Verse of the Day: Be Strong in the Lord and in the Power of His Might–Ephesians 6:10-11
“Finally, draw your strength from the Lord and from his mighty power. Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil” –Ephesians 6:10-11.
Saint Paul wrote the letter of Ephesians to the early church to help assist in strengthening their faith. He wanted them to rely solely on the Lord’s grace when attempting to stand firm against the temptations of the world. In the concluding portion of his letter, Paul reminded the Church to draw their strength from the Lord and His mighty power (not their own); to put on the Armor of God daily (Eph 6:10-18) in order to withstand the cunning attacks of the devil. Just as Paul reminded them of this then, we too are to be reminded of it today.
No matter what kind of situation you find yourself in, draw all your strength from the Lord and His power. Put on the armor of God every morning and thank Him for His protection. God is always with you. He is your sole source of everything good, trustworthy, and safe. Stay close.
