Luke 21: 17-19 ” All men will hate you because of Me. But not a hair of your head will perish. By standing firm you will gain life.”

Standing firm in the middle of trials and tests can take herculean strength on our part.  For just standing firm and not surrendering to the circumstances can take every bit of our patience and perseverance.  That’s when standing firm I think takes on a active connotation…you may not be moving forward…but you’re sure as not falling back.  Standing firm then means endurance, long-suffering, and self-control.
