Isaiah 41:10

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Recently, I've been complaining that pastors aren't speaking up for what's right. It seems like so many people are just going around people-pleasing and not standing up for the Word of God, or for what the Lord has placed on their hearts.

I was majorly convicted earlier this week.  The Lord was saying to me, "Allyson, if you can't stand up for me now, how do you expect to stand up for me when you have as many people listening to you as those preachers do that you are criticizing."  

Well, I decided I would start to practice what I preach.  I stood up for my beliefs, and guess what!? People disagreed with me!  And I was PUMPED!  
Standing with Jesus is better than standing with the crowd!  Standing up for something is better than being silent! 

Jesus may not always be popular, the message He placed on your heart may not always be accepted. Keep going friends, it's worth it! The message you have may be the message that sets your neighbor free.
