Believe And Stand Firm


Believe And Stand Firm
By Christine Hare Tate

Weariness can plague us
when we are under duress,
because our own endeavors
end up causing us distress!

Our deeds are only fruitful
When God is at the wheel,
despite our best efforts
and time consuming zeal.

When you pray by faith
As God said we should do,
trust His perfect timing
believing He heard you!

God often tries our faith,
and in seasons of drought…
believe and stand firm
leaving no room for doubt.

God is never sleeping and
hears every supplication…
we should expect His answer
with great anticipation!


‘If you already have something, you don’t need to hope for it. But, if we look forward to something we don’t have yet, we must wait patiently and confidently. The Holy Spirit helps us in our distress. We don’t even know what we should pray for, nor how we should pray. The Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. The Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will. God causes all things to work together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.’
[Romans 8:24-28]
