I protect those who stand rightly. Although many might come against, I support those who call upon My Name and stand in My righteousness. Even threat of death, or the shedding of blood will not move those who have their faith in My right hand, in the precepts of righteousness that have been written before all time, and will exist through all eternity. As you interact with those who do not believe, you must not be tricked, for they do not know Me, nor My ways. Their actions are not acceptable for you, although it would appear they are not condemned. My precepts are for My children; you are set aside, holy for my purpose. You are called to touch others differently with My light of truth. Walk steadfast in what you know is right and good, and do not waiver. With respect and love, stand in what you know is right. I will be with you. Do not judge the short response (the short-term consequence), but that of years. Such steadfastness is rewarded. In love and honor stand.
Psalm 55:22 (ESV) – Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; He will never permit the righteous to be moved.
Bottom Line: In the world of work and business, there are many grey areas of ethical behavior. It can be difficult to do or say the right thing when there is much pressure pushing you in the wrong direction. God expects us to stand up for what we know is right; He will back us up. Even if it means short-term pain for a time, He will make up for it in the years to come…if you have the strength to stand, and persevere, as His Word works through you.
