"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might."
(Eph. 6:10)

God tells us to be strong in the Lord. This word "strong" means to empower, to enable and to increase in strength. We are built up in strength through our relationship with the Lord Jesus and by means of His power we move from being weak and frail to being strong and mighty. He is daily working it all out on our behalf.

The Message Bible says: "And that about wraps it up. God is strong, and he wants you strong."

Let the extraordinary might of the Lord make you sturdy and tough. Receive all the power the Lord has to give. Live in awareness that the ability to succeed as a Christian doesn't come from will power or by won't power but by the power God is willing to bestow on us daily. Be strong in God today.

Today's Thought to Take With You:
I am strengthened in the Lord. His might and power are mine. I have the ability to be successful today by the power, which He imparts to me.
