Stand and See

“…stand and see the salvation of the Lord…”- II Chronicles 20:17

Do you ever find yourself avoiding a difficult situation? Many people today run when things get hard. They run from their problems. They run from responsibility. They run from people they don’t like. They run from the past. They run from anything that makes them uncomfortable. Instead of facing the issue and dealing with it, they look for the path of least resistance, which isn’t the path to victory. If we are going to embrace all that God has for us, we have to learn how to face our challenges head on.

Notice that today’s verse doesn’t say, “Keep running until you see the salvation of the Lord.” It doesn’t say, “Bury your head in the sand until God delivers you.” It doesn’t say, “Worry all night and try to figure things out until a miracle takes place.” No, God wants us to stand strong, set our faces like a flint, and fight the good fight of faith. And the good news is you don’t have to do it in your own strength! God is on your side. He’s equipped you with His supernatural power to overcome every obstacle.

Today, know that God is with you. He is for you. You are equipped to overcome. Stand strong, stand in faith, knowing that you will see the salvation and deliverance of Almighty God in every area of your life!

Run the Race

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us” – Hebrews 12:1-3

The Christian commitment is like a race. There are fresh eager faces as the gun sounds to begin the race, but along the grueling route, one person after another drops out before finishing. What about you?

Are you willing to serve him wholeheartedly so that the Gospel may be taken around the whole world?

Are you willing to bring all of your energies to bear for the sake of Christ?

You have a variety of gifts and talents that could change the world if put into the hands of Christ. You may have youth, health, energy, education, political freedom and economic opportunities. Along with those gifts, you possess the Lord Jesus Christ. If you do not seriously face God’s call for you, I want to tell you that it is a terrible tragedy. Scripture says that time is short. God has given us an open door, and He has given us the tools and the technology to touch the whole world if we mean business.

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize – 1 Corinthians 9:23-25
