#450 - I Need to Stand Up for Myself
Volume 2 - Prayers to Love Our Neighbor
Dear Father, I get pushed around. I get walked on. I'm not going to take it anymore. I need to fight back. I need to defend myself. I need to stand up for myself. Father, what a fool I am. Standing up for myself feeds the rebellion in my heart. I am not the center of the universe. You are. Father, I am to stand up for you. Not myself. I'm to stand up for You in my family. I'm to stand up for You in my community. I'm to stand up for You at my work. I'm to stand up for You with my friends. My life isn't about me. It's about You. Focusing on taking a stand for myself is evidence that I have a rebellious heart. Am I forgotten in this equation? No. Taking a stand for You is always in my best interests. You take care of those who are obedient to You and who seek to honor You. When I take a stand for You, You will take a stand for me. Father, forgive me. Help me surrender to You today. Give me the courage to dig in my heels, to stand up tall, and to fight back when it is Your honor that is being questioned. Amen.
