“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might” – Ephesians 6:10
Paul the Apostle knew the Ephesian church were faced with many strong enemies. He therefore encouraged them to be strong in the Lord, that they may be able to meet and defeat their enemies, but reminds them that this could only be possible through strength found in Christ Jesus.
You may have enemies who are cunning and strong, you may have trials that may be too great to handle, you may even have temptations which seems no human power is able to resist - Yet, BE STRONG IN THE LORD AND IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT!
In the strength of the Lord you are able to bear things you think you can’t bear, endure trials you never thought you could endure, and stand when you thought you would become weak. The strength of God can take you beyond your own strength.
In your own life, you can testify of the many times that if it had not been for the strength of the Lord, you do not know how you would have made it through the toughest times, or how you were able to conquer the strongest enemy.
Continue on in that same strength, depending on that strength in all things. Rely on the strength of the Lord everyday of your life, in every area of your life declaring…” I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD” - Psalm 71:16a.
May you be blessed with the abundance of God’s strength to bear trials, perform your duties and glorify his name in your heart, mind and soul according to the riches of his glory. Amen.
