Fear not; stand firm and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will work for you today. ~ Exodus 14:13
When you step out to do something big for God, the enemy wills end challenges and distractions to knock you off course. He may try to send you running, but you have a promise that God is working behind the scenes for you. You'll be amazed at what God will doing your life when you stand and face your challenges and hold on to the promises found in His Word.
When you take a stand, you make a declaration of your faith in God and automatically raise that shield of faith, which extinguishes all the flaming arrows of the evil one (Ephesians 6:16). So take a stand today, and stay on the course the Lord has set for you - take stand in your prayer life - take a stand in your Bible study time - take a stand in your acts of service and giving to others. Take a stand and see the salvation and provision of the Lord in every area of your life!
Prayer for Today:
Dear Heavenly Father; thank You for Your promise to bring me through to victory. I ask for your strength as I take a stand do what is right according to Your Word. I know Your hand of blessing is upon my every act of obedience. I bless Your name today and will seek to serve You in everything I do.
