Stand Firm

 

1 Corinthians 15:58:

“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not In vain”

I wonder what the world would look like if we all could learn the secret held behind applying this verse to our lives… When the phone rings and you receive the news you never expected or the mail comes and brings you an unexpected bill, it has no power over you because you are so firmly planted in Christ.

Where is this secret place found?

 I think its developed and can only be found by daily practicing it with the smaller things in life.  Being a people that are consistent from day to day.  Ones that can control our emotions and know how to respond to conflict in love.  Ones that don’t lose hope just because the circumstance looks grim. God wants to lead you to live in a place where nothing can come against you that has the power to affect you.  Its available to us all but we must do the work to condition our hearts and minds first. Its the beginning of a new week.  Make the decision this morning to be stedfast and unmovable with whatever comes your way.
