Day 37- Power to Make a Choice

Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.” But the people said nothing.  ~1 Kings 18:21

Have you ever been silent when you should have spoken up for what was right?  Have you ever been more fearful of what people would think that you remained silent about sin?  Ahab had over four hundred of Baal’s prophets and Elijah was the only one standing for the Lord, yet He stood boldly knowing that God was with him.  Although it appeared that Elijah was outnumbered by unbelievers he served the only true and living God.

As servants of the Most High God, we are never outnumbered.  God wants you and me to be different and willing to stand up against evil.  It is by the power of the Holy Spirit that we can have the courage to stand against evil.  Jesus told the early church to wait until the Comforter came. He said that when He came He would give them power to be a witness.

If you find that you are not standing up for the truth.  If in your heart you really are for God, but sometimes you are afraid to let others know; worried about what they may think of you, it’s very possible that you need to tarry.  Simply seek God and ask Him for the power to choose Him; the power to choose what is right.  He gives good and perfect gifts, and surely He will give you the power of the Holy Spirit.  Also read Acts 2
