It is learned in some circles, such as the military and law enforcement, that how you stand is very important to stability. It is often called “planting your feet.” This is critical when unexpected and strong forces come against an individual with the intent of throwing that individual off balance so they are overcome and lose their footing.
Paul knew this danger in a spiritual sense. As you read these few verses, think about what it means to “stand firm.” See if they help relate to the idea of “planting your feet.”
“Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong” (1 Corinthians 16:13).
“Not that we lord it over your faith, but we work with you for your joy, for you stand firm in your faith” (2 Corinthians 1:24).
“Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness” (Ephesians 6:14).
In the first two references, the phrase “stand firm” means to “continue to be steadfast.” This has the assumption that you are already standing strong in the truth and he wants that to continue. That is also my desire for you and why in this ministry we keep pointing you back to the Word of God. The winds of falsehood, tradition and accepting other standards than Scripture are blowing strong. I appeal to you; stand firm in the truth of Scripture!
