When You Feel Weak

Do you feel weak today; yet you know that you need to “be strong?”  Do you think to yourself, “I don’t know how I can face this situation.  I just feel so weak against it.”  There’s hope, my friend…

Ephesians 6:10 says, “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.”

The Lord never told you that He expected you to be strong!  The Word of God says, “Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.” 

When a policeman stops traffic, are the drivers responding to the individual in the uniform or are they responding to the authority they know the uniform represents?

Followers of Jesus have been delegated authority.  Our strength comes from that authority, and not from ourselves. 

In ourselves, we don’t have the authority we need to navigate this life.  However, in the Lord we have more than enough authority to rule and reign.

Today, recognize that your strength isn’t really what comes naturally, but what has been given to you supernaturally through Christ.  He is your hope of glory (beautiful and ultimate victory) over all “enemies.”



  • Thank you.  I really needed this today.

    Thinking and saying, “I’ve gotta stay strong” is a prescription for failure.  Counting on His strength and the authority is a prescription for peace.
