Hello World…No Condemnation….

There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus.  Romans 8:1

What does that mean, you ask?  Well, I asked that same question once and the answer I received saved my life. 

I drew a line in the sand of time and life. I changed a happening into a challenge that comes to all people….from friends who tempt you to pull away from God. Your co-workers, who encourage you to ignore company policy, people who ridicule you for your stand with right and think it is ok to do it just a little bit.  God took notice of the stand I took just like he took notice of the stand Daniel took when he was taken into exile, when he was taken away from his family at a young age and put into the service of a Babylonian King who did not know God ,,,  But Daniel knew, foreign land or not, God was with him and he stood up for what he believed and let God be God in a foreign land when he defied the order not to pray. He opened his windows wide and bow before his God and prayed as he always had done. He drew a line in the sand and took a stand and continued to worship his Lord and Savior in spite of a decree that said he would die if he prayed.     Daniel 6:10

Sometimes we wonder if drawing a line in the sand makes us look stupid, silly or weak in the eyes of those around us.  Guess what! It does not —  Actually the opposite is true.  God grows you stronger and more attractive to those around you every time you take a stand in His favor.   When you honor Him, you receive the favor of God and He honors you with more wisdom and more knowledge and more understanding in  WHO HE IS and you grow in grace.

I pray that the Lord teach you and empower you to be a faithful and obedient witness to His honor and glory each day.  Time is short, no matter how old you are…. 

Stand for something or you will fall for anything…
