Standing Against All Odds

“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore . . .” 

~ Ephesians 6:13-14

If your foundations are in Jesus Christ, then you can weather the storm. You can endure the crisis. You can walk through the fire. Because you are standing on Him who is the immovable Rock.

Sometimes God will deliver you from trouble. Other times He will deliver you through it.

But resurrection is always on the other side . . . if you stand and endure.

A spiritual (Spirit-led) man or woman is someone who has faced tragedy, who has faced loss, who has looked unbearable and exquisite pain in the face and the worst that life can throw at a human . . . and they have stood their ground.

With their garments still smoking, they have said before God, mortals, and angels: “It is well with my soul. The enemy has thrown his best at me and I’m still here. I’m still on the Rock. I’ve not sunk. I’m still standing. I’ve not been destroyed. I’ve not gone under. I will continue to follow my Lord, come hell or Hiawatha. He is still on the throne!”

Having done all, stand. Stand therefore . . . on the Rock that never moves.

Be encouraged, dear child of God. If the Lord is for you . . . who can be against you?

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

~ Winston Churchill
