Standing Firm in Your Faith

A christian girl

You stand firm in the faith by putting on the armor of God. The Christian race is not a playground, but a battlefield. Satan may come with arrows of doubt, but we must be on guard always with the armor. Apostle Paul admonished that we should put on the armor of God to be able to stand against the schemes of the devil (Ephesians 6:11).

You must be watchful at all times. Watchfulness is vigilance against any possible danger. Satan, like a roaring lion, moves about seeking who he will devour (1 Peter 5:8).

Do not be conformed to the pattern of the world. Following the pattern of the world will hinder your faith. Renew your mind with God's word by studying it regularly (Romans 12:2).

Some people drift from the faith in difficult times. Don’t be swayed by difficulty. Tough times only last for some time (John 16:33). God is faithful. He will not allow you to be tempted beyond your ability (1 Corinthians 10:13).

Look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith (Hebrews 12:2). Jesus is the author of your faith, and the good work he has started with you, he will complete it. Set your gaze on him when you feel like giving up. He will get you back on your feet. 

Spend time in prayer. Prayer boost faith. As you talk to God, he gives you more strength to live a life of faith (Ephesians 6:18).

Be strong and courageous. Don’t be frightened. God is with you.
