Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. (Ephesians 6:13 ESV)
Standing in Faith Ministries equips others to exercise their Christian faith in order to experience the fullness and the freedom that is available through Christ Jesus.
God’s Word encourages us to stand firm in our faith. Faced with what appeared to be certain destruction by the Egyptians, Moses told the Israelites to not be afraid; for if they would stand firm, the LORD would deliver them and they’d never see their pursuers again. Isaiah prophesied to King Ahaz of Judah that if he didn’t stand firm in his faith, he wouldn’t stand at all. Paul wrote over and over to the Corinthian church to stand firm in their faith—to be careful, on guard, and strong; and to have courage. Jesus taught his followers that even though they would be hated because of him, the result of standing firm being salvation and life.
We hold fast to the truth that God has gone before us—that He’s not asking us to do anything that He has not already modeled for us. Throughout the Psalms, we receive comfort from the knowledge that His plans, His word, His purposes, His law and His love stand firm—they are eternal and unchanging and we can count on them.
We are encouraged by Biblical heroes as well as modern-day believers whose faith has brought them through incredible trials. But, most of all we look to Jesus, the source of our faith; the perfect example who, for the joy that was set before him, went to the cross and endured all the suffering that the enemy could heap upon him. He never lost sight of the goal, and in finishing his race he provided everything we need to finish ours.
