“For you bless the righteous, O LORD; you cover him with favor as with a shield” Psalms 5:12, ESV.
One day my husband had to make an important decision to leave his job due to corruption in top management. It was tough for him because his love for his coworkers had grown. Even though they behaved like heathens, he loved them as brothers. He turned down their advances to watch pornography at work. He turned down their invitations to drink alcohol. He wouldn’t curse with them or gossip, but was still able to be a friend and tell them about the Lord. When the moment of truth came, and they wanted him to lie. He said, “No, I will have no part in it.” And as he spoke with his supervisor, I listened in on the conversation and my heart remembers every word said. “Due to the dishonesty in the management, I can no longer work here. We don’t have to lie in order to get an extra buck. We can do things right and honor God, and He will bless us. Anytime you lie, it always catches up with you…” His words were filled with love, and his eyes were full of tears. His voice was stern, and his stance was firm. I’ve never been more attracted to him. After the conversation, I told him how proud I was of him and kissed his head.
The time will come when you will have to make a bold stand for the Lord, no matter the outcome. Do what you know in your heart is the right thing to do and pray that God leads your every step and fills your mouth with what to say. Remember, if you stay true to what’s right, God will bless you and make you a great blessing. You will not lack. He will supernaturally provide for you and your family. He will cover you with His favor. He will make a powerful statement to those around you that He is real and true.
Let’s pray. Father God, thank you for giving us the heart and mind to do what’s right. Help us to make a stand for you no matter where we are. If something’s not right, help us be courageous enough to say no. Help us stand for righteousness and honor you with our lives. As we do, we trust you to comfort our hearts and provide all that we need. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
(Read Philippians 4:19; Psalms 1)

This was an awesome message that we all need to take to heart in when to stand up for God. I pray that God will give us a spirit to discern not to go along we bad behavior, despite how people may feel. When we don’t take part in gossip at work it shows that we are more mature enough to know that’s wrong, and that gossip is a sin. Thank God for giving us the heart and mind on when to say no.
I agree, IN JESUS PRECIOUS MIGHTY NAME. AMEN AMEN AMEN
Father I’m asking you to help me to always stand for what is right and ,for the truth. Lord when that time come for me to take that bold stand, give me your strength to do so. Lord help me do what is right at all times.Lord I choose not to have (No part in it.). In Jesus Christ name.
I stepped out on faith! I had a high paying job and good benefits, but things were not right at my place of employment. I now have a part time with half the pay and feel wonderful, God has provided me and my husband with what we need and our Lord has never let us down and provides our every need. God is faithful all we have to do is just have faith and trust in his word. I love you Heavenly Father God, I love you Jesus Christ, I love you Holy Ghost.
A wonderful testimony for the body of Christ during these times where corruption and lawlessness is considered to be right. Where human rights are placed above the Word of God and where everyone seems to have their own truths. Thank you God bless you I bet he got a much better proposition and walks in God’s favour.
l agree totally with u sis Zebi. like Elijah the prophet, it is great to know that in the midst of moral decay n corruption there are still others who will not bow to baal. We will keep on keeping on, for He who has began a good work in us is faithful to accomplish it. You will end well !!!
Father your word is a blessing indeed. We’re clothed with your truth; give us your spirit of obedience and please help us to do what is right at all times in your sight in Jesus Name…Amen 🙏

I was just mediating on the Rosary when I thought of the action of Pontios Pilate’s wife. In the movie the Son of God, God reveled to her the vision of what was about to happen. He’s us unfairly being crucified, she shared the knowledge with her husband. When the day came pontius response was along the lines of we are already in hot water with ceaser we need to do this or lose the lifestyle.
It came to me and I questioned about the times I’ve been in pontius Pilate’s wife position and my response. I just want you follow sister to think about it too.
Thank you for today for the Lord has revealed to me to let anything that I know is not of his will go. It’s not enough to study and know his will but we have to live his will and apply it in every area of our life. Total submission to God is Loving God and living out the commandments Jesus gave us to love the Lord our God with all our heart soul and strength.
Amen❗ GOD is SO GOOD💯 Thank you for sharing this Beautiful as well as Powerful message 👐 it totally reminds me of one of my favorite verses Psalm 37:25 👉 I have been young and I have been old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken nor begging 🍞 bread💝🙌❗hallelujah🎉🎉OUR GOD IS AWESOME🙏🙏🙏🎁
Going through something similar on my job, but can’t afford to quit. I have asked for a transfer, but was told that they were having a problem with getting someone else to fill my position. I cry out to the Father daily. I don’t have away but I know that GOD has one.
I’am still waiting.
Amen I needed this message.
Dear sister PML I know this is a tough one but God either has a better one elsewhere or wants You to shine your light there. Either way you have to trust Him. Stay in the Word and on your knees. Dear Father thank You that You care so much for us that even the hair on our head is counted by You. Father I ask in the name of Your Son Jesus to intervene here supernaturally. Please help her and show her very clear what to do. She wants to honour You in all her ways because You are worthy to receive all the honour and praise. We fear You and revere Your name. Thank You that You are the same yesterday today and forever and want just the best for us. We trust You and wait patiently for Your will to be done. Amen

In agreement with your prayer , I surrender all.
DOTK, thank you for sharing this story. I was in the same stituation at my job. After more than 20 years of service, I was harassed, threatened and disrespectd. I couldn’t afford an attorney so I had to quit my job. I became very depressed. I didn’t know how I was going to make it or pay my bills. I prayed about it and I turned it over to God. God is fighting my battles and taking care of my every need. I’m so grateful that God took me out of that toxic environment. I pray for those that are still in it. Living in truth will set you free. Thank you Heavenly Father for your love and guidance. Many blessings to all of.
Sisters, it pays to be truthful in our dealings as children of the light.
Shun evil and be good always. The grace of God has been released on us. Amen
Amen! Thank You LORD , You are wonderful .
God bless ur husband for the stance he took. A good example to all of us and whether he knows it or not he is soooo respected by the people at that job. And someone will come to know Jesus because ur husband lived by his convictions.
The message is encouraging…I was recently laid off in March 2015..God has provided work as a contractor in various positions..I am still seeking for permanent placement and believing God will put me in the right place at the right time….Praising God inspite of the challenges of uncomfortableness, uncertainty in the workplace…
Father give me the strength and integrity to do what is right in your sight and not just please man everyday of my life. Amen
