Isaiah 33:6 “And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the Lord is his treasure”.
God desires that we stand immovable no matter the darts the devil may throw at us. He is fully aware that the devil roars always, running to and fro seeking for whom to devour. So, God demands that we stand from and unmoved.
This is the reason Paul wrote in Romans 8:35 “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?”
A lot of Christians fidget in the face of crisis. A lot deny the fact that they are believers. Some face the challenge of barrenness, but they are swayed that’s why they start seeking for solution every other places aside God.
The three Hebrew children were faced with the challenge of bowing down to the golden image erected by Nebuchadnezzar. When you look at the situation that surrounded them, they could have easily given up. They were taken into exile where they are not staying with their parents. Their pastors and spiritual leaders were not visible, yet they still believed in what they have been taught from the word, not to bow down to any graven image or any other god. They stood firm. They were stable in their belief in God. They trusted Him even to the point of death, to the point that they said to the king ,even if God didn’t show up to save them, they still would not bow down to the image. They were not unstable Christians who are moved with every wind of doctrine.
So, Paul went ahead to write in Romans 8: 37 – 39
“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Paul also went ahead to encourage believers in1 Corinthians 15: 58, “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord”.
However, all these can only work for those who are standing stable, immovable and firm in the Lord.
