Stand firm and take action.
‘He shall seduce with flattery those who violate the covenant, but the people who know their God shall stand firm and take action. ‘
All the glory, praises and honor to the loving Heavenly Father in Jesus’ precious name!
The subject verse from the Book of Daniel brings before us two kinds of people. And it is no wonder, that we all fall into one of those two kinds. As can be seen, the verse starts with those who violate the covenant of God. The wicked ruler Antiochus, led astray those Israelites who violated the covenant with God either knowingly or out of fear. Moreover, the same is the case with those who think they are secure without God. Indeed, they are an easy target to the adversary, the Satan.
Stand firm and take action
On the other hand, those who know God shall stand firm in their faith and take action to keep themselves shielded. They not only depend on God, but also lead others to Him. And the wise among them shall make others understand the truth of God. For there shall always be times of tests, trials and tribulations. Therefore, the Bible says to be watchful of our faith and check where we stand. Not only that, we should be swift in taking corrective action that is needed.
‘ Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. ‘1 Corinthians 16:13 ESV
Therefore, let us stand firm in our faith by fully submitting to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And also allow ourselves to be led by the Holy Spirit of the Almighty God. Stay firm and be blessed in Jesus’ precious name. Amen.
