Colossians 1:11 (NET)
Being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might, for the display of all patience and steadfastness, joyfully


When Ramat first believed, she was a very joyful and patient person even though she faced great persecution from her family members and colleagues at work. She did not know that these virtues of patience, steadfastness, and joy, were displayed in her life because she was constantly strengthened in the inner-man through her fellowship with the Lord and with the brethren.

She got transferred to another state where she was no more persecuted in the office. But when she got to that state, she didn’t immediately find a good Christian fellowship. This affected her personal fellowship with the Lord. She noticed that with time, she was no more as joyful and patient as she used to be. She also observed that she was no more as powerful in her spirit. It didn’t take her time to know where the problem was coming from.

One thing we can get from today’s Bible verse is that spiritual strength produces a display of patience, steadfastness and joy. A spiritually sturdy believer will be patient and steadfast in joy, not in heaviness. If you notice that you are becoming impatient and heavy, it is an indication of waning spiritual strength.

When a spiritual reality produces a physical display of virtue in the life of a believer, the believer can choose to reactivate that same spiritual reality by consciously walking in that virtue.

For example, the fruit of the spirit is joy (Gal 5:22). This means when a person is Spirit filled, joy would flow from within, even in contrary situations. But we are also instructed to rejoice in the Lord in the Lord always (Phil 4:4). So even though we may not always feel the fountain of joy flowing from within, we can insist that we will rejoice in the Lord, and this willful joy would reconnect us with the fountain.

Go into today remembering that patience, joy and thanksgiving are signs of spiritual strength. Choosing to walk in these is choosing to stay spiritually strong.
