A good quarter century ago, my daughters enjoyed playing with Weebles. These egg-shaped figures have unique weighted bottoms that allow them to wobble. But they’re resilient. Weebles spring back to a standing position whenever they are pushed over. The advertising jingle proclaimed, “Weebles wobble, but they don’t fall down.”
Christians, whether young or old, have something in common with these fun-to-play-with characters. When the enemy of our soul tries to bring us down, we may stumble but not fall. Through faith in Christ, we can stand our ground and overcome. When our flesh and mind want to throw in the towel, God’s Holy Spirit empowers us to persevere.
At times, we may wobble through some valley lows, but with God’s help, we can make it through. Psalm 94:18 (NIV) says, “When I said, ‘My foot is slipping,’ your unfailing love, Lord, supported me.” Nothing formed against us can succeed when our entire being trusts in God. Our opponent is the one who has fallen, and when Christ returns, the enemy will be cast into the abyss of hell forever more!
Stay strong. Remain faithful. Hope onward!
Thank the Lord for His promise to you in Isaiah 54:17 (NKJV): “No weapon formed against you shall prosper.”
Ask the Holy Spirit to give you strength for this day to stand strong against the enemy.
