“And as for [the rest of] you, believers, do not grow tired or lose heart in doing good [but continue doing what is right without weakening].”
2 Thessalonians 3:13 AMP
There is hardly a day that goes by that your values and convictions are not challenged. If it doesn’t hurt somebody else and it makes you feel good, it must be right. Whatever happened to the days where right was right and wrong was wrong? It certainly appears that we are becoming more and more intolerant of what many of us once held as absolutes. It was Martin Luther King who said, “The time is always right to do what is right.” It takes courage not to cave-in and become a chameleon that just blends in with its environment. I believe that what you need is a fresh baptism of the Holy Spirit empowering you with a courageous faith that is committed to standing up for what is right. Joshua 1:9 (AMP) says, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Pray this, “Holy spirit, I ask you right to give me a fresh baptism, empowering me with a courageous faith that will stand boldly and declare before others what is true, what is honorable, what is right, what is pure, what is lovely, and what is commendable. In Jesus Name, Amen.” My friends, stand up and be courageous. Do not shrink back. Speak and walk and act courageously, and remember, God is for you.
