Moral strength

Do you feel pressured to embark on a course you know is wrong? "Circumstances leave me no choice," you may say. "If I don't lower my standards, I'll lose out on career advancement, business profits, or social acceptance."

But you don't have to do it. God's power is at hand to shore you up with the strength of character you need. The Scriptures abound with accounts of hope regained and victories won through reliance on God's great love. God promises, "Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness" (Isa. 41:10).

You and I are God's offspring, His image and likeness, as the Bible reveals. Our actual being is spiritual, perfect, uninterruptedly reflecting the Father. Whatever the moral conflict may involve, anyone can turn to Him for help in resolving it. His tenderly patient care is always available to all His children.
