Keep Standing Strong
written by: Sandy Blaser, Healing Rain to the Nations
Yes, The world seems to be growing mighty strange at a rapid pace! But let us keep in mind…We may live in a world of turmoil, but we are not of this world! For we serve Almighty God, The Divine Creator of The Universe and all that it contains! Hummm…then surely that means our God is greater than any of the world’s problems!
“Be alert and sober minded. For your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:8) Therefore, I urge you to prepare yourself “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.” (1 Corinthians 16:13)
Yes I admit it’s kinda hard to not go on what you see, hear or feel…Seems the ole enemy is always quick to insert doubt and fear. But God’s Word says….”Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (But be wise!) (John 14:27) That’s why it’s so important to keep standing strong in Faith by reading the Bible, imbedding God’s promises deep into your spirit. Do you know God is always with you! I find talking and listening to the Lord all through the day does wonders to strengthen your prayer life. And one thing I really have to practice is guarding the devils play-ground…my mind, by choosing to think on good, pure and lovely things! It helps to keep Praise and Worship Music going all through the day. Did you know our Prayers and our Worship are our weapons of mass destruction against the devil?! I encourage you to use your heavenly weapons!!
So yes, it is possible to live a Victorious Christian life in this crazy messed up world. For we “Live by faith, not by sight,” yet taking a bold and courageous stand for what is right in the eyes of the Lord. (2 Corinthians 5:7)
So as you continue this journey homeward “May the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7)
Remember fear doesn’t stand a chance when you’re standing strong in the everlasting Love of Christ!!
