“Don’t let them get you down”
And the people stood by, looking on. And even the rulers were sneering at Him, saying, “He saved others; let Him save Himself if this is the Christ of God, His Chosen One.” The soldiers also mocked Him, coming up to Him, offering Him sour wine, and saying, “If You are the King of the Jews, save Yourself!” (Luke 23:35-37) In this story, Jesus is being challenged by on lookers. They wanted him to prove he was the Christ of God by taking himself down off the cross. He could have. Yet, he stayed there for you and me. He didn’t let them get him down! Have you ever been challenged to prove yourself to others? Have you ever endured something for the sake of others?
Whenever you’re elevated in life people will surface trying to discredit your elevation. Don’t let them get you down? The higher you matriculate you find more and more people challenging your position to disprove its’ validity. God has positioned you to be a blessing to others. Whatever you have to endure is for a higher calling. It’s funny in life how some people enjoy watching you in pain. Some ridicule you for walking in the blessings of God. They want to wipe the smile off your face. Misery still loves company but don’t let them get you down.
Beware of those that try to use words against you to upset you’re psyche. Don’t let them get you down. They want you to lower your standards to shine a flashlight on your deficiencies and broadcast them on the “I told you so radio station”. Keep your head elevated and watch how many you draw for support. Simply because you never let them get you down! Them can be next to you in bed at night but don’t let them get you down! Them could be a team of coworkers at the office but don’t let them get you down! Them could be your mother or your father but don’t let them get you down! Them could just be an overload of circumstances but don’t let them get you down! No matter what the situation looks like below you God has you elevated for a reason. Stay there because it’s for those behind you to bear witness how to endure when life tries to get you down.
