Feeling squished … time to stand up

 by sepultura


Quit living in the underworld


Are you a resident of the underworld?  It is the plane where your view of yourself, your accomplishments, and your worth always fall short.  You find yourself apologizing more times than not for whom you are or what you feel you have failed to achieve. 

It is the plane where you assume a wrongful servant attitude.  You assign yourself an underling position.  You reside in the underworld, under anything and everything that comes your way.  You unconsciously agree with the enemy.

Do you recognize this person?  Is this you, or shades of you?

It is time to stand up!


Stand up in the face of judgment – To his own master he stands or falls.  And he will stand,  for the Lord is able to make him stand … Rom 14:4


Stand up in the face of the enemy – Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand … Eph 6:13


Stand firmStand  firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place … Eph 6:14


Stand against the devil’s schemesPut on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes … Eph 6:11


Stand in the grace of God through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God … Rom 5:2


Stand up and praise the Lord

Stand up and declare His promises

Stand up and declare the blood

Stand up and rebuke the enemy

Stand up to a woe is me complex

Stand up and face what you fear

Stand up and declare you fearfully and wonderfully made

Stand up and celebrate God’s creation … YOU


Stand up and receive all God has for you.  Forget what is past; push forward with a determined resolve to receive everything God has purposed for you and through you. 


It is time to stop judging and condemning yourself!  The enemy doesn’t need any assistance in that department.  Take your hands off yourself and allow God to change what may need changing. 

Break the habit patterns of speaking and assuming the underworld posture.  Stop allowing these things to squish you.


Live out loud with declaration.  As a man thinks in his heart so is he.  It is time to change your thinking.  Your countenance will change, your attitude will change, and your friends will be in wonder of the new you. 

Tell them you had an expensive makeover.  It was indeed costly, paid for in the blood of God’s Son.

It is time to stand up!
