Philippians 4:1
Stand Fast

Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.

It is not really complicated – it means just stay where you are – don’t move.
To “stand fast” for some means nothing happens, and to others it means good.
Not shifting about from place to place, because one is discontented –
Is what is urged upon the Philippian saints, for whom the apostle was concerned.

It is not easy to remain at one’s post, resolute, alert when the action is elsewhere
Fidelity in duty requires my commitment to my Leader – He who knows and cares
Whether a mother or a shepherd, a soldier or a friend – steadfastness in with concern
Is conduct that is “becoming” whether it has been commanded or is learned.
