Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither – whatever they do prospers” (Psalm 1:1-2).

Chinese Christian Watchman Nee wrote a book entitled Sit, Walk, Stand that changed my world when I was a new Christian. He pointed that that we must begin by perceiving that we are Seated in heavenly places with Jesus Christ. We must see ourselves in spiritual places, not in natural places. I am a citizen of plant earth, and a citizen of Heaven. I was born into the world, but I am seated with Christ in High Places. We must see ourselves as spiritual.

The second step is to Walk with Christ. I can’t stay seated, but I must get up and move in step with Him. He wants to change the world and the change begins with you and I. A walk demands that we are making progress and moving forward.

The third step is that we Stand. Paul says in Ephesians that we must put on the full armor of God so that we can defend against the spiritual attacks of the enemy, and that after all attacks have been released, that we should stand. With all the negatives in this world, how many of us are still standing for Christ? To stand firm in the face of many obstacles is the power of the Holy Spirit, Who never gives up on us.

Let’s Sit, Walk and Stand together.
