I have a vendor who can be very overpowering in personality.  This person does not

Walk in truth and not lies

hesitate to try and exert influence to accomplish their will.  This can be so overwhelming that it is easy to feel bullied at times.

Through the process of our acquaintance, I have had to learn to stand up for myself and my department.

This means saying no, when it is not feasible and sticking to my decision, no matter how much this individual would like to strong arm me to change my decision. I have had to learn to stand in my own truth and stand up for myself through the process of knowing this individual.

What truth is God whispering on your heart?

Jesus had many followers, but he also had many who wanted to destroy him.  Jesus spoke only words of truth.

Jesus was willing to stand up for what was right and to stand up to those who longed to strong arm him to do what was their will.  Jesus could not be swayed, tempted or bribed.  He went against the most powerful leaders of the day to end corruption, thievery and extortion.  When he turned over the money tables in the temple, he further angered and alienated the Pharisees and Sadducees.

Walking in truth and standing up for what is right is not always easy and definitely not popular in the world we live in today.   But, Jesus said “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”   {John 8:31-32}

Do you stand in your own truth?  Do you ask Jesus to help you stand in his word?
