I’m watching God’s people struggle with changes going on around them, that they know are biblically wrong. I too have struggled. I’m heartbroken to see so many people accepting changes that go against the Word of God. It seems if we speak up, then we are thought of as an obstacle hindering the majority who push to move forward.
It comes down to us making the decision that no matter how disliked or rejected we feel by others; that we will choose to allow God to use us as an instrument for him. This means the harder the majority pushes for us to be quiet; the louder we get. The more pressure we come under will only strengthen our stand and our prayer life. The more hate delivered to us, the more love we offer. The more darkness we come against, the brighter our light gets.
None of this is possible until us believers are predetermined to stand in faith, speak boldly in truth, hold confidence in Christ, while courageously braving the majority coming against us. This is where our trust is truly tested.
Some of you may feel as if all you have tried is a losing battle. (You see no changes.) The Bible reminds us in Galatians 6:9 not to grow weary in well doing as we will reap a harvest if we don’t give up. Keep planting seeds of truth, love and rightness; while resisting the temptation to be self-seeking, proud or angry. The Lord is counting on us so don’t bow to defeat…
Blessings to each of you,
