God calls us to STAND APART. Proverbs 1:15,16 “My children, do not go along with them, do not set foot on their paths, for their feet rush into sin..”
This is a DIFFICULT calling. You’ll get pressured and endure relational stress. It is more convenient to compromise your convictions. MOST DO. I don’t want to and if I’m a good guesser, neither do you. I stumbled across a passage in a moment of struggle. It SET my feet back under me and STRENGTHENED my stance. It’s a powerful insight found in the eighth verse of chapter sixteen in the book of Psalm. “I know The Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for He is right beside me.” What’s the take away? Whats the insight that is so empowering? We may stand apart but WE WILL NEVER STAND ALONE!
