June 6, 2031 – STAND YOUR GROUND – Remember this song: I won’t back down. No I won’t back down. I will stand my ground…(Tom Petty) I heard it the other day and I listened to the words closely. We need to always stand our ground when we know that the Lord has called us to something and we should not back down. Opposition will come, and that’s why you have to know, without a doubt, that the Lord is in it. I heard a bible teaching a few years ago that talked about having a ‘Bull-dog Mentality’ and that teaching stuck with me. So much so, that I have a very dear friend that has said to me, on more than one occasion, “Stace, that’s the bull-dog in you.” Hebrews 10:35-36 Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise. (NKJ)
