Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. – Ephesians 6:10 (NIV)
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. – Ephesians 6:10 (KJV)
One verse, two Bible translations. I like them both and couldn’t decide which to use, so I’ll use both. It’s a powerful way to begin the close the book of Ephesians, a letter addressed to a church. If you ever get the chance to read the six chapters, it’s worth the read.
If you remember anything from reading Ephesians this is the ‘above all else’ verse. The Lord, the one above all else, the creator of our world and gently placed every stay in place, delights in you. He delights in me. He is strong and mighty but also gentle and faithful – always.
Don’t think for a moment longer that He doesn’t care about you, because he truly does. Take a moment to take that in… Read more of the Bible and seek out the strength of this truth. Find a Christian author who has written of their experiences in this truth and listen to the words of Christian music that express this truth. In His presence you will find strength.
Father, thank you for the strength You pour out to us through Your Word, through the inspiration of others and through Your Truth in music that is so freely available to us. Help us to be strong in Your power and might. Amen
