My Dearly beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the name of the Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ. The Lord has strengthened and guided us thus far. It is impossible to live a righteous life in this sinful, contaminated world with our own strength. Only by the Lord’s strength can we progress. This is what Apostle Paul firmly declares with faith,
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13).
The people of this world undertake various exercises to showcase their strength. They consume several health drinks to acquire strength. These practices strengthen the body, but our inner man is debilitated and restless. It is during such weary times that we need to cry out to God for strength to overcome these diseases and temptations. You will perceive a new strength descending and empowering you. He is a God who gives strength and sustenance to the deprived.
Perhaps Satan’s schemes have incapacitated you, or the losses you have faced have debilitated you, or the sickness you have endured has made you frail. Remember Christ who strengthens you is always with you! He will not let your foot slip! He who watches over you neither slumbers nor sleeps! He will strengthen your tottering knees! David relied totally on the Lord as he says in Psalm 18:1 “O Lord my strength”. Similarly, let us learn to live with the Lord’s strength.
Dear Children of God, we obtain strength by our faith in God, the Bible says “that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God” (1 Corinthians 2:5).
God empowers us when we put our faith in Him. We can achieve great and mighty things by our faith in God. Our faith can help us conquer the world. Believe and you will see the glory of God. The Bible says this about Sarah, “By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.” (Hebrews 11:11).
Her old womb was invigorated by her faith in God. It’s a known fact that it’s impossible for an aged mother to give birth to a child. But Sarah trusted God. And God renewed her strength. Many times, we repeatedly confess our sins during prayer instead we should make faith confessions. Ephesians 1 is filled with such faith confessions. Continually keep confessing them. We read about many heroes of faith in the Bible. You will receive the same strength they acquired. The impossible becomes possible. God has given us a spirit of power! Therefore, be bold! Be strong!
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. May my children inherit blessings as they spend time in your presence. Give them the grace to daily wait in your presence, so that they will mount on wings like the eagle and soar to greater blessings! Let them rejoice in your blessings. Protect them from all evil.
