There are often stages we go through while trying to receive from the Lord. Obviously one stage is identifying an area of need. As we identify a need, we do what Bible believing Christians are supposed to do, we pray and we look to the Word. As we look to the Holy Spirit for help I firmly believe that He will reveal scripture to stand on and claim as your own regarding your situation. Now once you've gotten Word to apply to your situation comes the often difficult part.... Stand firm. There is a period of declaring, claiming, praying, and obeying. Sometimes we have to stand for hours, some weeks, some months, and some must stand for years for one specific situation still knowing that God is faithful and His Word is true.
After you've done all to stand... STAND!
My encouragement today is simple and short, don't waiver in faith, don't quit, don't give up, stand on the Word, stand on His promises, He is forever faithful.
If you don't quit, you'll win :) Be blessed, J. Tate
