“And true circumcision is not a cutting of the body but a change of heart produced by God's Spirit. Whoever has that kind of change seeks praise from God, not from people” Romans 2:29 (NLT).
In other words, "What other people think of me, is none of my business"
And now a word from Joel -
Some people believe they need a miracle to get on track with God, but many times that is just not true. That doesn't mean we should completely dismiss the value of miracles, but God's impact can be much simpler than that. All that you may need to get right with God is a lifestyle change. For instance, are you at that place in life where you're just going through the routines of the day, but your life isn't really going where you want it to go? You may need a minor lifestyle shift, not a miraculous wonder, but an adjustment that will put you where God wants you to be. Pray to God for guidance, read His Word and see what He tells you. Make sure you're doing your part, such as exercising your body, strengthening your faith, getting sleep and being prepared. When you trust God and do what you already know He wants you to do, you put you position yourself for the divine.
