#3240 – Keep Standing

Good morning people who refuse to give in to the intimidation of the enemy

Matthew 24:12-13 NIV Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.

This is a challenging and even sobering verse, yet there is great hope and victory as well.

Yes, the days are evil and there is much going on in our world that is wicked. To deny these facts is folly, but equally to be overwhelmed with fear and dread is not the Believer’s mandate.

Jesus suffered much and laid down His life as part of the fulfilment of His Father’s plan for Him and for us.

We are called to do the same. We might not physically lay down our lives, (although this is happening more than we realise around the world), but at the very least, we are called to lay down our agendas, rights and desires for the glory of God.

We are called, gifted and empowered by the Holy Spirit of the Living and Resurrected Christ to walk in victory until the completion of our earthly journey.

“Have you decided – have you made a non-negotiable and Rock-solid choice – to walk closely with God all the days of your life?”

Ephesians 6:13 NIV Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
