Metaphysical meaning of stand (rw)
stand--To hold fearlessly to the truth that Spirit is doing its perfect work and that there is no cause for alarm. Endurance is necessary to a soldier, and everyone who aspires to win the good fight of self must be able to stand against whatever comes. But before we can stand we must be prepared to meet adverse thoughts and overcome unworthy desires.
