Ephesians 6:10 (NET) Finally, be strengthened in the Lord and in the strength of his power.
One of the reasons Blake was so depressed was because he lost all his money in a bad business deal. His mortgage and car payment were due and he knew he was going to lose everything. After learning about the secret of spiritual strength and joy in the Lord, he realized that he had always depended on his money in the bank as his source of security and strength. As he started trusting in the Lord and drawing his strength and security from the Lord, he saw the Lord’s hand restoring his finances and increasing him beyond his imagination. This all happened because he started drawing his strength and security from the Lord.
When a person is strong in the Lord, it means his backup and security in life is the Lord. Many people in this world draw their strength from the amount of money they have in their bank account. In this world, there is a kind of confidence and strength a man with a lot of money will have that an average man who has nothing would not have. What the Lord is telling us today is that the source of our strength in life must always be in the fact that we have Him as our support and security. He is stronger and more reliable than millions in any bank account. He can do for us what money can do and cannot do.
A man who draws his strength and confidence from the arm of flesh(the money he has) cannot be strengthened in the Lord. Such a man would not have sufficient stamina and strength to withstand the powers of darkness and wrestle them unto victory. Remember that our wrestle is not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual forces (see Ephesians 6:12). If our wrestle were against flesh and blood, drawing our strength from the arm of flesh and material wealth would have been sufficient. But since we would have to contend spiritual wickedness in this world, we need to draw our strength from the Lord.
Go into today with the assurance that the Lord is more reliable and faithful than lots of money in the bank. Determine today to let the Lord alone be your source of strength and confidence in this life.
Prayer: Renounce every way you have depended on your wealth rather than on the Lord. Confess that your strength comes from the Lord and in Him alone will you trust.
Confession: I will not trust in money but trust in the Lord with all my heart. I will not serve money but serve the Lord my God. Money will serve me, I will not serve money. In Jesus name. Amen.
-Pst. Abraham Damilola Arigi
