Now therefore stand and see this great thing, which the Lord will do before your eyes.
— 1 Samuel 12:16

God wants to fulfill His promises to us, but we've got to stand up! 

We've got to stand up and serve Him. We've got to let the enemy know that we are serious about taking hold of God's promises and will not allow discouragement and defeat to keep us down. 

When a child of God goes down on his or her knees the battle has just begun. Pray and get back on your feet with renewed strength. How bad do you want a change in your life? How much do you want to see God's goodness?

Can the enemy see your fortitude and determination?

We need quiet alone time to listen to God and allow Him to renew our strength. But, then we must get up in order to taste and see that the Lord is Good. (Psalm 34:8)

The Bible is full of examples of God bringing His people to action. If we want our promises we must stand before the enemy and take our power back. 

Get up in faith and see what the Lord will do.

To Ponder:

Am I sitting and waiting? Or, am I standing and showing that I'm serious?


Heavenly Father, 

I am standing up in faith to see Your goodness. I will get down on my knees for renewed strength but then I will arise and go forth in obedience. Help me with my fortitude. Remind me of who I am in You when the enemy seeks to discourage me and hold me down. 

In Christ I stand.
