No Matter What, Just Stand

No matter what happens in our lives, all we need to do is stand. We have heard the song “Stand.”  These are more than just words from a songwriter; they give us instruction from God on what to do when we don’t know what to do. We stand because the Word tells us in Isaiah 40:31, “ But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength …” Our standing gives us the strength we need in times of despair. In Philippians 1:27, we find these words:

“Above all, you must live as citizens of heaven, conducting yourselves in a manner worthy of the Good News about Christ. Then, whether I come and see you again or only hear about you, I will know that you are standing together with one spirit and one purpose, fighting together for the faith, which is the Good News.”

Paul is writing to the Philippians, reminding them that they are members of the heavenly community and that they must live their lives in that manner. While Paul is absent, he wants to hear that they have stood firm, have worked together side by side, have not wavered in their faith or conviction, but have relied on the power of God. It is my prayer today we will not waver when life’s troubles arise, but rather we will remain true to God and stand on His Word.
