Ephesians 6:13

“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

I can remember when our children first were able to stand on their own. It was usually after they had been holding onto a chair or with my wife or I holding them. Almost without them realizing what was happening they were standing on their own. As we applauded for them they usually dropped down, but had a grin.

There comes times in our life when we realize that we have lost our support and are standing on our own. It can be a frightening time, but it can also be a time where we realize God’s plan and purpose for our life.

It is sad that we have many believers who live their entire lives without learning to stand on their own. They are spiritual babes that fail to rise to the potential that God desires for their lives.

Take time to examine your own spiritual life. Are you like a frightened baby that is too dependent on someone else to support them? Instead it is time to let go and allowing the Lord to give you the inner motivation to stand firm and bold for Him.

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
