Whoaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa 2013! It has been a year that has meant for me, pushing through. I have had to push through pain that would not show me any mercy. I have had to push through the chatter of doom to be able to see the promise of something extraordinary. Maybe you can probably identify with “the push” that I am speaking of. “The push” is that inner helping hand; and for some that hand has been the one thing that has helped pushed us from one moment to the next.
Nevertheless I’m standing anyway. I will stand anyway; and so will you. You will stand anyway because not standing is to kneel in surrender to life’s challenges. There will be more adversity so you might as well learn to flex the muscles of your prayer, faith, and perseverance. This Life-Giving Declaration allows you to speak life over your mind, your spirit, and your body when it wants to give up. You do have the power to stand anyway. Through all the confusion, the broken promises, perhaps a failed marriage, failed relationships, and even the frustration of the lack of progress. You can stand anyway.
Life and death lies in the power of your tongue. Be mindful of what your tongue confesses. Be mindful of what your tongue is willing to say about your situation. Train it to praise God and for it to speak life over you. You really can stand anyway.
Hebrews 12:12-13 NLT
“So take a new grip with your tired hands and strengthen your weak knees. Mark out a straight path for your feet so that those who are weak and lame will not fall but become strong.”
