Why don’t you like me? John Piper offers a tweet to this question:
God controls how people feel toward us. “I will begin to put the dread and fear of you on the peoples” (Deuteronomy 2:25).

Wow. I never really thought about it. That’s a powerful word to a pastor, to anyone. God controls how people feel about you.
That means every word spoken, every sentiment thought, every feeling felt…God is up to something. Even that hurtful email someone wrote you…God is up to something.
