Be strong in the Lord and His mighty power. Ephesians 6: 10
Word: Be dressed for service and keep your lamps burning – Luke 12: 35
Be – Personal call for you – God saved our forefathers through thousands of years, even in the middle of famine, war and natural calamities and brought us into this World. God’s sovereign plan in Christ Jesus for you and me was well planned by God before the foundations of the earth (Ephesians 1).
Dressed: Zechariah 3: 1-10 and Ephesians 6 talk about the garment. It is referred to as the Salvation in Christ Jesus and the full armor of God. With these we will be secured and saved by God from satanic attacks. Submit to God and resist the devil in Jesus’ name.
For service: What is the ultimate service for us on this Earth? The answer is simple – sharing the love of Christ Jesus to the people who are in need of salvation. Our life should have a solid foundation in the Word of God. We need to have one desire, one passion, one goal and that is, to proclaim Jesus’ name by our words and actions everywhere (Matthew 7: 24).
Keep your lamps burning: Plug your mind into the power of prayer and be filled with the Holy Spirit, which results in a continuous victorious walk in Christ in all the areas of your life. In which area do you need a continuous victory? Let us ask God like Jacob and He is ready to bless us with a victorious life. In addition, God called us to be a light in the darkness (Matthew 5). Oil lamp needs a continuous supply of oil and if it is an electric lamp it needs a continuous electric supply. Here we can compare oil and electricity with God’s anointment of the Holy Spirit.
Let us spend some time in prayer and re-evaluate our walk with Christ.
Thought: The Sovereignty of God
God is sovereign, He is in charge. When your life seems chaotic, rest in this truth and rest in His arms. God is in control; Jesus is LORD, and the Holy Spirit is with you as Jesus Promised.
Stand firm in Christ
