This morning the Holy Spirit took me to some verses to help me stand. I just want to share them with you. Ephesians 6:13 tells us that when we have done all to stand, to keep on standing.
1 Corinthians 16:13 says, “Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.”
Psalm 31:24 says, “Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the Lord.”
1 Samuel 4:9 is the Philistine pep talk: conduct yourselves like men, and fight!
Nahum 1:1 says, “…Man the fort! Watch the road! Strengthen your flanks! Fortify your power mightily.”
Psalm 27:14 says, “Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord.”
I just started reading Joshua yesterday. Joshua 3:4 is telling them to watch the ark, “…that you may know the way by which you must go, for you have not passed this way before.” It is so comforting to know that He has gone before us to prepare the way, and He is ever present as He leads us into uncharted territory.
