Description: In this passage, King Ahaz of Judah comes to a major decision point. Confronted with enemy kings banging on the gates of Jerusalem, Isaiah presents him with two options: he can succumb to the pressure or he can stand in faith. Whatever he chooses will have major consequences for himself and the nation he leads. We often find ourselves in a position when crisis comes to our doorstep. God's Word to us in such situations is the same as it was to Ahaz: "Stand firm in faith or you will not stand at all." In today's message we'll explore how real faith in the Lord Jesus strengthens us to stand.
“The nature of the presidency is that sometimes you don't choose which challenges come to your desk. You do decide how to respond.” ― George W. Bush, Decision Points
Takeaway #1
In times of crisis, standing requires FAITH
A working definition of faith: Active obedience and ongoing loyalty to God based on trust in the certainty of His promises, made credible by his character and work, of which our greatest evidence is the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ
Takeaway #2
Standing faith is ACTIVE faith
Takeaway #3
Increasing challenges call for increased faith
Four faith-fueling truths from Isaiah 7:
I. God sees things from a different perspective
II. A remnant will always remain
III. God is with us continually
IV. God's promises are trustworthy
"The way to please God, then is to believe in him; and if there be any possibility of entering heaven without seeing death, faith alone can point the way." - Spurgeon
Takeaway #4
Strong faith is strengthened by mighty LOVE
“When you know you have unconditional love, there is no point in rebellion and no need to fear failure.” ― George W. Bush
ONE BIG THING: Strengthen your faith in Christ and you will STAND!
