“You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.” 2 Timothy 2:1 NIV
“Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 NLT
My strength is not because I have developed personal resiliency. My strength is not in my ability to withstand a beating or lift hundreds of pounds. Our strength as those who are in Christ is just that: IN CHRIST. He is our strength.
He empowers us to do good works. He empowers us to withstand devastating news. He strengthens us to battle illness. He strengthens us to do the right thing when the wrong thing is so much easier and tempting.
Believers in Jesus, God would tell you today…
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 NIV
BE STRONG IN HIM!
