Your Darkest Moment Isn’t Your Destiny In a frightening world, it’s tempting to question the promises of God. Yet one word rings out in Scripture as a call to God’s people: stand. From Moses at the Red Sea to Jesus with His disciples, stand is the call to believe God and hold fast to His promises. In Stand, Marian Jordan Ellis explores what it looks like to be faithful in a crumbling world. She addresses questions like these: How do Christian leaders share God’s good news in a culture that wants to silence their voices? How do parents hold on to hope when their children are more in love with the world than with Jesus? How do Christians battle the voices of shame and insecurity? Stand looks at the stories of real people—from Scripture and from today—who chose to stand firm and “win life.” Jesus promises that the evil of this present world is not our future reality. Stand offers inspiration and practical tools to stand in your faith, your convictions, and your trust in a God who never fails.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I often struggle with deciphering true biblical teaching versus society's interpretation of Jesus and His word. In Stand, Marian uses scripture to lay out what standing looks like, and why it is important to stand in today's world. Raising young children I often feel defeated with the choices that they are exposed to and the life choices that they will have to make. This book has already helped me in seeing what I can do to remain steadfast in this world. I can't wait to share this book with my friends and family.
