Lent day 8: Withstand by standing with ChristMarch 6, 2020
As we find ourselves in the midst of a great spiritual battle, what can we do? Paul says, “Therefore take up the whole armor of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day and having done all, to stand firm.” Did you get that? Put on the whole armor of God and then stand – but not alone – withstand which means we stand with Christ! With Christ we can withstand anything! You’re not just standing by if your standing by Christ and you can withstand anything if Christ stands with you!
All we are called to do is stand – and when you can no longer stand, guess what, God will stand you. Again, none of this is by our own strength or in our own power. It’s God’s battle – all we need do is stand with Him.
