Day 85 – Stand Firm in the Faith
‘Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.’ 1 Corinthians 16:13 (NIV)
How can one be a man of courage in the midst of challenges? The scriptures provide the answer to this question, it says ‘stand firm in the faith’. So to live courageously through life in spite of financial, family, societal and national troubles we are to stand firm in the faith. What does this mean really? I like the message version – ‘hold tight to your convictions, give it all you’ve got, be resolute’. In order to be strong in trying times, we must be established in your faith, and hold tight to it. Don’t be discouraged by what you see, feel or hear. Maintain your confession and convictions, no matter what! Keep declaring what you have received from the Lord in His word.
A courageous man does not allow his financial situation, or the troubles around him to destabilize him or her, but simply depends on the Word and the faithfulness of God to His word as he takes necessary steps. Courage is being strong in the face of pain or grief. It is the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to confront fear, pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation. As you face your day today, stand firm in the faith on the word of God and live courageously. I assure you, it works. May this be your attitude every single day of this year, and you will experience your victory. God bless you real good.
