BE STRONG

BE STRONG

You don’t charge someone to be strong if there is no task to be performed or if pressure is not required, either for motion or putting up resistance against an opposing force. In the physical realm, mere movement requires strength. This explains why a sick person or a person just recovering from an ailment finds it difficult to walk. Spiritually, you need to be strong. In today’s Bible reading, the Lord commands us to be strong, and He gives two reasons why we should be:
1. That ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
2. That ye may be able to withstand in the evil day.
There are evil forces that want to short-change a child of God’s life regarding the good things that God has in store for him or her. These spiritual forces are listed in Ephesians 6:12 as: principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places. These spiritual entities attack either directly or through their human agents namely: witches, wizards, and people with familiar spirits etc. They cause harm, sorrow and calamities, including abortion of pregnancies and barrenness. They give spirit husbands spirit wives and abort prospective contract deals; they are responsible for a myriad of misfortunes. As you know, the Bible says that the thief’s (Satan) mission is to steal – stealing joy, peace etc; to kill – through sickness, diseases, calamities, tragedies, business failures etc, and to destroy – i.e. the complete and ultimate devastation of a man’s destiny in Hell. In the Name of Jesus, you will not become a victim of Satan’s mission in any of these areas. What Jesus has for those who belong to Him is life in great abundance.

Some years ago, a young lady who for the second time had failed her Ordinary Level exams refused to eat for days, grieving over her failure. Within this period, a fight ensued between her and another young girl. Though this grieving lady ordinarily should have dealt decisively with here adversary, the reverse turned out to be the case. Why? Because the strength she needed wasn’t there, having not eaten for days. Spiritually, the food for our spirit man is the Word of God. One of the basic things necessary for a child of God is the Word of God. It serves as spiritual food for the supply of the needed spiritual calories (1 Peter 2:2, Colossians 3:16). The Word sanctifies and purifies us. We are to study it, meditate on it, memorise it and of course, obey it.

Memorise:
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Ephesians 6:10

Read:
Ephesians 6:10-13

Bible in one year:
Isaiah 40:9-42:25
Psalm 37: 33-40

Action point:
Take definite steps to improve your level of interaction with the word-study, meditate on and memorise striking passages. Also appoint an accountability partner to help you.

TURNING WEAKNESSES INTO BLESSINGS

Our God is a God of miracles. He moves in mysterious ways and He still calls people to His side today. Many people have the call of God on their life but do not know. Some people believe they are too weak to be used of God, while some others, who are already in a position of service, are facing frustration or even...More
