“Will ye contend for God...” (Job 13:8)
We too often bring God down to our own level by thinking that we will take up for Him, like a big brother would for his weaker sibling! God needs not our weak defense, and we need not think ourselves to be the protector of Him, or His cause! Who do we make ourselves out to be? Our duty, indeed, our greatest joy, is to serve Him, and allow Him to fight for us! Jude tells us to “contend for the faith”, but one need not contend for God Himself, He is able to do all that needs to be done, and more! We contend, then to keep our faith, and not allow ourselves to falter under the subtleties of unbelief. Besides that, we seldom do the right thing for the situation. Let God be God, and every man a liar and a rogue.
