BE STRONG IN THE LORD

Ephesians 6:10 (KJV) Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 
Emeka had to work closely with some men who he knew were deeply into the occult. Emeka was representing his company and they were representing theirs. These men were so sure of themselves, and it was clear to Emeka that they drew their confidence from the fact that they belonged to a powerful occult group.

There was a particular time when the two parties (Emeka and the two men) had a conflict of interest, and the men behaved as if Emeka should understand to let them have their way because of who they were or what they belonged to. Emeka bluntly refused. “You people have been behaving as if you own the world, but you don’t. Because I haven't bragged does not mean I don’t know who I belong to. If you were really as powerful as you think, you would have known not to mess with me a long time ago”. These words Emeka said invoked great fear in those men because they understood that he knew what he was talking about. "he wouldn’t have such courage to confront us if he didn’t have something" they thought.

As a Christian, Emeka had superior power to those men and he knew it. He was strong in the Lord, and he could not be intimidated by people with inferior powers. They were the ones who ended up being intimidated.

Many Christians are defeated because they do not really understand the incomparable power of God that is at work for them. Ephesians 1:18-19 shows us that this understanding is a function of spiritual enlightenment.

Go into today remembering that all authority in heaven and on earth now belongs to your Lord who lives in you. Walk always in the consciousness of this truth and pray without ceasing.

Prayer: Lord, please help me walk in the full understanding of who I am in you. Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
