    - Set, stand and see.

    1. Get into position, the place you are supposed to be. And stay there. Don't move until God tells you.
    2. Stand still. Continue abounding in the work. We are active participants in our deliverance.
    3. See God's deliverance with you.

    - If we believe that Jesus is the Son of God than we are overcomers - we overcome the world.
