A few weeks ago, I met with an amazing friend of mine. She poured into my life on many different levels. I continue to thank God for the ones that He has put into my life to do that when encouraging words are needed. She echoed these words to me…. “Right now Jen, I feel like you are just supposed to STAND”. That’s all.
Those words resonated with my spirit and I took them to heart and since then they have been a reoccurring thought.
How many times do we just need to hear those words to get us through life’s troubles. Sometimes God is only calling us to do one thing. (STAND).
As the waves of life come crashes in, may you be planted on solid ground so that you are able to stand through the tests of time and reap the rewards that standing will produce.
You can do it!
Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again.
2 Chronicles 20:17
You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.’ “
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.
O LORD, when you favored me, you made my mountain stand firm; but when you hid your face, I was dismayed.
But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you established your faithfulness in heaven itself.
Your statutes stand firm; holiness adorns your house for endless days, O LORD.
Your word, O LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.
When the storm has swept by, the wicked are gone, but the righteous stand firm forever.
Wicked men are overthrown and are no more, but the house of the righteous stands firm.
