Taking a stand...

"Who will rise up for me against the wicked? Who will take a stand for me against evildoers?" - Psalm 94:16

In reading this psalm, it is easy to understand how the psalmist feels.  How many times have you felt as if no one is standing with you?  How many times would ask that just one person stand up and simply take you side of an arguement?  You "know" that you are right and there are no two ways about it, but why won't anyone else see that?  Maybe that is exactly why the psalmist is asking the question.  Maybe that is why he is posing the question to God, know that only God will fill the void.  Even if no one steps up to the plate, God will!

Let's turn this around for just a moment.  Let's just say that it is God posing the question...oh, does that hurt! What happens if God is to the point that He is asking for just one person to stand up and do the right thing.  He doesn't care what the general public opinion is or what the latest poles say...He wants someone to stand by Him!  There are times in our lives that I believe God IS asking that very question.  I would propose that there are social issues right now that fall under this category.  I'm not asking anyone to stand by me or my word, but to stand according to the Word of God.  Read His Word, stand for His truth!  Don't ever be afraid to take a stand; just make sure that you don't "stomp" in the process.  We should love as we stand for His truth!

In Christ,

Bro. Grant
