Do you see an injustice?
Than have confidence in God and stand up to them.
I have many times.
You know what; you might be surprised who will stand up with you.
One time in a tree panting camp a foreman was treating rookies very bad.
I stood up to him.
This angered the camp supervisor and he arranged a little show down between his goons and me.
I told them “You may beat me, but I will get back up, spit my blood in your face and kick your buts. When I am right I WILL FIGHT even unto my last breath.”
I was prepared to receive a butt kicking.
I heard a small voice saying: Don’t worry. I am sending you help.” I was expecting a legion of angels to come thundering out of the clouds.
What I didn’t know was that when hearing this many of the other planters quietly moved behind me, a road crew repairing a damaged section of the Alaska Highway joined in.
What started out as fifteen of them against me were now forty of them with me against fifteen of the camp supervisors goons. Now believe these boys were no angels. Ha ha but I believe God moved their hearts to step forward and risk an all out war. We would have all gotten fired as well.
Needless to say the goons quickly backed down. I then TOLD the foreman and camp supervisor to get over here and apologize to these boys or I am coming over there and kick your butt. They had to humble themselves in front of the whole camp.
Later many people came over and mentioned how they admired that I stood up. My reply was that it is the duty of every Christian to stand up and fight for what is right.
“A man dies once, a coward dies many times.” Mexican proverb
And it is so true. Remember: it is our Christian duty to stand up and fight when we see an injustice.
“And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matt. 10:28 New International Version)
“For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart” Hebrews 4:12 (New American Standard Bible).
Prayer: Oh Jehovah Nissi( the Lord is our banner, that means He goes out in front of us when we fight the right fight) I admit sometimes when I see an injustice I tremble in fear. Please give me a strong and courageous heart that has faith You will be right there with me, like David. A faith and ambition like Paul’s . In the name of the mighty warrior king Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
