Be Strong In The Lord

TODAY’S VERSE
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.”
Ephesians 6:10

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We need strength. There are so many circumstances in life that bring us to our knees – suffering with chronic pain, struggling to pay the bills, arguing with teenage children, feeling discouraged about our job or rocking from a ruined relationship. All of us have a story. None of us goes unscathed. But we do not have to bear our sorrows all alone and afraid. We don’t have to be helpless victims. Instead, Paul ends Ephesians with this word, “Finally, be strong.” Being strong is having a resilient attitude, a hopeful spirit, a resolve to never give up, to fight and to hang on. But how do we do this? How can we get the strength we need? Listen to how Paul finishes his verse. “Be strong in the LORD and in His mighty strength.” What a difference a few words can make. We can be strong in His strength. His strength is mighty. His strength is loving. And today, His strength is your strength. Like a child is carried in the strength of his father’s arms, God will carry you. Today, be strong; but not in yourself. Be strong in the Lord and His mighty power!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, You told me to be strong, however I have tried to be strong in my own power not Yours. I confess that I need Your power. I cannot live the life You want me to by myself. Please forgive me and help me be strong in You and Your mighty power. In Jesus’ name. AMEN

The Love Of God

TODAY’S VERSE
“You love them as much as you love me.”
John 17:23 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Jesus is praying to His Father. And He shares something simply astounding about you and I. He said. “I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you.” He continues by saying, “May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.” I know I should probably write about the unity that Jesus wants us to live in. He makes it really clear that people will judge Him by the way we live with each other. But I just can’t get past the phrase, “You love them as much as you love me.” Jesus said this! I have a hard time grasping all the meaning of the Trinity, but I do know that God the Father has an unbelievable, almighty, everlasting, incredible love for God the Son. And Jesus said that this same love is what the Godhead has for you and I. I pray that today God will grant us the grace to really fathom what that means. Might knowing that He loves us that much fill our day with peace and joy.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, thank You for Your infinite, inconceivable love for me. Help me today to live in its awareness and rejoice in its meaning.
AMEN
