Dearly Beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The auspicious life giving word of the Lord, for today is from the book of Ephesians 6:10, “Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.”
How can we be strong in the Lord? It is when we hold strongly to the promising words of the Lord, that we will be strong in the Lord. Apostle Paul says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” This is called being strong in the Lord. To those who are thinking that they are weak and getting weaker in their soul or body, the word of God is speaking this verse to strengthen you in Him.
Bible says that the family of David grew strong day by day and the family of Saul became weaker and weaker. When we read why David’s family became strong and Saul’s family grew weak, it was because the Spirit of the Lord was upon David. As the Spirit of the Lord was taken away from Saul, he grew weak day by day. When the Spirit of the Lord is upon a person, they will become stronger. This is called growing strong in the Lord. If those of you who have gone away from the Lord return to Him once again, You will be able to grow strong in the Lord. The Lord is telling you to clothe yourself with Christ who strengthens you. Then you will be able to do all things well. For everyone who are wavering, should come to a conclusion today, that in order to be strengthened by the Lord You must allow the Lord to be within you. Just like Mary chose the good portion that was not taken away from her, you also must choose the good portion of God that will not be taken away from you. Then you will grow in strength day by day. Amen.
