He took his stand
in the midst of the plot of land, defended it, and defeated the Philistines. The Lord brought about a great victory. 2 Samuel 23:12 MEV

There has never been a battle won by the faint of heart. Satan does not yield to, or flee from, cowards. Defeating the enemy requires fortitude.

Therefore submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  James 4:7 MEV

Having done all, stand. Shammah took his stand in the midst of overwhelming odds and the Lord gave him victory. It took faith in God and courage. He was a well equipped and heavily armed soldier; like every Christian should be.

Therefore take up the whole armor of God that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your waist girded with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, having your feet fitted with the readiness of the gospel of peace, and above all, taking the shield of faith, with which you will be able to extinguish all the fiery arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit always with all kinds of prayer and supplication. To that end be alert with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints. Ephesians 6:13‭-‬18 MEV
