Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional For Monday 12th July 2021
There’s no better time to be strong in the Lord,
taking advantage of all His might, than in these
last days. You have to be strong in the spirit. Paul the
Apostle, in writing to the church in Ephesus, said,
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the
power of his might” (Ephesians 6:10). How important
this is for us today.
There’ll be a time of testing in your life, and in that
testing period, you must remain in the Lord. There may
be so much happening in your life the challenges may
be fierce and the storms raging hard but be strong
in the Lord in His grace. He said, “Therefore, my
beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always
abounding in the work of the Lord…” (1 Corinthians
The Word says in Matthew 10:22, “…he that
endureth to the end shall be saved.” You have to not
just finish but finish stronger than how you started.
That’s the path of the righteous it’s “…like the light
of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until full
day” (Proverbs 4:18 ESV).
In Christ, we get stronger the glory continues to
increase. It’s from faith to faith, glory to glory, and grace
heaped upon grace. That’s the life He’s given us. As
long as you’re strong in the Lord—keeping His Word in
your heart and in your mouth—you’ll continually walk
in victory and dominion.
Yes, there’re tests, trials and challenging times in
our journey of faith, but the Bible says, “If thou faint in
the day of adversity, thy strength is small” (Proverbs
24:10). To gripe and cower when situations challenge
your faith is to checkmate your chances of promotion.
Recall what the Spirit says in James 1:2: “My brethren,
count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations.”
He knows that victory is in our spirit.
Never be overwhelmed by any situation, for
there’s a strengthener in you—the Holy Spirit. And in
Him, by Him, and through Him you’ve overcome: “Ye
are of God, little children, and have overcome them:
because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in
the world” (1 John 4:4). Praise God!
