Survival mode settings

My life constantly hangs in the balance, but I will not stop obeying your instructions. Ps. 119:109

Survival mode seems to have two settings: self-preservation or God-dependence. Self-preservation sometimes invites moral compromise and social manipulation. Surrendering the outcome to God and walking through the situation in peace and grace might make us appear weak or illogical to others, but God’s principles don’t exist to make us look strong and smart. They exist because God is strong and smart.

Lord, when things gets dangerous and desperate help me to hold on to Your truth instead of my pride.
