Knowing You are right, why is it still so difficult to stand against the sinful tide of our culture? Why do I desire to blend in so badly or fail to speak up for the one truth everyone needs to know to be saved from certain death? It is simply my unbelief. Like Noah, I am waiting for Your promise to be fulfilled. But unlike him, doubt creeps in and robs my resolve as I wonder if it’s ever going to rain.
You point me to Noah. He showed me a different way. Through intimate relationship with You, God, I can walk with integrity and purpose, even in a world bent on evil. I can be the one who stands with You, who delights in Your approval alone.
Lord, I know the rain will come and I will jump with joy. You never fail. So “strengthen my feeble arms and weak knees” (Hebrews 12:12). Let me be the one who stands out from the crowd and stand in the gap to pray for others (see Ezekiel 22:30), and stand close to You.
* I Seek Truth is written in first person as if you were the one talking to your Heavenly Father.
