Ephesians 6:10 (NKJV) Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
We look for strength in a lot of places: physical fitness, positive thinking, pleasant circumstances, self-focused therapy, money, sex, drugs, bravado… but real strength is found outside of anything we are, or have, or can do.
Christians are the sole beneficiaries of real strength because real strength is found in only one place: “the power of His (Jesus) might”. What is Jesus “might”? It is His essence, who He is inherently, His eternal attributes, His nature, His power.
Jesus is God. Jesus is Eternal. Jesus is Creator. Read Philippians 2. Jesus is All-Everything (Powerful, Knowledgeable, Present). That’s real power… and when we give our lives over totally to Him, the Lord supplies us with all the power and strength needed to live a JOY-FILLED life. Joy is knowing the Truth about life and eternity and transcends circumstances. “Happiness” comes and goes with circumstances.
Think It Over: You need never feel weak or powerless or at the mercy of life’s ups and downs. If you are looking for strength anywhere but “in the power of His might” you’ll eventually be disappointed.
