TOPIC: Be Strong In The Lord

SCRIPTURE: Finally, my brethren, be STRONG in the Lord, and in the POWER of his MIGHT (Ephesians 6:10).

Rhapsody of Realities For Today 10 July 2022 MESSAGE

Notice the three words underlined in our opening verse; I’ll explain them one after the other. The first one is “strong.” In Luke 1:80, talking about John the Baptist, the Bible says, “And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.”

Also, in Luke 2:40, the Bible talks about another child who “…grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.” This is Jesus. So, John the Baptist and Jesus waxed strong in spirit, meaning that they became strong.

The word, “power” is from the Greek, “kratos” which means strength. The next word, “might” is from the Greek, “ischus” which means force that one has the ability to wield or apply. What’s God telling us? He’s saying, “Be strong in the strength of the Lord and in His ability to apply force.” What amount of force is God able to apply in a situation? Take advantage of it; take advantage of God’s ability. Hallelujah!

Remember, it’s the Spirit’s might and not your might. Apply His strength and not your strength. Trust in Him with all your heart. Trust what He can do. That’s why you have to know Him to have an idea of how much He’s able to do. The Bible says, “And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee” (Psalm 9:10).

Consider David who went into battle with Goliath, not with a sword or a spear, but with a sling and five smooth stones. When the giant, Goliath, stepped forward against him, he didn’t turn back; rather, he charged towards Goliath and struck him down with just a stone. David was strong in the Lord and applied God’s strength to defeat the giant. Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Be strong in God’s truth.

I’m triumphant forever, because I’m born of God and live by His Word. No matter what the enemy throws at me, I’m unflustered because greater is He that’s in me than he that’s in the world. I’m strong in the Lord and in the power of His might to do exploits! Hallelujah!
