Stand Firm

Hello, God has God has given  me something in Psalms 20:7 which says,

“They are brought to their knees and fall, 
    but we rise up and stand firm.”

David is said that some trusted in chariots and horses, but that we trust in God. Then he said that they were brought to their knees and fell, but that we rise up and stand firm. Paul says to stand firm in (Ephesians 6:14). We are to stand firm, even if others fall to their knees.

We need to stand firm, but how? We are in the life of sin, where we are shaken about so much, that without help we must fall. So, how do we “stand firm”? We were bound to die! Then, Jesus came, and He died in our place, and rose again! He saved us. He is our “stabilizer” that keeps us standing firm in the midst of the storm. He holds us tight, and loves us.

Those who do not believe in the sacrifice are refusing Jesus’ stabilizing. They will fall, unless they come to Christ. If you are an unbeliever, then why not come to the one who will keep you firm in Him? Come to Jesus, and live, and be loved by the lover. Come to Christ, and He will keep you.

Now, we no longer fall on our knees to hell, we fall on our knees in worship of the one who saved us. Let’s praise Him! Let’s fall on our knees to praise the only one who truly deserves all of our praise. Thank God for all He’s done! Oh thank You, Jesus! Let’s focus on HIM, and praise HIM! Thank You, God!

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for loving me so much. Thank You for all that You’ve done for me. Please help me not to be selfish, or proud. Please, please, help me to be more like You. Please keep me from falling into sin. Thank You for loving me so inexpressibly. Please help everyone to feel the joy I am. Please help me to love You even more. Please help me to walk with you like Enoch did. Please help me to long to read Your word more. Thank You for giving Your son for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.


Stand firm! Ephesians 6:14,

“Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,”

Beginning verse, Psalms 20:8,

“They are brought to their knees and fall, 
    but we rise up and stand firm.”

Peace and love, Joy Cleveland
