Stand Your Ground

More than half of the states in the US have what is known as “stand your ground” laws, which allows individuals to defend or protect themselves by use of force, rather than just running away.

God has given us a “stand your ground” law too. We have a list of promises-guaranteed blessings that belong to us. But we have to stand against our enemy to take them and receive them.

To stand your ground means to refuse to change position, to refuse to move from one place to another, to refuse to retreat or lose your advantage in the face of opposition.

Standing your ground in a face to face of a full-on assault from Satan no matter the situation is no easy task.

Here are some ways to stand your ground:

Feed On The Right Spiritual Food

“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4)

Not all Spiritual food is good. You may not think of it this way, but when you consume anything your eyes and ears it’s going into your spirit. A horror movie is going to feed your spirit fear and death. A good majority of movies, sitcoms and reality shows will feed your spirit strife and sin. Even some churches with feed you a boatload of doubt.

You may not think these things are a big deal but just like in the natural, you will reflect what you consume. Whatever you feed on in the spirit real is what will make you stronger. If you meditate on fear and doubt, that’s what is going to be the strongest in your life and mind. It will have the greatest influence on how you respond to life’s challenges.

What happens when the Word goes into your heart? Faith comes! Faith is that force that comes inside you that causes God’s power to be manifested in your body or any situation you’re facing.

When you feed on the right Spiritual food the Word of God again and again, you will give your spirit the strength to stand your ground. Just like in the natural, you need regular feedings. Don’t skip a meal. Keep feeding on the Word for maximum results.

Study Until You’re an Expert

If you want to be an expert at receiving from God, you need to first become an expert at knowing what He’s offering and what you can expect. Believer who don’t spend much time studying the Word Od of Gd are not the people who walk in Devine health, peace and prosperity. That’s because they don’t know how to receive it! They haven’t taken the time to become experts on the promises of God.

How would you define an expert?

If you read a book on investing one time, you’ll know more that you did before you read it, but you won’t be an expert. An expert is a person who has comprehensive and authorities knowledge of or skill in a particular area.

If you’re going to stand your ground you’re going to have to become an expert in the Word of God concerning what it right or wrong and good or evil. You will need to know how to combat the enemy and take what belongs to you.

Speak Faith On Repeat

“The tongue has the power of life and death. (Proverbs 18:21)

Once you become an expert, you’ll know the importance of speaking faith on repeat. Speaking positively about your situation or speaking scripture once or twice, then filling in the blanks with a bunch of fearful talk, won’t get the job done.

When I developed cancer the doctors told me I had one year to live. I was obviously scared. But God is the great Physician so I started reading the Word and claiming healing over my life. “I will not let the enemy take my life, I will not die.” Requested people to pray for me and after my first cancer treatment after surgery I was cancer free.

Know God’s Word Completely.
