Devotion: Stand through the Power of God


Proverbs 24:16. ” For a just man falls seven times, and rises up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.”

Failure is not falling down, but its when you fail to rise up and stand. As long as you don’t give up, you are in the right track. Don’t accept defeat keep on rising up. Never give the devil reason to rejoice.

When men cast you down, speak uplifting words and you will be saved from the falling. Job 22 : 29(AMP) ” When they make [you] low, you will say, [There is] a lifting up; and the humble person He lifts up and saves.”


God’s word.

We wrestle with spiritual forces. The aim of the wrestling to make one fall down. What matters in this wrestling is for the wrestler to stand and not fall. Or if he falls, he should stand immediately. God has given us that ability, necessary weapons and capabilities to stand.

Eph 6:11 “Clothe yourselves with the full armor of God so that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.” Eph 6:13 “For this reason, take up the full armor of God so that you may be able to stand your ground on the evil day, and having done everything, to stand.”

Micah says in Micah 7:8. “Rejoice not against me, O my enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light to me.”

Truth, Righteousness,preaching Gospel,Salvation, Faith, Prayer in Spirit and Word of God are some of the tools given to us to remain standing in the midst of adversaries. Every believer was given these and what matters is whether you use them or not. Remember, this is just a wrestling. The actual battle was fought and won by Jesus. We need to maintain the victory. Cheer up! You are an overcomer and need to remain standing.


I am an overcomer. I have necessary weapons that will keep me standing in the midst of challenges. No weapon formed against me shall prosper in Jesus name. Amen
