One of the costs of standing up is being the first to be potentially smeared and attacked!
This is why not too many people in your midst will ever stand up for anything because they do not want to deal with the repercussions rocking the boat.
Too many of us love to posture as though we are one to stand up and hit the ground running when the first sign of confrontation with the enemy comes! They have showed you first hand what their faith is made of!
Not me, I am a boat rocker and will always be that one who will challenge the powers that be when I sense any foul play or wrong doing. Someone has to do it and the bottom line is that if more of us stood together in a fearless fashion, we would obliterate most of the abuse of power that comes from those to whom the people have given the power to!
Too many of us are have compromised our divine power because of our carnal lusts for the material things of this world. We know right from wrong but are afraid to speak up on our jobs against any wrongdoing because we might lose those very same jobs and the money that maintains the lifestyles that we happen to enjoy.
We are afraid to speak up on the foolishness that we see in Jesus name in these churches because we feel that we will be considered a troublemaker or lose a potential position in the choir especially when we were foolishly taught to “touch not thine annointed!”
What kind of punks have we become?
Here we are made by the mightiest being in the universe and backed by His promise of perpetual victory time and time again, yet we cower at the thought of some trivial confrontation at the hands of a mere man!
You are to fear NO MAN!
Respect your peers and treat them with honor but fear NO ONE!
Always stand up for what’s right even when it may be something that would be easy to avoid. You must know that YOU are the representative of your God and MUST do as He would in every moment of your walk in this life! Anything else would be considered a sin!
Be that one who puts all others to shame by doing the right thing to yourself and your community. Too many of us are directly responsible for the deterioration of our very same neighborhoods while blaming the White man for everything that goes wrong around us while we peep out of our venetian blinds not doing what we are supposed to as conscious individuals of the entire human family!
It may not always be the most comfortable thing to stand up but in the end you would be rewarded with a more heightened sense of purpose and strength as a direct gift from God Himself because you trusted in His backup in order to stand up in the first place.
So do not ever be influenced by those who punk out, that’s the easy road to travel. They weak cowards will never be known for starting a movement of note, the only movement that they will ever be known for is a bowel movement when the going gets tough! Never forget that!
Are you backed by God or ruled by fear?
Both spirits cannot occupy the same space at the same time so if you are scared to make a move to challenge the powers that be then you don’t have any God in you!
