If you do not stand firm in faith, you shall not stand at all. That’s it in a nutshell. We have to have faith and hope. We have to believe in the power and authority that is above because those human battles we fight can not be won on our own. Without faith we are swayed every which way. We find ourselves going in every false direction wondering why we haven’t reached our goal or destination. There is in fact one true direction. It is the one that leads us to our true selves, honoring those things that can not be seen by wandering eyes and yet very visible to the discerning heart. Therefore, do not let your heart be troubled and do not be afraid. Trust and know that God is God (John 14:27).
