Marian latest book, Stand, is a call to live out overcoming faith. Stand means to hold fast to our God-confidence and not lose ground. It is the call to rise up against the forces that oppose us and hold our position of victory instead of cowering in defeat. For the Christ follower, the call to stand speaks of our posture of faith in the midst of trials, our position of victory during an attack, our power in Christ to overcome, and our perseverance to the end.
God’s Word is filled with specific promises to those who stand—promises of blessings, eternal rewards, and everlasting life. Jesus summed up the promises with these words: “You will win life.” The battles we face are not in vain. Our fight to overcome sin is not futile. The struggle to hold fast to faith in the midst of trials is not pointless, because great honor and blessings await those who stand firm.
