Stand In Faith

Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.  (II Corinthians 1:24)

We cannot stand by our own power.  We cannot stand by the powers of other men.  We cannot stand by powers of parents or pastors.  We cannot stand without having faith.  Our faith is in God and by that faith, we are able to continue to stand.  So often we want to show our faith to others and we want to please others by our faith.  It is not others that we should seek to please.  It is God.  We all work together to help one another that our faith may grow stronger.  But the object of our faith is God’s pleasure.  Know this, there are those who look for fault in us and therefore, we can’t please men anyway.  But as you stand in faith, you please God.  We can give glory to the Holy Spirit for keeping us and for the working of our faith in power.
