“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.” Ephesians 6:10
Do you realize that many people think that disciples of Christ are are very weak and inconsistent?
You hear all about people who say that they love God but do not live as people who actually do love God.
You, however, because you know who you are and whose you are, do not fall into that category. You are stronger than that.
You are wiser than that. You are more focused than that. You know who you are and you are on your way to fulfill your destiny.
Yes, the problems come. Yes, the challenges are there. Yes, the temptations are real. Yes, the pressures of life do exist. All of the above is real, but you are stronger than that. You have One on your side who has enabled you to persist. You have God on the inside who causes you to triumph.
It may be all around you. All the others may be still struggling with their identity and trying to discover who they really are, but you, you have begun the journey of self-discovery and you are stronger than that.
