Be Steadfast

Let endurance and  steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you  may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in  nothing. —James  1:4

Today’s verse speaks of being  steadfast. To be steadfast is to be stable; a steadfast person is steady, calm,  and even-tempered, no matter what happens. A steadfast believer can give the  devil a nervous breakdown! When we mature spiritually to the point that we can maintain  a level of steadfastness, then we do not react to every little harassing thing  the enemy sends against us. Regardless of what he hurls our way, we will not be  impressed, we will not be afraid, we will not be easily upset, we will not give  up, and we will not be moved—if we are steadfast.

In order to be steadfast and  immovable, we must know God and know Him intimately. We must be able to hear  His voice when the storms of life are swirling around us. We must also know the  overcoming power that belongs to us in the name of Jesus and through the blood  of Jesus. We will remember that “this, too, shall pass” and keep our sights set  on the victory that is sure, rather than allow ourselves to be tossed and  turned by everything the devil assaults us with. As we do, God’s power is  released in our lives. Whatever you might be facing today, let patience do the  work that God desires in you.

God’s word for you today: Be steadfast in God,  and give the devil a nervous breakdown!
