Really, what strength does faith have if you don’t stand firm in it.
Weak knees have a hard time taking anyone anywhere except down. Though a firm faith may take you straight to the guillotine.
Which optional end do you choose to live with?
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world.
1 Peter 5:6-9 NASB
