For we would not, brethren, have you
ignorant of our trouble which came to us
in Asia, that we were pressed out of
measure, above strength, insomuch that
we despaired even of life: But we had
the sentence of death in ourselves, that
we should not trust in ourselves, but in
God which raiseth the dead: Who
delivered us from so great a death, and
doth deliver: in whom we trust that he
will yet deliver us.
2 Corinthians 1:8-10

|Do you ever felt like no one is on your side? As LEOs we have to be good at letting things roll off our backs
because it seems like we are often criticized from a lot of different directions. We all know that it's not
uncommon to lose a case because a jury chose to believe something the defense attorney attacked us on, to
get into trouble with a supervisor over a complaint, to be chewed out by a soccer mom because she was at
fault in an accident, and to be served with a frivolous lawsuit; ALL IN ONE DAY. These are things we
willingly accept as part of the job, but wouldn't it be nice to know that there was always someone in your
corner? Hopefully we can count on our spouse, family, and fellow LEOs to be behind us, but there is one who
we can always count on, Jesus Christ.
In today's verse, David said "the Lord is on my side". Think about that a minute, if you have received
Christ as your Savior, then the God of the Universe is on your side, He is for you! If we can allow this
verse to penetrate our daily way of thinking, it will transform our lives. It's easy to create an image in our
minds of what we think God is like, and it normally involves a God who is easily angered by our actions, and
is ready to strike us with lightning at the smallest mistake on our part, but that is far from what He is
truly like. Yes, God hates sin, and yes, He will send correction for stubborn disobedience, but He does so as
a loving Father.
Can you sense David's boldness? He said " I will not fear: what can man do unto me?" If we will only realize
the magnitude of this verse then we too could ask the same question, what can man do unto me? The answer
to this question is that man can only do what God will allow them to do to us. Does this mean things always
turn out the way we want them to? NO! Nor is this is a green light to rush into situations alone where
backup is needed. We still need to use good tactics, and we still need to be careful, but at the same time
those who know Christ as Savior should have confidence that as we carry out our duties in a wise and godly
manner, that we have the power of Heaven on our side. More importantly, this verse should also empower us
to boldly live out our faith and stand unashamedly for our Lord.
