2 Corinthians 1:21-22
New International Version
21 Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, 22 set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
Who do you really belong to? God is the one that has established us, anointed and sealed us. If you are going to believe God, you are going to have to be able to stand firm. Do you know why? Your faith is going to be tested. Your flesh is going to be tried. Your walk is going to be challenged. Just like Daniels prayers were resisted by the enemy your prayers are going to be resisted. If Jesus has said, Yes and I believe he has, then you have to put both feet down and you have to put your armor on. You have to pick the sword of the Spirit. You have to have the shield of faith. You have to declare these words:
I am standing firm! You stand firm because you are anointed and you are sealed by God. He is coming back for a church that is ready for Him.
Keep your eyes on Him and not on the circumstances.
