8 Ways to Stand Strong#

Bouncing today from the walls of ancient Cathedrals or the roofs of modern Christian auditoriums is the same call - be steadfast, these times are increasingly wicked - discern good from evil so as to not drift away. 

No Christian is exempt from the impact of these deceitful sin supporting times.

Those who stand strong:

  • stand on the rock that is higher than I. This is the living of humility
  • choose the Lord as their refuge, for He is a strong tower against any foe
  • long to dwell in the Lord's tent, finding refuge in the shelter of His wings
  • know Him as an unshakeable fortress, for they peer down and see their feet are of clay
  • have become accustomed to calling upon Him wherever they are, no matter how weary
  • earnestly seek the Lord as a parched land longs for water
  • call on Him in the bright hours and during the watches of the night
  • are familiar with the finding of rest at His feet alone. Anywhere else invites disturbance.#

We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. (Hebrews 2:1)
