BE STRONG IN THE LORD
This Coronavirus has zapped our strength. We need to remain strong in the Lord. That is the only way we will make it. His strength enables us to get through this oppressive virus, and all aspects of our lives: sickness, death, heartache and pain. We must remain strong in the lord. Life’s problems weaken us, but His strength helps us to overcome all our weaknesses. I pray that no matter what you are going through, you remain strong in the Lord. Know that whatever you are going through, it shall pass. Rely on Him, who keeps you in perfect peace. Ephesians 6:10 is our reference today and speaks of the Lord’s power.
“A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.”
Paul, the faithful servant of the lord urges the people he loved to be strong in the Lord. Put on the whole armor of God, he writes. He is mindful that God can give them the victory when they put their trust in Him. Paul does not want them to get weak or to use carnal weapons. He wants them to be strengthened in the power made available when they find themselves with limited resources. He wants them to be spiritually equipped for battle, knowing that they could fall to the principalities and darkness of this world. They wrestle against spiritual wickedness in high places. As believers, the Word instructs us to put on the whole armor of God so that we can fight off the rulers of this world. We do not serve a weak, feeble God, but a God who is strong and mighty. We need to be strong in Him and know that victory will be ours.
