Jeremiah 50:2, 42

"Set up a standard...Set in array, like a man for battle..."

Like Daniel, it is purposing beforehand to do what we know to be right. (Daniel 1:8) Then -- when the enemy advances and tempts us, we have already decided our course of action: obedience.

The man that believes will obey; failure to obey is convincing proof that there is no true faith present. To attempt the impossible God must give faith or there will be none and He gives faith the the obedient heart only.
-A. W. Tozer

"Fight the good fight of faith,
lay hold on eternal life, to which you were called..."
1 Timothy 6:12
