Isaiah 51:7 ” Hear Me, you who know what is right, you people who have My laws in your hearts: Do not fear the reproach of men or be terrified by their insults.”

The world doesn’t understand the trust Christians have in Jesus Christ…to them it is utter craziness.  They view Christians as weak-willed people using religion as a crutch.  So why wouldn’t the world mock us?  It’s at that point though  we have to make a decision of whether to allow the insults to discourage us or not.  Elsewhere in Isaiah it says, “Because the Sovereign Lord helps me, I will not be disgraced.  Therefore have I set my face like flint, and I know I will not be put to shame.” (Isaiah 50:7).  Any and all fear can be faced with trust in the Lord.
