DEVO 10.17.22

“...be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.” - Ephesians 6:10

- Today, before you face any of the challenges ahead. - Before any difficulties, struggles, temptations or roadblocks… - Are you aware of what you have? - Do you know that you are equipped by God and for God for a purpose. - The purpose is to overcome! - Not to be overcome by your circumstances but to overcome each and every one of them. - You are specially crafted by God to do just that. - In Ephesians 6:10, just before the apostle Paul writes about the armor of God that we need to put on, He tells us what we have. - He says, “Be strong”. - Be strong is translated from a Greek work “endunamoo”. - Endunamoo conveys the idea of being infused with an excessive dose of dynamic inner strength and ability. - t’s a word that portrays “a power that is being deposited into something, such as a container or vessel.” - In other words, you are the vessel and His Spirit is the Power. - If you have given your life to Jesus Christ and made Him Lord and Savior, then you have the Spirit of God living in you! - Romans 8:11 says, "The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you.” - Ephesians 1:13 says, “You were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.” - He lives in you...You've got the power! - All of that power is available to you today! - This means that you don’t have to face your problems alone. - You don't have to rely on your own wisdom and strength. - Ask God to fill you with His Spirit. - Receive a fresh touch from Him. - Then, use His strength. - Use His wisdom. - Follow His leading. - He has all the power you need to live as an overcomer. - 1 Peter 1: 3 says, "For His divine power has bestowed on us [absolutely] everything necessary for [a dynamic spiritual] life and godliness, through true and personal knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.” - You have…Yes, you currently have everything you need to live a dynamic spiritual life! - Go and live Dynamic! - Have a great Monday!
