Today’s coloring page is a reminder to Stand Firm.
We are engaged in a great battle, but God does not leave us defenseless. Far from it. Not only does He fight on the behalf of His children, but He also clothes us in His own armor.
We see evidence of this truth time and again in Scripture.
God fights while we stay still
“The LORD will fight for you while you keep silent.” – Exodus 14:14
God fights while we stay faithful
“But you, O man of God, flee from these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made the good confession before many witnesses.”- 1 Timothy 6:11-12
God fights while we stand firm
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
“Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” – Ephesians 6:10-17
I do not know what struggles you may be facing in life right now. But I pray you’ll make good use of the tools with which God has equipped you to handle those struggles. In His strength, may you rise to meet every challenge and walk in victory!
