Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. -Ephesians 6:10 NIV
When God works in you and through you, others pay attention and take notice. Realize that your power and strength come not from you, but from God who is infinitely powerful.
Consider the Israelites. When they approached Canaan, they were afraid of the giants they saw, (Numbers 13:26-33). But what they didn’t know was that those “giants” who lived in the land had heard about what God had done for and through His people and the giants were afraid of God’s people, (Joshua 2:9-11).
However, because the Israelites allowed fear to grip and overpower them, the Israelites were forced to leave the land and not enter for 40 years. By then, the giants had forgotten all the stories they had heard about the Israelites.
What looks giant to you? What looks too massive for God to overcome? What has you tossing and turning at night, instead of resting peacefully?
Remember, at the Name of Jesus, every knee on, above, and below the earth will bow, (Philippians 2:10). Perhaps it’s time you told your giant just how powerful your God is. Perhaps it’s time you walked in and took over your Promised Land.
- Thank God that Christ overcame so that you could overcome.
- Ask the Holy Spirit to keep your focus on Him, which enables you to stand.
