The Courage to Remain

It isn’t always easy to do what is right.  Not one person across the globe has intentionally said “I am always going to do what is wrong.” Yet each decision that we make falls into one of the following categories, right decision and wrong decision.  That right and wrong aren’t just any old right and wrong, but instead they are the right and wrong from the perspective of One who is truly able to judge.  This One has the best interest of everyone involved in every situation and so when He looks at a thing and judges,.He judges wisely and righteously.

I’m sure that by now, because of all the capital “H’s” you were able to figure out who He is, but in knowing whom He is there may be a bit of apprehension.  You may be thinking, “How am I supposed to make decisions that God would see as being right?”  Well, there is a way to measure the decisions that are being made.  Just like in this world that we live in there are laws that set standards and tell a person if they are making a right decision or a wrong decision.  There are also spiritual laws that govern the decisions that we make.  Those laws are found in the bible.

This morning, I am amazed by the Lord, His infinite wisdom, and perfect timing.  He is able to meet us right where we are when, we need it the most.  I have found myself faced with some decisions that need to be made.  When thinking of how I should handle myself and the situation, I asked the Lord for His help.  The choice I was thinking to make was a hard one.  One that would, kinda, go against the grain, but I was very comforted in His word when I read Psalms 1:1.

It says Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the ppath of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful.

Why does that comfort me?

The answer is very simple.

Everyone isn’t going to agree with my decision.  I will be blessed; yet people are going to think that I am wrong and say that it should not be done this way, but they are honestly not the ones to judge the situation.  According to the bible, the standard is a holy standard.  One that can only be rightfully judged by the Lord and counseled by those who are in right standing with him;  the righteous, the saved, and the obedient hearer of the word.

I am comforted because it takes courage to stand and choose what is right, but again, it isn’t always easy.  Yet when we are motivated by the love of God and he encourages us with His word, make the choice for righteousness becomes easier.

Today, I would like to challenge you to take a look at your situation and ask the Lord to help you see it the way that He sees it.  Look through the eyes of the Father and come face to face with righteousness.  When you do, you will know “the way” and feel compelled to walk in it.  God won’t make you choose the right way, but instead He will gently guide you as you do what pleases Him most.

Be encouraged by knowing that God smiles upon those who courageously choose to remain in His will by doing what is right.

Don’t Fear, God is on your side!!!
