“Declare these things; exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregard you” (Titus 2:15).
Why is there always a battle to get things done? Why are there those who will disregard what is right? It is the way of this rebellious world. Stand firm and hold fast to the truth you have been given. When you speak the Gospel, you need never be timid, but speak with authority, for it is the word of God.
Lord, I am constantly fighting through this world which contradicts and resists You. Grant me the faith to hold fast to Your word and what You would have me to do. Guide me, Lord, so that I would now and always live out Your Gospel of love. Help me in every time of need to look to You, for You alone can help me navigate through those situations when others are disregarding what is right and true.
Lord Jesus, You know what it is to be disregarded. You were constantly harassed. Guide me, Lord, through this day in order that I would hold fast to what You have taught me as well as proclaim with my life and actions the truth of Your Gospel. Lead me, Lord, as You know I need to be. Help me to see through the fog of this age. Help me be bold in speech and firm in action for Your sake. Amen.
