might make you uncomfortable.

If any of you are embarrassed over me and the way I’m leading you when you get around your fickle and unfocused friends, know that you’ll be an even greater embarrassment to the Son of Man when he arrives in all the splendor of God, his Father, with an army of the holy angels. Mark.8.37 … Continue reading How To Be Happy In Your Convictions

How To Remain In Your Convictions

Remaining in your convictions requires an action from you; it’s not done passively. By default, people slip from their convictions in the face of many things.

You live and face the challenges of life by your convictions. Without conviction, one is easily tossed here and there by the forces of life.

How To Communicate Your Convictions

You do not communicate your convictions to people by argument and debate. The more you speak the less you are likely to make sense. To start with, you do not owe everybody an explanation of the ‘what’, ‘why’, ‘when’, ‘where’ and ‘how’ you are doing. There are those who ask and investigate you. Some out of genuine concern and some acting like monitoring spirits and some out of despise, seeking to prove a point. However, the truth is, you do not owe everybody a conviction dissertation defense. There are those people in your life, which ought to know by the … Continue reading How To Communicate Your Convictions

How To See Your Convictions Through

Talk less about your convictions to people around you. When Jesus told his disciples that the son of man would die, Peter rebuked him. When people know your plans, they will not want you to do it because it might look like foolishness and mind you, the foolishness of God is wiser than the wisdom of this world. When Abraham sensed the mountain God was leading him to, he collected the materials from the servants and went with the son only (Genesis 22:1-3). He did not tell the wife that sought a child for decades. He did not tell the … Continue reading How To See Your Convictions Through
