No running, stand firm

What happens when you are faced with impending problems?

Do you face them head-on or do you want to run away?

Whilst it is tempting to just pack and run, we have been time and again being reminded from Scriptures that we are to be on our guard, stand firm in the faith, be men of courage and be strong (1 Cor 16:13).

And in Ephesians 6, we have the armour of God that we are to put on and again to stand firm, with the belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, sandals of readiness from the gospel of peace, shield of faith, helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

So no running. Stand firm.

  1. One of my many favorite scriptures.....and having done ALL stand......and stand.....and STAND.

  2. Ditto what Susan said! It seems odd to say but standing is part of running the race :)

  3. Yea, standing firm even when the ground is shaking ... no easy feat, but we still need to stand.

    Interesting KB, a good reminder because in no way it is apathy. While we stand firm, we still need to work hard, and be disciplined at it.
