It’s easy to stand firm when everyone around you is standing firm. However, what kind of standing power do you have when your convictions are challenged and tested? How do you stand when everything and everyone around you is bending and compromising? In these times, we may be tempted to change because of the fear of criticism, rejection or loss. Sacrificing the standards of God to please others will keep us from the fullness of His plans for our lives.
As believers, we hold fast to our convictions no matter the circumstances. (Hebrews 10:23-24) Pleasing God should be our highest priority.
