Isaiah 8:17, 18 (NLT)


“Our witness to a watching world, in these times of great disturbances when people are trusting in all sorts of things other than God, will be compelling in direct proportion to our stand before God.”


Our Stand Before Him

1. An active inactivity

"To us, waiting is wasting. To God, waiting is working." - Louie Giglio

  • Attentiveness
  • Focus
  • Responsiveness

Exodus 14:14; Isaiah 40:28-31; 64:4; Lamentations 3:25 (ESV)


2. An active anticipation

"When our sense of hope is strong, we thrive inside."

  • God will respond
  • God will restore
  • God will redeem

Jeremiah 29:10-14, Romans 12:12; Hebrews 6:10-19; 1 Peter 1:3


3. An active activity

"Trust in the basis for intimate fellowship with God."

  • Trusting Him
  • Obeying Him
  • Standing in Unity for His sake

2 Chronicles 30:12; Psalm 133; Romans 12:3-21
