514th -- Message On Standing Firm


I hope you are doing well and are in the best of health. I am doing well
and am thankful for the goodness and graciousness of our wonderful Lord. We
can depend on God when everything else fails because He has promised that
He would never leave us nor forsake us. No matter the trials or hardships
that come before us, the Lord is our faithful Father and He is our strong
tower of protection and sustenance. Take comfort and know that God is still
on His throne and in His sight All Is Well. I hope this message on standing
firm in the difficult times of life encourages your heart to continue on 
because the Lord will never leave your side. (Hebrews 13:5) (Psalm 61:1-4)

It is easy to feel like giving up when the obstacles of life seem so great,
but it is in this time of trial that we must dig our heels in and stand 
firm knowing that things will get better sooner than later. Many times 
when we face difficult situations, a sense of fearful anxiety grabs a hold 
of our heart making us question how we will get over that problem. In this
time of spiritual warfare, we are to remember Whose we are and take hold of
the promises that are found in the Word of God. (Ephesians 6:13-14)

When I go through difficult situations that tempt my peace and my calmness,
I quote many scriptures such as 2 Timothy 1:7 which declares “For God hath
not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound
mind.” Psalm 46:1 “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in
trouble.” 2 Samuel 22:33-34 “God is my strength and power: and He maketh
my way perfect…” Psalm 28:7 “The LORD is my strength and my shield; my 
heart trusted in Him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth
and with my song will I praise Him.” 

The promises of the Lord are Yes and Amen and nothing by any means can 
harm God's elect people. In the beginning He was, and is still and will 
continue to be for all time. The Lord is our solution because in Him is 
fulfilled the answer to our hearts cry. When situations come nigh unto you
trying to steal your peace and make you question your purpose or destiny,
you need only to think of the greatness of God and realize that He creates
nothing without a purpose and plan in mind. You are here for a specific 
reason and until that purpose has been fulfilled, you are not done yet.

Even though there is a spiritual battle constantly going on and the enemy
tries his best to take our peace and calmness and replace it with his fear
and worry, we are promised the Victory through Christ the Lord. We need 
only to stand firm in resistance knowing that our God is Mighty and at the
mention of His name all demons must bow. (2 Corinthians 1:20) (Philippians 2:9-11)

Rejoice in God’s goodness and confess with your mouth that your heart is
trusting in Him. God's peace that surpasses all understanding will guard
your heart and mind through Christ Jesus our Lord. Trust Him all the days
of your life and know that weeping may endure for a night, but Joy cometh 
in the morning. (Psalm 28:6-8) (Philippians 4:7) (Psalm 30:5)

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Psalm 18:1-3 “I will love Thee, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock,
and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will 
trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will
call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from
mine enemies.”

John 14:27 Jesus declares
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto 
you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be 
troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Deuteronomy 30:19 “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you,
that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore
choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.”

Philippians 4:4-7 “Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. Let
your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for
nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving 
let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which 
passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
