Take Your Stand in Faith!
“For freedom, Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” Galatians 5:1
When you are set apart for God’s special task, you become noted in the kingdom of darkness as a threat to their territory. However, little do they know that you are not alone, but God is with you because you are precious. Yet, the strategy to fulfill destiny is when you stand upright with God without falling into the devil’s temptation. That’s why Ephesians 6:14 says, “Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness.”
The devil tried to kill the children of Israelites and destroy them all so that the prophecy about Jesus Christ would not come true. For many years many Kings, emperors, and Neighboring countries have tried their best to subdue the people of Israel. But they fail miserably to accomplish this feat because only faith in God will bring salvation to those who believe in Him.
Ephesians 6:16 says, “In all circumstances, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one.”
As Christians, you might be suffering from the grip of the enemy today because of the promises of God over your life, but I want to assure you that God is with you in your struggle. It does not matter who gangs up against you; remember to take your stand in the promises of God over your life. Don’t give the devil chance to win your heart, instead take your stand. Don’t allow peer pressure to stop you from doing what God has called you to do. It is better to stand alone with God in faith than to stand with the majority of the crowd living in fear and doubt.
Remember, if you don’t take your stand and fight for what you believe today, you may fall for anything tomorrow. Therefore, I pray you will not fall into disgrace in Jesus’ name. Amen. The Lord has given you the power to dominate and possess your possession, therefore don’t negotiate with the devil or get into a relationship with him; he is a liar. Instead, put on the righteousness of God and stand. Ephesians 6:14 says, “Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness.”
1. Jesus, as I am deciding to stand for you today, pray for me that I might not fall in Jesus’ name.
2. I will not fall into temptation. I will not fall into sin. But I will stand up in Christ to possess my possession in Jesus’ name. Amen.
