Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by his vast strength. Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the tactics of the devil. Ephesians 6:10
Today as I did my morning walk – inclined to enjoy some gospel music. One of my favorite songs “stand” poured into my ears. I began to think of how we are called to stand – not of our own strength but the vast strength of God. We are called to the truth – such as wearing a belt around our waist. That is what holds all things together. We stand with a shield of faith – nothing aimed at you shall prosper. We can trust in the word – that flourishes within – shall make you strong in everything – like a mighty warrior ready for battle.
Today stand in faith holding close to the voice and direction of God who holds you securely in the palms of his hands. In your standing you will gain understanding and appreciation for him who will complete every good work he has begun in you. Stand!
