All heaven is applauding when I get in trouble for speaking the truth of the government of God. God is God and in control. I am in good company when I am put down for making his rule known. God is light and shines truth on us all. I can’t hide His light. I can’t pretend He isn’t in control.
How often, though, am I considering what others will think if I speak the truth in love? God has a goal for us to speak the truth about Him and His government. He is in a good mood and wants us to let others know about it. It may make them uncomfortable. That is OK.
May I speak the truth and seek our Father’s approval and not others.
Not only that—you will be more than happy every time people put you down or throw you out or speak lies about you to discredit me. What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and they are uncomfortable. You can be glad when that happens—give a cheer, even!—for though they don’t like it, I do! And all heaven applauds. And know that you are in good company. My prophets and witnesses have always gotten into this kind of trouble. Matthew 5:1-12
