It can be really hard to stand up for God, can’t it? What do you do, when all your friends are making choices to not follow after God? How do you stand up for what’s right when it feels like you’re the only one?
The main thing you can do is to be strong in your relationship with God. You should be desiring to spend time in His presence and in His word. Guard your relationship with God more than anything else.
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. – 1 Corinthians 16:13 (NIV)
Today’s verse tells us to stand firm in the faith. That means standing when it feels like you’re all alone. It means that you might have to say no to some things that aren’t godly things and be different than the majority. And that takes courage.
It’s not always easy standing up for God and for truth, but it is the right thing to do. So determine in your heart that you’re not going to be swayed by peer pressure. Instead, look to God, and let your relationship with Him hold you strong when it feels like you’re all alone.
