STAND UP FOR YOURSELF
So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.
Galatians 6:9-10 NLT
The Bible teaches us to do good to all people and to treat everyone right whenever we have the opportunity. Unlikely other religion that teaches their followers to hate their enemies our Bible teaches us to love our enemies.
In our daily walk with the Lord, some people may take advantage of us when they see we are good to them. They may tend to leave every heavy burden to us and even offend us purposely expecting that we will end up forgiving them. There are some Christians who are being bullied in the work place; because they are too humble even to stand for themselves.
The Bible says Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth, Numbers 12:3. Although Moses was humble but he knew to stand for himself and stand for his nation of Israel. He didn't allow anyone to intimidate him and take advantage of his good heart and humbleness.
This morning, I want to encourage you to continue doing good to people; but also learn to stand up for yourself, and stand for the truth of the Gospel. Read the Scriptures, and engage yourself in serious prayers; that you may practice the authority that you have given in Christ. Don't let people toss you around with their different ideologies; but make sure you know your position in Christ.
You need to treat everyone right as the Bible teaches us; but make sure that you are not bullied or being taken advantage. Ask God to give you wisdom that you may know how to treat each person in your life and answer them in a right way.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, I give myself to You. Give me wisdom that I may know how to treat and answer everyone who comes in my life according to your will. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
