“For even His brothers did not believe in Him.” John 7:5
Joseph’s brothers did not believe in him; David’s brothers did not believe in him; Jesus’ brothers didn’t also believe in Him: well, it didn’t stop them from being great or from fulfilling God’s purposes for their lives.
Believe in yourself. Your success in life is not dependent on any particular individual: for everyone who doesn’t support you, there are several others that God destined to help you achieve His plans for your life. If God has said yes, nobody can say no. You must do whatever you need to do even if the most important people in your life don’t seem to care.
God believes in you. You must depend on Him. You may be determined, passionate and persistent; you may possess all the right qualities and skills, but without God you will be greatly limited, and you will fail. Uzziah sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God; and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him prosper. II Chronicles 26:5. You too will prosper as you continue to seek God and depend on Him. Amen.
