Theme: Having Done All To Stand
Scripture : Ephesians 6:13
Points To Ponder
There are times in life when you have tried all that you know to do, and it still isn’t
fixing the situation. You have prayed and fasted and asked for prayer and done
everything that everyone has said to do, but still… it doesn’t seem to fixing
It’s in those times that you have to understand….
Having done all to stand…you stand!
This has been a theme scripture with the youth groups I have youth pastored. I
wanted the teenagers to learn a principle in life—sometimes, you just have to:
stand up for what you believe
stand up for someone you believe in
stand up for something you want more than anything
It is an act of allegiance to stand up and say “I know whom I have believed and
am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I’ve committed unto HIM against
You see—that’s where faith kicks in.
When it’s not showing up, not happening immediately, not presto poof appearing!
That’s when you STAND!
Maybe you are facing a situation that is not fixing itself, and you have prayed and
fasted and done it all twice, but still…nothing!
You going to give up?
NO way, Jose!
That’s when you dig deep into your soul and find the strength to…
I can tell you…God healed me of throat cancer because I took a Stand!
And He doesn’t forget what you need…He just knows exactly when you need it!
God misses a whole lot of opportunities to be early…
But He is never late…He’s an ONTIME God!
Come on…Stand up!
There you go…now determine in your heart…
Having done all to stand…STAND!
Let’s Pray Together
Lord, when things seem to not be going my way, remind me that you have it all in
control. When I am not sure how to handle a situation or what my next step
should be—remind me to just Stand and let you take care of it. I ask for your help
in learning the lesson that sometimes, I just need to do nothing after I’ve done
everything I can, and it’s still not fixed. In the end, you are the one who will fix it
perfectly. I just have to stand!
In Jesus’ name I pray,
