Topic: Making the Choice to Stand with God [Seeds of Destiny 24 January 2019 Devotional]
Scripture: And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15.
Thought For The Day: To take a stand for God is to become a standard in life.
Life is a product of choice; what or where you would be in life is a product of your decision. People remain where they are in life because of indecision.
It is important to note that dedication is critical to becoming great in life. One implication of taking sides with God is making the choice to take a stand for God; a public stand for God. There must be a choice if a person must stand and remain with God. It is taking a public stand with God like Elijah who said, ‘…before God whom I stand…’ (1 Kings 17:1). When you take a stand with God, people will know you with God. Those who are not dedicated cannot take a stand for God; they cannot tolerate what is not pleasant on behalf of God and the Kingdom; they are allergic to controversy and addicted to convenience. If becoming a Christian would make them look controversial, they would not take a spiritual stand with God. They are married to what is convenient. No one goes far with God who refuses to make the choice to stand with God. To take a stand for God is to become a standard in life.
Beloved, as a Christian, you must make up your mind to stand out for God and speak against the ungodly work of darkness wherever you find yourself. Make the choice to stand for God.
Remember this: To take a stand for God is to become a standard in life.
- Make the choice to take a stand for God even if it means to stand alone.
- Make the principles of God’s Word your standard for living.
Prayer: Father, I ask that You give me the grace to take a stand for You even if it means to stand alone, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
