'BE STRONG': People in my community.

"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might" - Ephesians 6:10
.
There are situations in life that would make people weak in life but only the strong can forge through.
.
It takes the strong to fight the battles of life and even the good fight of faith. It is one thing to be strong and it's yet another thing to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
.
To be strong in the Lord means to be bold and courageous in the Lord in spite of opposing forces and being strong in the power of His might talks about inner strength.
.
Where is your confidence in God? Being strong in the Lord means to put your unflinching trust in the Lord. David was stronger in the Lord than king Saul this was why he was able to conquer Goliath without having an experience of warfare (1 Sam. 17).
.
Where your confidence is determines how strong you'll be in fighting the battles of life (Ps. 20:6-7).
.
When a man isn't strong in the Lord, he will be so light and easily tossed to and fro by the circumstances of life.
.
How can you be strong in the Lord? Wait upon Him daily in prayer and bible study. We are in the generation where youths will utterly fail but only those that wait upon Him shall be renewed in their strength.
.
To be strong in the Lord, have an absolute faith in Him. The three Hebrew boys kept their trust in God and He didn't disappoint them. Being strong in the Lord is not a function of physical strength or religious activities, it's an inner strength that is obtained in the place of personal and consistent communion in the Lord.
.
Are you getting overwhelmed by the challenges of life? Does it seem as if God is too slow to do that which He told you? Don't look at the boisterous wind of your circumstances but look sternly at Him that is able to deliver those who trust in Him.
.
My brothers and sisters, be strong in the Lord.
