1 Corinthians 16:13-14 (NKJV) Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.Let all that you do be done with love.
When Brian lost his job under very unfair circumstances, his lawyer and friends in the office told him to be strong as they waited for justice to serve its course. In due time, Brain’s overbearing boss who terminated his employment was fired from the company when the legal battle became an embarrassment to the company. Brian was reinstated with a huge settlement.
In today’s Bible verse we are reminded to ‘be Strong’. This is not the first time in scripture we are told to be strong (see Ephesians 6:10).
Why should we ‘be strong’ as believers? Because we are in warfare against the prince of this world and his kingdom. But the good news is that as long as we stand fast in the faith, we would always come out conquerors. The victory that overcomes the world is appropriated by our faith (1 John 5:14).
Those who refuse to be strong are those who compromise their faith because of trials and temptations [orchestrated by the Prince of this world]. One of the surest signs of this is when believers begin to compromise with sin and refuse to repent but rationalize.
Go into today remembering that as long as you stand strong and unwavering in the faith, you will overcome every single battle waged against you by the Prince of this world.
“1 John 4:4 (KJV) 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.”
Prayer: Father, help me stand strong in the faith long enough to see my victory delivered, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
