A final word. Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power (Ephesians 6:10).
I know there are times when you feel weak or discouraged in life. But you don’t have to live that way! You can be strong in the Lord and in His power. You don’t have to walk around defeated and depressed. The Bible tells us that the joy of the Lord is our strength (Nehemiah 8:10), not our circumstances or the news, or the economy. God’s joy is based on Him! He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Focus on God and not on what’s happening to you.
You know He’s been good to you. Think about what He’s done for you. He’s given you life, and cast your sins away! That in and of itself should give you super natural joy. The enemy can’t take a way what God has given you deep on the inside. So put a smile on your face today and rejoice in the Lord no matter what battles you may be facing, know that your strength is in the Lord.
