“Be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might…” (Eph. 6:10)
How strong are you? Are you looking for strength?
Everything that the Lord asks of us, He has more than provided for. You and I may have different kinds of strength that we rely on. May be you are emotionally strong and your emotional strength is the anchor that holds your home or work together. Perhaps you can withstand a lot of pressure and don’t easily buckle under stress. However the most important strength is the strength in the Lord. True Christian strength is of the spirit for we are not fighting against flesh and blood enemies, but against evil powers in the unseen world. Praise God that these powers have already been defeated, declared losers and will soon be completely annihilated from the face of the universe.
So stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armour of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. (Eph. 6:13-17 NLT)
How powerful is God? How mighty is He? He is all-powerful. Let us not look at our own hearts, our own ability, or our own intellect. No. Let us look to Christ.
The Bible tells us that if we are in Christ we are more than conquerors.
