As I was listening to this old song today, I came down to realize how many things I’ve tried in order to replace the space that only Jesus could occupy. Oh sweet Jesus, for you, I can count all these things as loss. Everything that I’ve tried to use in order to replace the happiness and the fullfillment that only you can bring have failed. All the entertainment from this life cannot bring the peace and satisfaction that only you bring: hope to the hopeless, joy to the sad, life to the dead, healing to the hurt. Take your place, dear friend. Take the place that has always been yours.
“But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind” (James 1:6, NIV)
Are you believing that God will do something specific in your life today? Oftentimes, when we are standing in faith, the storms of life will blow. Things will come against us that try to knock our faith down. But, I to encourage you to stand strong in your faith and in your thinking so that you can be effective and see your dreams and desires come to pass.
Scripture tells us that if we go back and forth on what we believe, we are unstable and ineffective. Instead, we have to be fully persuaded that the Word of God is true no matter what we see. The way you stand firm in your faith is by staying focused on God instead of your circumstances. Sing praises to Him throughout the day and guard the words that come out of your mouth. When you stand firm in your faith, you have peace. You have a supernatural rest because you know God is in complete control. You trust Him completely. Today, stand firm in your faith, watch your words, and know that He is leading you into victory in every area of your life!
