Benefits of Standing for God
The fear of being shredded by starving lions could not frighten Daniel from what he had come to accept as the will of God for him at certain set times of the day; to pray. Check out the hungry lions and stuff of life that seek to scare you away from devotion to God in prayer and quiet time today and call their bluff.

Noah was not disturbed nor dissuaded by the atrociousness of the evil of his day and their scorn of his chosen lifestyle; he refused to be contaminated by the widespread corruption of his day. And after God gave him the command to build an Ark, he waded through those grinding and tortuous 120years toiling at it and at the same time preaching to people who only disregarded all he stood for. Why would you allow the motley crowd that has chosen to live ungodly lives at home, school or workspace to distract and derail you from accomplishing the task the sovereign Lord has placed in your feeble hands? If you stand for Him today He will strengthen and empower you to live to His honor and glory.

Our Lord Jesus when He saw and experienced in Gethsemane what will befall Him in the next seven days of His earthly life, still made up His mind to continue with the will of God despising the humiliation and horror, to the shame and discomfiture of Satan: His resolve and determination to do the will of God instead of saving his flesh was instrumental to the fulfillment of the purposes of God, bringing Him glory and purchasing our salvation. If you resist the drive to compromise the will and command of God today, He will be glorified, and you may become the source of God’s answer to someone’s prayers, and He will come to your rescue when you need Him the most. Resist this day the evil of compromise and you will be lifted from a life of discontentment and misery. La Rochefoucauld was right when he said:

Little is needed to make a wise man happy, but nothing can content a fool. That is why nearly all men are miserable.

Why not decide this day to stand for God, pressing on to His upward calling for your life knowing you are not your own since you have been bought with a price; if you are indeed Born Again.

So let those [of us] who are spiritually mature and full-grown have this mind and hold these convictions; and if in any respect you have a different attitude of mind, God will make that clear to you also. Phil.315 Amp

There was something our Lord Jesus had in mind for Saul of Tarsus the day He took hold of him on the road to Damascus. Thereafter, the Apostle made a decision to take hold of that thing. Beloved of the Lord, do you know that there is a purpose of God for your life this day, why would anyone fritter away God’s sure blessings for a mess of portage? Why not ask Him now to reveal His will for your life and to give you the resolve to focus on the needful; the strength of character and perseverance not to be distracted or dissuaded from being whom He wants you to be: Pray that prayer NOW!

So I said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And He said, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you. I will deliver you from the Jewish people, as well as from the Gentiles, to whom I now send you,  to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.’ Acts 2615-18  NKJV

If the dread of being shredded by starving lions could not deter Daniel from his devotion to God, and King Nebuchadnezzar’s fire did not frighten the three Hebrew men, why not look to God right now and refuse that compromise staring you in the face and submit your future into God’s hand and see The God of heaven muster help for you. Yes! Stand for Him now and He will stand with you forever.  God will take the glory and you will receive the reward for obedience.

  1. Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
    Through eternal ages let His praises ring,
    Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,
    Standing on the promises of God.

Standing, standing,
Standing on the promises of God my Savior;
Standing, standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

  1. Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
    When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
    By the living Word of God, I shall prevail,
    Standing on the promises of God.
  2. Standing on the promises I now can see
    Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;
    Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,
    Standing on the promises of God.
  3. Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
    Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
    Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
    Standing on the promises of God.
  4. Standing on the promises I shall not fall,
    Listening every moment to the Spirit’s call.
    Resting in my Savior as my, All in all,
    standing on the promises of God.

  1. Those starving lions can be our boses, employers, spouse and family relatives. The pain/consequences of not standing with them instead of standing with God in this life is so overwhelming. And this is due to our short-sightedness.
    I recommend the movie “Courageous” for every Christian.

    • Jeff my dear, it could be challenging to stand this day, but remember the crowd of the faithfuls listed in Heb.11 and take a stand with them. God is the stability of our times. Thanks for your valid comment.
