There are times in our lives when we feel that we need to stand up for ourselves, someone else, or something in which we believe. It takes courage and conviction to stand up, especially if we are going against popular opinion. When we are looking for courage, we can be empowered by remembering that as long as we are following God, He will stand with us!
God shows us what is right. We can learn from the examples He gives us in His Word. We can learn to be faithful from the story of Job. We can learn to be loving from the example of Jesus Christ. We can learn many other lessons, too. It is important, though, that we also believe in God's promises, including redemption through His Son and that He will return to earth one day. When we believe that our Redeemer lives and that He is returning, the words of Job can be empowering and give us strength to stand together with other believers and with God Himself!
Follow God and stand with Him in His truth and power!
Thank You for the lessons You teach and the power that You give to me. Help me to continue to grow in my understanding of You and Your will in my life. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
