Be alert and on your guard
Keep your eyes open
Watch
Stand true to what you believe

Stand firm

Be strong
Be of good courage

Stand perfect
Fully assured and complete
In everything willed by God
Do everything in love.

Trust in the Lord
Stand firm on the Rock
The everlasting Rock of ages!

14 Let everything you do be done in love (true love to God and man as inspired by God’s love for us).

One Response to “Stand Firm”

    From ODB:
    Be sure to put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.
    —Abraham Lincoln

    *****

    From Stand or Go?:
    Do circumstances have you trapped? Stand still. Take time to consult God and His Word. Then, using His instructions, move ahead and let God guide you.

    It matters not how dark the way,
    How thick the clouds from day to day,
    God will direct in all we do
    If we take time to pray it through. —Mead

    If you’re looking for guidance, follow Christ as your guide.

    *****
    From Standing in the Fire:
    I’m reminded of that fire every time I read the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. When challenged with the decree to bow to the king or face execution (Dan. 3:10-12), these three bravely faced the fire for the One they loved (vv.16-18). And the Lord stood with them in the flames (v.25).

    When life’s “flames” test us, may those who observe our choices recognize our love for each other and for our God.
