Proverbs 12:18 (NLT) Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing.
Beloved, there will always be those who don’t moderate their words, and their careless barbs may sting though they originate from thoughtlessness or ignorance. And though the words may hurt, they do not have the power to change the truth of who you are. Nor do they get to shift My perception of you, so refuse to let them change your perspective of yourself.
You are My beloved one. If I have an area to correct you in, I will do so in love – just as a good Father always should. So stand firmly in your inherent identity, and refuse to be shaken. You are a child of the light and truth is your foundation.
