Convictions Are Personal

Encouragement Today

Today’s encouragement is a simple reminder your personal conviction is intended for only you and not for everyone else. Therefore, be cautious when sharing what God has convicted you with that you do not place that same conviction onto others. Not everyone is in the same place in life because God prepares each individual with His timing and purpose, not ours.

When you place your convictions in life on someone else, they may not be ready for what you are sharing. They may never be ready either because what God convicts you of may not even be a journey He wants for them.

I believe our convictions are based on the guidance God gives each individual because He is always preparing us for our journey that lies ahead. It is also my opinion that it is okay to share with others what we believe God has convicted us with, but you can not expect for Him to give your friend or loved one the same conviction as you at the same time.

Lastly, remember to not pass judgement on others if their convictions do not align with yours. If God wants you in the same place at the same time, He will place convictions on the others as well.
