Stand Firm!

February 05, 2019

“By faith…he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.” Heb 11:27

The life of Moses can be summed up in two words: “He endured.” He endured despite the contempt of Pharaoh, the mightiest monarch on earth. He endured despite the stubbornness of the Hebrews, who grumbled, blamed, and rebelled. He endured despite the criticism of Miriam and Aaron, his own family. He endured despite the negative report of the ten spies who came back from the Land of Promise saying, “The giants are too big, and we are too small” (See Nu 13:33). How did Moses do it? Answer: “By faith…he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.” He kept his eyes on God—not people! Paul gives us the secret to victory in the battles of life: “Having done everything…stand firm” (Eph 6:13 NAS). Stand firm when your enemies seem to prosper. Stand firm when the wicked seem to be winning. Stand firm when big people act small and little people demand authority they don’t deserve. Stand firm when no one would ever know you compromised. Spiritually speaking, where are you today? Are you feeling shaky in areas where you once stood strong? Are you giving in to temptation, fear, mood-swings, or the opinions of others because you’re tired of their disapproval? Stand firm! Moses endured even when he was in his eighties “because he saw him who is invisible” (NIV). He kept his eyes on the Lord. He continually reminded himself that his sole purpose in life was to please the Lord, obey Him, glorify Him, and gain His approval. So the word for you today is: Stand firm!

Do not let your heart be troubled so says Our Lord Jesus Christ, and here PAUL is reaffirming the same emphasis, having done everything, stand firm. It is a solem call for me today to keep my eyes on the invisible but a palpable God, who is ever present with us, the Alfa and the Omega, the Ancient of days, the I am that Iam. As I write this piece, I am in the mist of my greatest storm yet, having discovered the unthinkable in the latest medical tests I have just done and briefed by my doctors. But I have this unending PEACE in me, unshakable foundation appeared under my feet and he keeps telling me, “ let yiur heart not be troubled “ I put my faith in this invisible God in whom Moses focused on and all is well with me. The bigger the battle, the mightier the victory. My prayer today is,: Lord, give me a ministry in all these storms of life, and help me to bring more people into the kingdom of God tru these circumstances. I am healed by the power of the spirit of the Lord who woke up JESUS Christ from the dead, because that spirit lives me and breath in the breath of live into my mortal body. Amen and pray for me at your spare time pls. Daniel
