Persecution– Is More and More What We Find

Image result for guilty by association with god

As I watch “God’s Not Dead 2” tonight,
several thoughts came to my mind.
For this kind of persecution…
is more and more what we find.
For even within families…
conflicts about Christ grow…
when one seeks a relationship…
and others think they already know.
But just knowing He exists…
is different than walking in faith…
and walking in obedience to Him…
no matter what persecution we take.
For there are many who don’t believe…
then others just seek Him on Sundays…
but what about those in a relationship…
who want to do as He says always.
Will we still walk in obedience…
if our families tell us NO?
Or will we do as He tells us…
and go where He tells us to go.
Will we stand strong in our faith…
with His small, still voice we hear…
or will we back down with persecution…
and then retreat from it in fear.
Now God wants us to be strong…
and stand on His Word each day…
and He will always be with us…
and protect us along the way.
For He wants us to choose Him first…
above what families and jobs require.
For He is our First Love….
and wants to be our own Heart’s Desire.
So when the world comes against you…
or families and friends furn their back…
just remember Who you are associated with…
and don’t be fearful of any attack.
For persecution and fear are coming…
but just trust God instead…
as we stand strong in our faith…
trusting God for He is not dead!

Dear Lord, help us to stand firm in faith with You amidst all the persecution to come. Empower us Holy Spirit to walk in obedience without fear, trusting You with our lives, no matter the outcome. Give us the strength and the courage to walk the path that You have called us to, holding onto You, not man or even families or jobs, for only You are the Key to overcoming all that we will face in the years to come… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  1. 34“Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35“For I came to SET A MAN AGAINST HIS FATHER, AND A DAUGHTER AGAINST HER MOTHER, AND A DAUGHTER-IN-LAW AGAINST HER MOTHER-IN-LAW; 36 and A MAN’S ENEMIES WILL BE THE MEMBERS OF HIS HOUSEHOLD. (Matthew 10:34-36)

    It is true. We may have to choose God even over those of our own household. But take heart, for we may influence one of them to God’s side. And if not, we will gain far more than we lose by standing with the Lord…

    And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for the sake of My name will receive a hundredfold and will inherit eternal life. (Matthew 19:29)
