The Lord Is Your Strength
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.”
– Ephesians 4:10 (NIV)
We must realize that part of Satan’s plan for end-time believers is to make us weary. Daniel 7:25 gives a vivid description of a vision the prophet Daniel received regarding the last days: “And he ‘shall wear out the saints of the Most High'” (AMP).
But God wants you to be encouraged. Romans 8:37 (AMP) gives Christians this good news: “Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.”
‘More than conquerors’ means that before trouble ever starts, we already know who wins. I like that, don’t you?
You can purpose in your heart to maintain such an intimate relationship with God through prayer and His Word that you are constantly being strengthened by the power of His promises. Intimacy with God produces strong Christians who can outlast the devil!
Live your life totally confident in God’s strength and have no fear of the trials that can produce weary warriors and fainting saints. Remain strong ‘in Him’ and in the power of His might.

Dear God Almighty, You alone are my strength. I won’t let Satan make me a weary Christian, but I’ll remain strong in my intimacy with You. So shall it be in Jesus Name. Amen.
