I drew two promises this morning. When I read them, they seemed more like an outline… bullets, points to follow. Look at the verses below. The first one says:
. Be watchful. In other words, be sober, be vigilant, be aware!
. Stand firm in the Faith. Don’t be wishy-washy, pick a side, commit!
. Act like men. Don’t be a coward or fearful, man-up!
. Be strong. Put weakness aside, put your trust in the Living God, let Him fight for you!
Then we look at the next verse. It says:
. If God is for us…. We already know that if we belong to Him-He is on our side. He will fight the battle!
. Who can be against us? We know the devil is against us, him and all his minions, but he was defeated at The Cross, and has no power over the Believer! So…who is left? No one!
** 1 Corinthians 16:13 (ESV)
13 Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.
“When we in darkness walk, nor feel the Heavenly flame,
then is the time to trust our God, and rest upon His name!” -Unknown
** Romans 8:31 (ESV)
31 … If God is for us, who can be against us?
“I bow me to Thy will, O God, and all Thy ways adore.
And every day I live I’d seek to please Thee more and more.” -Unknown
Let’s be watchful today, and when the devil comes knocking, we will be ready for him. We can stand firm in our Faith-quote the Word of God to him. Don’t be fearful, trust in God…He will make us strong! We must remember…God Almighty is for us, and nothing…I repeat, NOTHING can come against us and succeed if we put our faith and trust in Him!
