Conviction is not always easy, but it is what we need today. Like Daniel in the Old Testament, we need to be willing to trust God and step into the conviction He has given regardless of whether or not we can predict the outcome. Take some time to consider where you draw your convictions. Ask God to reveal to you any ways in which you have latched on to false bravado and allow the Holy Spirit to renew your convictions through the living and active Word.
