Our son loved the imaginary mechanical/robotic suits worn by some of his cartoon heroes. He thought it would be so cool to step into something strong and powerful to defeat an enemy.
Scientists have now developed robotic hands, arms, legs and now full mechanical frames to help those who have had spinal cord injuries to walk. In a much more powerful way, we have the Spirit of Christ living within us working to walk us through whatever we are called to walk through and to defeat our enemies.
Notice this verse, “Be strong in the Lord [draw your strength from Him and be empowered through your union with Him] and in the power of His [boundless] might” ~ Ephesians 6:10 (AMP).
Be strong IN the Lord. Strength doesn’t come from our limited bodies, true and unlimited strength comes from God.
Read and know His Word (the Bible), remember all God has done, remember He created everything so He can take care of anything.
You are never powerless. Regardless of how difficult your situation, you are never without God’s power. In Christ, you have power to stand in the gap for your family and friends, your nation, and this world. You have power to stand in prayer.
Through Christ we have power that breaks strongholds, sets captives free, and demolishes any barrier erected by the enemy. God’s power is unlimited, ALL-mighty, and ALL-powerful!
Be strong IN the Lord!
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” ~ Ephesians 6:10-18 (NIV) (Emphasis added)
