Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might (Ephesians 6:10).
"Be strong in the Lord and the power of His might" is a message that I need to remember. I need to trust in the Lord, not myself, to be strong in the Lord's power, not my own. I know that I am relying on my strength when I am fearful and struggling, trusting in myself instead of Christ. It is only when we realize how weak we really are, that we will turn from ourselves and truly trust in the Lord.
Therefore I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in distresses, in persecutions, in difficulties, in behalf of Christ; for when I am weak, then I am strong (2 Corinthians 12:10 BSB).
When we abide in ourselves and our problems, we drift away from God. Apart from Christ, we are easily distracted, overwhelmed and defeated, able to do nothing of real value for the Lord or anyone. It is only when we abide wholeheartedly in the Him and the power of His might that the Spirit leads us into fruitfulness.
I am the vine and you are the branches. The one who remains in Me, and I in him, will bear much fruit. For apart from Me you can do nothing (John 15:5 BSB).
Jesus must be first in our life. We need to utilize His supernatural life and power that dwells in us. When we see ourselves yoked to Him, we are strong and courageous, walking above our circumstances in His strength, assurance and peace.
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love (1 Corinthians 16:13-14 BSB).
Let's focus on the Lord's power and strength so the Holy Spirit can lead us out of fear and into faith. In Christ, all things are possible for those who believe.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight (Proverbs 3:5 BSB).
