Stand up straight! I know you hear this all the time. I will keep saying it, (yes, because I am your mother) not just for good posture but for your state of mind. So, when I say, “Stand up straight,” remember to put your shoulders back. Yes, I have the medical documentation to prove good posture really does help you to be a healthier person, but it is also to remind you who you are in Christ.
He has redeemed you. He has made you new. He has given you a hope and a future. You are a child of the one true God. You are an heir to the throne. You are royalty!
Remember what you stand on. The rock of your salvation. Solid ground! The promises in Scripture. We serve a God who is alive. He is with us. We are never alone. He will never leave us or forsake us. He is our loving Father and our guide. When we step out in faith and follow Him it is never on shaky ground because He is making our path straight.
I Corinthians 16:13 “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.”
We are told to be on our guard. We cannot do this slouching and looking at the ground. We have to be alert and ready. We must be courageous and strong. We must be students of the Bible. Study the Word. We must be firm in our beliefs, not doubting, not unsure. We are His children and need to represent Him well.
Our God is all powerful, almighty, strong and everlasting! Why are you slouching? Stand up straight!!
