And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?
The Lord says, ‘Do not doubt my call on your life.’ He has you in just the right place, at just the right time.
He has called you, so don’t live in indecision and uncertainty. Listen to His words for your situation. And when you are in difficult circumstances He will give you the right words to say, just when you need them.
He will stand with you when all seem to have walked away. He will be your guardian, your guide, your strength. Only be true to His word and His ways, His pattern for living, His heart. Don’t compromise in this situation, don’t change things to “fit in” with the world’s ways. Don’t be afraid – even if a storm comes He will shelter you. Don’t feel isolated, He is there with you.
And so you will bear testimony to me. But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
