Have you ever wondered why everything just continues to go wrong for you and you feel you are constantly in the line of fire? You are in a situation that forces you to deal with prideful people. They can do and say anything mean-spirited and nothing bad seems to happen to them, they just keep making your life miserable! It makes you feel so hopeless and abandoned; you just want to give up completely because you just can't get out of Satan's firing line.

If we have faith in Christ, we know that God will come to our aid, and He will show us that we have been dealing with small-minded prideful people. Those people love to gossip, they're jealous, angry and love to hurt you by pushing your buttons.

The Bible shows us how to deal with these kinds of people. God chooses ordinary people to bless; God chose Virgin Mary, a poor young girl from a small town, with no special talents to be the mother of Jesus. Mary was chosen because her heart was full of love and kindness. She was an unmarried girl and pregnant. She suffered through much gossip and criticism but looked away from those spiteful and mean-spirited people and waited for the day of Jesus' birth.

Jesus was the most mistreated and criticized person in history. Even the Christians found fault with him; Jesus ignored them and continued to walk in love and carry out His Father's wishes. Thank God for our wonderful friend, the Lord sends us to see us through our tough times.

If you are going through some tough times and are being mistrusted and criticized, turn away from these small-minded and spiteful people. Rejoice! God has a wonderful plan for you.
