Standing Firm…

Isaiah 7:9b,  “If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all.”

Those words really hit me hard this morning.  From beginning to end the Bible tells us that we must have faith.  We must believe God and take Him at His Word in every area of our lives!  The Bible tells us that without faith, it is impossible to please God. (Hebrews 11:6). If you want to see God move in your life it is imperative that you trust Him and have faith to believe that He will do all He said He would do and He will accomplish all that He has set out to accomplish regardless of what things look like right now!

You cannot look around and make that decision, you must keep your eyes set on Him.  We live in a world that is very much upside down and backward!  If you watch all of the chaos going on around you or you feel you need certain people to be there for you, you will struggle to have faith and trust God and God alone.  Your success in life is found in Him.  Joshua 1:8 tells us, “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it.  For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”  Your answer isn’t going to be found in other people, in fact, God may remove those people from your life that you think your success is wrapped up in.  God wants you to rely on Him.  He wants you to trust Him when you can’t see to the other side!  He wants unwavering faith and trust!

Sometimes I don’t think we take “Fatih” seriously enough.  Over and over God has told us in His Word how important it is for us to trust Him and just do what He tells us to do.  We need to have faith in every area.  He has promised to be our rock and our fortress, our vindicator, our provider and so much more.  He loves you and He wants you to trust Him.  Remember, it is usually in the darkest times of our lives, those times when all Hell seems to be coming against you that you grow the most!  Walk with Him!  Listen to Him! Cling to Him and Trust him like you never have before fully believing that truly His best is yet to come!!
