Day 9 - Stand Tall - Daily Inspirational Verses from Real Life

1 Corinthians 16:13 (NIV1984)

"Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong."

Do you believe in Satan?

Do you believe that he has the ability to put stumbling blocks in your way?

I never did.  My education is in physics, and I have spent my academic life and the remainder of my life since then, solving problems.  The basis of all that is observation.  If you can measure it, you can duplicate it, and it is real.  If you can not, you either lack knowledge, or it is not real.

One thing it never is, nor can it be, is outside of rational thought, or supernatural.

Yet, if you are a Christian, as I am, you already acknowledge the supernatural.  Nothing ordinary or explainable in Jesus' life, your salvation or Grace.  For no reason, other than love, you sins have been forgiven.

So if you believe in God, Jesus and Grace, then you believe in Satan.  Since you are God's now, he can't attack you directly, but he can and does throw things into your way, to break your spirit, your will and your faith.

This verse wants you to be aware that the attack is coming.

This verse says it will not be easy to stand in the storms in your life, but do it anyway.

This verse tells you to live lives of courage.

Why does he tell you this?  Because sometime God does not stop the storm.  He lets it pass, and instead he calms you.  This verse is the calming spirit of God, reaching out to you to tell you that you ARE strong enough to stand.  So Stand.  Be Strong.  Have Courage.  God has made you strong enough to do it.
