Stand Your Ground, by Pastor Carl H. Stevens.
The Word of God is filled with accounts of great battles fought by men and women who looked to God for the victory. As Christians, we have the promises throughout Scripture to get us through difficult times. When we see the faithfulness of God, we grow in faith. But 1 Samuel 17:52 speaks of the “wounded who fell down by the way.” The wounded are “cast down,” according to Proverbs 7:26. People who have been wounded may stop growing spiritually. The wounded soul is crying out in despair (Job 24:12). It cries out in need.
How does God heal a person who has wounds in his soul? In Jeremiah 30:17, He said, “I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds.” The hands of the Lord make a person whole (Job 5:18). God binds up the wounds and heals the broken heart (Psalm 147:3).
But God also provides spiritual protection—armor to keep us from being wounded further.
When we put it on daily by faith, this armor enables us to resist Satan; it causes him to flee. In this booklet, we will show how God’s armor enables the believer to stand his ground in any battle.
