Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
Ephesians 6:10

During most of my childhood, we lived in California. One day, I was walking down the street with my newly acquired six-shooter cap guns, a little holster, and a little cowboy hat, feeling very good. But there were some hoodlums standing on the corner who took notice of the little cowboy. They started pushing me around, knocked off my hat, and confiscated my gun belt and cap pistols. Devastated, I went home and found my sister, who is 3 years older than me. She went with me to get my things back, and all of a sudden, I was feeling courageous. My sister was bigger than me—and them. So I retrieved my cap guns and holster, and it felt really good. The problem was that I had to keep my sister with me from that point on, lol.

We can have greater boldness in spiritual battle when we know we are standing with the Lord. Ephesians 6:10 tells us, “Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.” Or literally, “Strengthen yourselves in the Lord.” In our own strength, we are no match for the devil. We don’t want to engage him. Just as the police call for backup when they need to, we need to do the same.

That is why the devil wants to separate us from our power base. His chief aim is to get between us and God and to inspire confidence in ourselves. But Jesus Christ himself is in our corner. Romans 8:33 says, “Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself.”

God is with us. We are not taking on the enemy in our own strength; we are standing in the Lord and in His mighty power. So be strong and confident in everything you do because we are on the winning side. In closing my brothers and sisters: Today, reflect on yourself and what tempts you. Think about it hard and if you know what that one thing or things are, focus on how you are going to overcome it. Focus on a game-plan and stick to it.

Good luck and God Bless you as we part our ways today.
