I Am Strong in the Power of Christ
Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
Strong in the Battle
Today’s promise is short but powerful. A lot is packed into this one little phrase. Sooner or later, you’ll discover you’re living on a spiritual battlefield. You may not see it as you drive to the office or take the kids to school, but a spiritual battle is waging all around you. The forces of darkness are coming against you and your family.
The only way to survive and live in the victory Christ has promised is to live in the strength and power of God.
Victorious Christians understand that their strength does not come from themselves but from the power of Christ in them.
This verse begins with “Be strong.” It’s not a suggestion but a command. Every command of God is wrapped in a promise. God never commands you to do something that He doesn’t provide the resources and power to accomplish.
God commands you to be strong because He knows a spiritual battle is going on all around you. He empowers and strengthens you so you can fulfill His command. It’s not about how strong you are but how strong He is within you.
Many Christians see themselves as weak and needy. They live defeated, unfruitful lives because they never draw on the power God has provided. They never, by faith, step into all God has for them.
A small light bulb is connected to the incredible capacity of the national power grid. Thousands of megawatts are available, but unless someone turns on the switch, nothing happens. There is great potential but no light.
God commands you to be strong in Him. He commands you to tap into His unlimited power and strength.
You are strong. You may not feel like it today, but you are. All of God’s power is available to you. Christ has already provided all the strength you will ever need. As you draw on His strength, you will find new power for the problems of the day. You will see the enemy flee and have victory over every attack as you live in His strength.
Look at that promise again.
Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. – Ephesians 6:10
Make these confessions.
- In Jesus Christ, I am strong.
- I will not be defeated by any attack of Satan.
- I am empowered as I draw upon the strength of the Lord.
- God’s power in me gives victory over every enemy.
In Jesus Name,
In Christ, you are strong. You find strength as you draw on God’s power within you. It’s not a one-time thing, but a continual tapping into the power God provides every moment of every day.
