The Lord is your strength

..Be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him[ that strength which His boundless might provides]–Ephesians 6:10

We must realize that part of Satan’s plan for believers is to make us weary. Daniel 7:25 gives a vivid description of a vision the prophet daniel received: And he..shall wear out the saints of the Most High..

But God wants you to be encouraged. Romans 8:37 gives Christians this good news: Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him who loved us. “More than conquerors” means that before trouble ever starts, we already know who wins. I like that, don’t you?

We can purpose in our hearts to maintain such an intimate relationship with God, through prayer and His Word, that we are constantly being strengthened by the power of His promises. Intimacy with God produces strong Christians who can outlast the devil!

Live your life totally confident in God’s strength and have no fear of the trials that can produce weary warriors and fainting saints. Remain strong in Him and in the power of His might.

From the book “Promises for our everyday lives”
