Strong In the Lord
Have you ever felt weak physically, emotionally, and/or spiritually? There was a time when the disciples were out at sea in a boat with Jesus when a storm arose. Jesus was sleeping in the boat, and to the disciples, they felt like Jesus didn't care about their life. They felt emotionally and physically weak; however, Jesus did care about them and wanted to be their strength. There is a spiritual battle that we are all in, and the devil will do anything he can to destroy your life, weaken your faith, and cause you to lose sight of God. It is crucial that we are girded in the armor of the Lord to be able to defend ourselves against the devil. However, even though we have the armor on and prepared to fight, we still need God's power and strength to be able to win. There are going to be times when we feel like we can't make it anymore, or that it is pointless to keep fighting because it may seem like we aren't winning. This is when we need to remember that our strength comes from the Lord and that we need Him to overcome the battles in life. God wants us to be stable through Him, which can only happen when our strength is His strength. His strength and power will never run out. Don't wait till you are in the middle of the storm to cry out to Jesus as the disciples did. Prepare yourself each day, and remember to be strong in the Lord.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Ephesians 6:10 (KJV)
