Keep Standing - Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotional 24 January Sunday
put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you
may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to
stand.” (Ephesians 6:13, NIV)
people have problems because they are making poor choices or doing
something wrong. But other times, people are having difficulties because
they are doing something right.
you’re determined to fulfill your God-given destiny, and you’re taking
steps to improve your life or make a difference in your family or
community, don’t be surprised if you face opposition. The enemy is not
going to just roll out the red carpet and watch you fulfill your
God-given destiny. He’ll do whatever he can to keep you from moving
forward. The apostle Paul said this, “A wide door of opportunity is open
for me and there are many adversaries.” I’ve found that anytime you try
to go forward in life, anytime you try to make progress, there will be
opposition. But with God on your side, you can stand your ground!
Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. If you’re
facing opposition today, keep standing, keep believing, keep hoping.
Keep fighting the good fight of faith until you see the victory He has
in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
thank You for Your promise of victory. I choose to take my eyes off of
my challenges and focus on You. Thank You for equipping me with Your
armor so that I can stand strong in You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
