Keep standing

When you stand on the Lord, you stand on solid ground. Jesus is the best foundation. He is the Rock of Ages. He is the cornerstone of life with God. He is the author of your faith. Jesus is the reason why you are going to make it and the reason why you are saved. He is the only One you can stand on and He allows you to be steady in your walk. Keep standing on the Lord. Keep standing on the truth. Keep standing on the One who died for you. Keep standing on the base of your salvation. Keep standing on love. Keep standing on peace. Keep standing on joy. Keep standing on God’s promises no matter what. The enemy doesn’t like to see believers standing on the truth. He hates it. He hates the relationship we have with the Lord. What he thinks doesn’t matter. There is nothing he can do to destroy what Jesus already did so let’s have faith in the perfect sacrifice that gave us eternal life. Let’s remember that bad things do happen but Jesus happened as well and He took care of them. “Your bad things” are not permanent. “Your bad things’ ‘ have no power over the Lord. Exert the power of the Lord on your bad things by continuing to stand. Keep standing, friend. You will see amazing results!

Psalm 93:5 says “Your statutes, Lord, stand firm.” We can be firm and keep standing because our Savior is firm and He is who is all the time. He is God and He is Lord everywhere and every time. His power is constant. His love is constant. His strong foundation is constant. His truth is constant. His grace is constant. His mercy is constant. Friend, you are standing on a God who never changes and who can always do great things. He is your Rock forever. Stand because you have Him. Stand because He is with you. Stand because you are backed up by the greatest power in the universe. Stand because you are justified by your faith. Stand because Jesus stood for you before you did and He is still standing. He is still almighty. He is still unparalleled. He is still God and He still has tremendous blessings for you. Keep standing even when it is difficult. Find your strength in the Rock that no one can break and that no one can defeat.

Stand firm, friend. It is worth it. Your faith is worth it. Your hope is worth it. Jesus makes it all worth it. Keep standing. You have what it takes to make it. You have what it takes to keep walking and to keep thriving. Remember that greater is the One who lives in you than the one who is in this world. Jesus in you can weather any storm. You don’t have to do it alone. You don’t have to rely on yourself to be able to stand. Jesus will prop you up when you are slouching. He will keep you standing when you feel like you have no energy. He will be your crutch. He will be your help. He is your defender and your protector. You can stand. In His name you can stand. When you are discouraged, the Lord is looking at you and encouraging you to stand thanks to Him. Take Him at His word. Keep the faith and keep going. You are going to make it. The Lord is your best ally and He is supporting you. Stay encouraged! May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
