Have faith in God constantly…

Don’t doubt… believe…

Whatever you have asked for… BELIEVE you HAVE received it…  (Mk 11:22-24)

Be well-balanced…

Withstand him (your enemy); be firm in faith [against his onset – rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined], knowing that the same (identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians) throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace [Who imparts all blessing and favor], Who has called you to His [own] eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen, and settle you.”  (1Pet 5:8-10 Amp)

Saint of God where is your place?  It is to be in faith… in confidence in God.  It is to be withstanding every assault of the the enemy, because you have be given power to do that very thing – that you will be a witness for the Lord!

We can do all things through Christ Who strengthens us. So why do we struggle so?  We all have the same Peter tendency… to get caught up in looking at the waves and their appearance overwhelms us.

So you at this very moment have a choice:  to stand or to cave; to arise to the challenge or collapse under what it looks like.  I encourage you … keep your eyes on the Lord!  If Peter had, he wouldn’t have noticed the waves!  But remember, even though he did notice them, and did sink, Jesus had him — and He was safe.

No matter what is threatening, no matter what storm rages around you — in Christ you are safe, the overcoming one lives in you. You have supernatural buoyancy!  He’s got you!

The goal is to outlast the assault by faith and do not doubt.  Proverbs 12:21 tells us that no actual evil or misfortune or calamity shall come upon the righteous…. Are you experiencing evil or calamity?  Is it like the fiery furnace of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego?  They were in the furnace for sure.  But the furnace couldn’t touch them.  Not even the smoke could cling to them!

You are no different if you are in Christ! If it looks evil, or calamitous, just trust God… you have been given a great opportunity to demonstrate the power and faithfulness of God!

So stand Saint! Stand in confidence in the One Who is always faithful.  Stand in faith, knowing He never leaves you or forsakes you!  Stand … and take your place as a witness for the Holy demonstration of the ages of what His grace is bringing forward in this very time.

Stand Saint … and take your place in Him, in the cloud of witnesses! He’s got you.
