Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 15:58
Firm in Your Faith
God calls you to be firm and unwavering in your faith. Every day, you face spiritual attacks. Your faith is constantly tested by a world that says you are foolish to believe and the forces of darkness set to discourage you.
False teachers fill the airwaves and the Internet with a watered-down Gospel.Others are out to profit from the Gospel.Amid all these, God calls you to a firm, unchanging trust and faith in Him.
Like today, the New Testament church had to guard against those who tried to dilute or question the Gospel.
Just before this promise, the Apostle Paul wrote a lengthy discussion clarifying the reality of the resurrection of Jesus.
Steadfast and Immoveable
Paul commands us to be steadfast and immovable in our faith.
To be steadfast is to be firm in your faith. It means to hold onto or be wholly convinced by God’s Word. It’s the picture of the tree described in Psalm 1 that has deep roots in the Word of God.
Even when the storms come, you stand firm because you have learned to trust the Word of God. The more you know God’s word, the more stable and secure you will be.
Immovable is a defensive term. No matter what Satan throws at you, you will not be moved in your faith in Christ. You will not be taken in by some charlatan teacher who dilutes the Gospel. You know what you believe and will not be moved.
Again it’s the picture of that tree firmly planted in the Word of God. No matter how hard the wind blows, it will not topple or move. Satan and the world will come against you again and again, but Christ in you makes you immovable in your conviction. Your steadfast faith produces immovable security.
God Empowers You
Remember, God always empowers you to accomplish what He commands. Through the power of Christ in you, you are steadfast and immovable in your faith and walk with Christ. You will identify false teaching because you know the truth of God’s Word.
The result of your steadfast and immovable faith is that you overflow with good works for the Lord.
Look at this promise again.
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.– 1 Corinthians 15:58
Make these confessions.
My faith is strengthened as I trust in God’s Word.
In Jesus’ name, no matter what comes against me, I will not be moved.
What God has commanded, He always empowers me to accomplish.
As I remain steadfast and immovable, my work for the Lord overflows.
In Jesus name,
