When both blessings and trials come our way, the thing which matters most, is where we choose to stand. Are we being tossed to and fro by the tides of change, or are our feet securely planted on the Rock that cannot be moved? By standing firm you will gain life. – (Luke 21:19)

 

To stand firm, is to place our hope and faith in Christ, no matter how difficult the situation. Christ has given us His Holy Spirit to comfort, protect and provide for our every need. Our assurance in Him ought to grant us the courage to stand strong in the Lord, as He alone is the way to eternal life. May we hold fast to His promises, and know that all in this life is fleeting, but that which is yet to come, is eternal.

 

Blessings and trials,Gaining Life

will both come our way;

how will we choose stand,

throughout day to day?

Thrown, tossed to and fro,

by changing of tides;

or trusting in Him,

where all hope resides.

The Lord is the rock,

that cannot be moved;

He’s safe and secure,

His promises proved.

May we choose stand firm,

and set aside strife;

hold fast to the Lord,

and in Him, gain life.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are the Rock on which we can stand secure. Thank You that no matter what goes on around us, You will not be moved. Thank You that when we stand firm in You, our future is secure for all of eternity. Forgive us for our fearfulness and weariness. Teach us to trust You more, so that we will hold fast to You, no matter what comes our way. Lead us to love others as You so tenderly and generously love each of us. May many come into a saving knowledge of You, so that futures are forever secure in You. Be exalted O God, as we stand firm in You. Amen.
