Strong And Mighty

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- March 4, 2013

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Ephesians 6:10

A body fails for lack of strength, but the human spirit is sustained by strength in God. Yes, God our Savior takes us from strength to strength. His strength gives spiritual discernment to dismiss temporal taunts of discouragement and provides insight to embrace eternal encouragement. Yes, the world offers weakness. Guilt and shame from sinful activity is exhausting, but prayer and perseverance in righteousness are rejuvenating. God’s strength gives focus to walk in wise ways.

Have the wiles of the devil worn you down? Has uncertainty rattled your faith? If so, lean into the Lord and tap into His everlasting strength. Belief in Him will get you through another day and He will arm you with courage to face future temptations. Jesus gives you enough strength for today and you can still trust Him with the cares of tomorrow. Hope in the Lord will renew your strength. Like an IV tube channels liquid nutrients to the body, so hope gives stamina to the soul.

Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31

Those in power succeed well when they depend on Divine power for their success. His mighty power gives us wisdom to know the best decisions to make. His mighty power delivers us from disease and gives us determination to overcome injustice. His mighty power empowers us with inner energy to toil on when we are tired and say no to sin when we are tempted.  Indeed, God’s tower of power suffers no outages, it’s live 100% of the time! He gives us power to share Jesus.

Therefore, as a child of God you are not powerless, but you are empowered by your heavenly Father to be strong in Him. Satan shudders when he sees you in quiet contemplation with Jesus. The enemy knows his deceit and lies are exposed under the powerful light of the Lord. Wise are you to let your weakness become the Lord’s strength. Smart are you to submit your strengths to your Savior, so they are powered by His Holy Spirit. Yes, strong and mighty are you in Christ!

I [Paul] pray you will know his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead. Ephesians 1:19-20

Prayer: Heavenly Father you are my strength and shield. Thanks for empowering me for You.
