When we lift up the Lord before the world and acknowledge Him with our words and actions, these are acts of worship. We trust Him and Him alone for our health and our wealth and we don’t hide this as it is our witness before the people of the world who see that our ways and thoughts are very different from theirs.

Just as in the days of Daniel there is an image that the entire world is being asked to bow and submit to. It is a counterfeit of divine health. The drugs that are being offered to the entire planet simultaneously hold a promise that the discernment of our spirit says is false.

We always have choices to make. To stand up or stand down. To speak or remain silent. The issues of our day are many. Abortion, gender, family, and health are key parts of the foundation of our faith. The Holy Spirit will always witness to the truth. The choice before us is do we give expression to that inner voice or do we bow to the voice of the world. Both are acts of worship. No one can have two masters.

Proverbs 1:22-23 “Foolish ones, how much longer will you cling to your deception? How much longer will you mock wisdom, you cynical scorners who fight the facts? Come back to your senses and be restored to reality. Don’t even think about refusing my rebuke! Don’t you know that I’m ready to pour out my spirit of wisdom upon you and bring to you the revelation of my words that will make your heart wise?”

In the great history of our nation many died for what some of us are now willing to give away without a fight. Defining moments lie ahead for each of us. Will we bow to the demands of the world and give away the sovereignty of our families and our bodies to this new world order or will we put on the whole armor of God and stand our ground. I can’t speak for you, but I stand in this hour of testing as the three Hebrew boys of Daniel stood. I don’t know how far the Lord will allow things to go but be it known to my brothers and sisters in Christ and to the powers that be in the world. Me and my house will serve the Lord and we will not comply, concede, or consent. We will not bow before the kings of this world and allow their image to be injected into us. We look forward to meeting the Lord in the fire of this circumstance. To God be the Glory.
