Stand Firm

Philippians 1:28 Don’t be intimidated in any way by your enemies. 

Some of us have an endless list of problems confronting us. Circumstances surrounding us that cannot be easily resolved. Issues that have haunted us for far too long. Enemies or opponents that have constantly niggled us. Now, we read in the Bible “Don’t be intimidated.”

Fear of what we are up against can be terrifying. Which, if left undealt with can cause us to give in to hopelessness and fall back into our old ways of acting and reacting.  Giving in to despair can maroon us.

Faith believes in the Lord Jesus. The armies of Heaven are considerably greater than any force man can muster. Meaningful support is guaranteed when we are prepared to trust God. My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!  God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.”  Psalms 121:2 ~ Hebrews 13:5  What a valuable promissory note of spiritual encouragement. Even when we don’t have what it takes, God does. As long as we give our wills and lives to him and let Him lead we can depend on Him to help us to stand Firm.
