My sister, get the facts!

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things” Philippians 4:8, NKJV.

It happens to be that 99.9% of the time, whenever we assume something, our assumptions are wrong. We can think, “He walked by me because…”, “She didn’t respond to my text because…”, or “They didn’t invite me because…” When we assume, we are making judgments without knowing the real facts. Assumptions can keep our minds preoccupied all day long, and if we aren’t careful, we will create emotions about something that hasn’t been proven to be true. Our body doesn’t know the difference between an assumption and a fact and will respond as if everything it feels is real.

Maybe they didn’t invite you because there was limited space. Maybe she didn’t respond to your text because her life has been extremely stressful and she didn’t want to put anything more on you. Maybe he walked by you because he is dealing with some things that has his mind preoccupied and he didn’t see you. Everything people do is not because they don’t like you or because they feel something negative towards you. Don’t let assumptions ruin you, my sister. If you feel it’s important to know something, it is best to ask. We can’t think on “whatever is true” if we don’t know what is true. Let’s get the facts!

Prayer: Father God, forgive me for anytime I’ve allowed my mind to be bogged down with assumptions. Help me not assume everything without knowing the facts. Help me reject any thought the enemy tries to plant in my mind about someone or something. Help me to think on whatever is true. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
