CONTENT AND CONFIDENT
Uphold my steps in Your paths, that my footsteps May not slip.
Christians who are spiritually stable have a testimony that honors Christ. That’s the kind of testimony the apostle Paul had. Bound in chains as a prisoner of the Roman Empire, he remained content and confident in the Lord (Phil. 4:11, 13). Yet so many believers are not confident. In fact, unbelievers find it difficult to understand how a Christian who believes in an all-sufficient God can live as though God were weak.
Perhaps there have been times when you felt crushed, weak, and unable to stand. You know what it’s like to lose your spiritual balance. We face strong temptations and trials in this life. Nevertheless, it’s vital for us to be spiritually stable not only for our own well being but also for our Christian testimony before the lost world. So make sure you are depending on God to help you stand, not on yourself.
