Today is our Faith Clinic Praise the Living Jesus… Alleluia… I read it somewhere that “Faith make you look stupid …until it starts raining… do you have such a faith as this?

That a daunting faith…even when the picture is not looking okay… even when everything is not look reassuring … you refuse to be moved… because the One that promised is able to do to it… so you are calm and calculated… someone shout a believing alleluia!!!!!!!!!!

Beloveth… we have an interested story from us to learn from below … What do you understand by “Principle”  what do you know to be Expediency… .. As a child of God which will you adopt in the place of storm, crisis, and instability …often what we do in place of disappointment, crisis, storms, or instability may not align with the Word of God.  

Principle Or Expediency?

Which do you choose when your survival is at stake: Principle or Expediency?

Expediency… of course! Isn’t survival the name of the game? Few of us, after all, have the “gift” of martyrdom!

Only a fool would die for a principle… Unless he had grasped the fact that a holy God will ultimately hold him accountable for his actions:

Follow the ways of your heart and whatever your eyes see, but know thatGod will bring you to judgment.” (Ecclesiastes 11:9b)

The other evening my wife and I were interacting with a couple whose business is in a free fall. As we discussed options to rescue their company, it became apparent that without batting an eye they had already chosen a path for survival that was in clear violation of Biblical values.

Patently, they had opted for EXPEDIENCY OVER PRINCIPLE.

In reflecting on this couple’s unwillingness to trust God in a time of crisis, I was reminded of Christ’s question:

When the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8b)

I wonder.

Because, when push comes to shove, only a man with a deep abiding faith in God and His promises would even consider choosing PRINCIPLE OVER EXPEDIENCY.

Daniel was one such man, as he chose to live a Biblically principled life amidst unprincipled, hostile pagans. Often his decisions were made at great personal risk:

The administrators and the satraps (governors) tried to find grounds for charges against Daniel in his conduct of government affairs, but they were unable to do so. They could find no corruption in him, because he was trustworthy and neither corrupt nor negligent.” (Daniel 6:4)

Like Daniel, we are confronted daily with choices between PRINCIPLE OR EXPEDIENCY.

How we choose will be determined by whom we trust and fear the most:

God or man.

Beloveth, have you answered the question above? … God can never forget, or let go of you.. if you trust in Him… even in the crisis situation or storm God is Faithful….

We must choose Him over every circumstance… May God help us in Jesus Name…
