Stand Therefore

Ephesians 6:14 (KJV) Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness.

The pilgrim’s journey towards the Celestial City is not an easy one. Our Lord made it very clear that the road on which we will make this journey is indeed very narrow and difficult. (Luke 13:24 “Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able”). However difficult the road may be, the pilgrim’s strength comes from the assurance of the Lord Himself, “…lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.” Matt. 28:20. So, dear pilgrim, let your encouragement and strength come from the promise of our Lord.

Many pilgrims however, can identify with the words of prophet Micah in their experience. (Micah 7:8) “Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.”

Dear Christian, do you find yourself falling into sin frequently? Do you feel the powers of hell and darkness are winning the battle over your life? Do you wish you could pray some more or study the word some more? Do you wish you could have a more consistent walk with God?

Here is a word from the Lord for you today: stand therefore! You can’t wish victories into reality, you must stand. Rise up from the dark place of sin and stand in righteousness. Rise up from the place of laziness and complacency and stand in the place of prayer. The Lord Himself will be your light. Don’t just wish for these things, rise up, take your stand and do them.

Prayer: Dear Lord, grant me the strength to stand today, amen.
—Otuokon, Ubokudom
