Ephesians 6:10 (KJV)Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
During the Second World War, when Hitler and his army was advancing to take over the world with the might of what Winston Churchill referred to as ‘perverted science’, Winston Churchill, the then prime minister of Britain, knew that the only way Britain and the rest of the world would overcome Hitler was if they remained strong and stood their ground in spite of all the overwhelming attacks.
Here’s an excerpt of Churchill’s June 18, 1940 speech to the British house of commons:
“… Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this Island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.
Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, “This was their finest hour.” “
The rest of the Christian world overcame Hitler and his satanic agenda because they insisted on being strong in spite of it all. The battle looked like a lost course, but one sign that they remained strong was that they never spoke words of discouragement but remained positive and optimistic in spite of contrary outcomes. In the end, God gave them victory.As a believer in Christ, the devil knows that if he cannot break you, he cannot win the war against you, because the victory that overcomes him is [recieved through] your faith(see 1 John 5:4), and you cannot walk in faith and discouragement at the same time. He knows his time is short so he will do anything to try and get you to the point of breaking in weakness and unbelief, but if you insist on God’s report and refuse to break down in discouragement, you will overcome through Christ.
Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you stay strong in Him. Resist every spirit of discouragement and weakness today because you are more than a conqueror.
