Podcast #371: “Stand My Ground” by Zach Williams

Play episode

I’m Michelle Nezat and I hope to inspire you to discover and meditate on God’s Word through the songs you’re listening to on the radio.

Are you in need of a fight song these days? The struggle is real, but it’s not against who you might think. “Stand My Ground,” a new song by Zach Williams, is a great anthem for your playlist, but it points to truths more meaningful than any lyric.

Let’s learn how to stand our ground and observe a man in the Old Testament standing his ground.

In this episode, I discuss:

Weekly Challenge

Spend some time in Ephesians 6 learning about the armor of God with the focus on standing your ground against the enemy. Read this section of Scripture repetitively and interact with it in new ways. Then consider reading about Daniel and his friends in the first few chapters of the book of Daniel with the focus on how they stood their ground.
