“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.” Ephesians 6:10

In my quiet time this morning I was led to read about putting on the whole armor of God, but in particular this passage to share with you. Let’s face it we all need strength. There are so many circumstances in life that bring us to our knees. All of us have a story. None of us goes unscathed.

But what’s so encouraging is that we do not have to bear our sorrows all alone and afraid. We don’t have to be helpless victims. Instead, Paul ends Ephesians with this word, “Finally, be strong.” Being strong is having a resilient attitude, a hopeful spirit, a resolve to never give up, to fight and to hang on. But how do we do this? How can we get the strength we need? Listen to how Paul finishes his verse. “Be strong in the LORD and in His mighty strength.” What a difference a few words can make. We can be strong in His strength. His strength is mighty. And today, His strength is your strength. Like a child is carried in the strength of his father’s arms, God will carry you. Today, be strong; but not in yourself. Be strong in the Lord and His mighty power!
