Finally, be strong in the Lord and His mighty power. – (Ephesians 6:10, NIV)
Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and His powerful strength. – (Ephesians 6:10, CEB)
Last of all I want to remind you that your strength must come from the Lord’s mighty power within you. – (Ephesians 6:10, TLB)
Strength is a peculiar thing. We can work hard to build it up, yet there are variables beyond our control that can take it away in an instant or over time. The strength that is sustained within us, is strength of heart that comes from the Lord. His strength is that which grants us the resolve to keep rising, even when what lies before us is heavy, and often far more than we can bear. Though physical strength is both a blessing and a gift from God, it is the strength within us, that He deposits by His Spirit, that will carry us through all of the days of our lives. May we ever seek to be strengthened by the Lord in His mighty power, so that we are equipped to do all that to which we are called.
Be strong in the Lord,
And His great power;
We can trust in Him,
Our safe Strong Tower.
He strengthens our hearts,
Emboldens our minds;
Grants us the resolve,
Move as we’re designed.
No matter what comes,
He’s faithful to be;
Present with His strength,
To help in our need.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that we can be strong in You and Your mighty power, no matter what comes our way. Thank You that though physical strength is a blessing and a gift, it is strength of heart that comes from You that will carry us through the trials that life provides. Forgive us for not seeking You to supply the strength we need and teach us to trust You for all of our days. Show us how to love those around us in a way that strengthens hearts and minds, just as You do for us. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we give You praise for Your strength and power that You provide within us as we turn in trust to You. Amen.
May God be gracious to us and bless us and make His face shine upon us. – Psalm 67:1
