Rehab made a stand for God in heaven resulting in some hard choices.
"I know that the LORD has given you the land,
By faith Rahab the harlot did not perish along with those who were disobedient,
Rahab decided to be on the Lord’s side. She believed in the God of the spies! By welcoming the spies, she and her family were spared, while her disobedient neighbors died.
From heaven’s viewpoint, it always pays to be on the Lord’s side! On earth it may mean trouble. What did it mean for her? Standing against her country, flying her colors from her house, and living! That was great faith. What happened to her prostitution? I’d like to think she stepped away from it because she now had the living God. The Bible doesn’t say.
How’s your faith today? Where do you need to stand? Is it hard to make a stand? Probably. But great faith is rewarded wherever it is found! God is pleased when we trust Him! This life is so short. Stand up, stand up for Jesus!
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for,
Stand up, stand up for Jesus, the strife will not be long;
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
