Stand Firm

Danny’s first visit by a physical therapist involved a belt. It was so colorful. It reminded me of a belt Danny had in the 70’s. The therapist put it around Danny and then they stood up together. Huge victory! He was standing firm.

I now find myself having to stand firm. And I realize that it’s in the big mountains of life where we learn to stand the most firmly.

Oh beloved, this is no ordinary day. This is the day when you can stand firm in your faith. You can stand for righteousness. You can stand against evil. And you can stand firm in the truth even when you’re going through things. This mountain you’re climbing right now is not your undoing it is your place of victory because you are going to stand firm.

With the belt of truth around your waist you will not succumb to the lies of the enemy. You will not fall when adversity comes. And things will not fall apart because they’re held in place with the truth.

God loves you and he is for you. Jesus is with you and Holy Spirit is within you. This is just what you were born for. You will not faint in this day of adversity you will stand. His power is working in you to do exploits and live securely. Praise the Lord for His belt of truth as you stand in the Light of His victorious word.

Ephesians 6: 14  “Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place”

I Peter 5: 9  “But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world.”

John 16: 33  “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”

Philippians 4: 13  “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.”

Galatians 5: 1  “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”
