WE ARE STRONG IN THE LORD




When we are chronically ill, we can feel that we are rendered useless in the Kingdom of God. Often when the troubles of this life overtake us, we feel that we are defenceless and helpless against the tidal wave that swamps us... Coupled with coping with our illness, we can feel like we are drowning and that all our dreams, hopes and plans are coming to nought.  But nothing could be further from the truth for the believer...even the chronically ill or disabled Christian...

We are strong in the LORD

because..

We have inherited strength from our God.

God gives power to the weak. And to those who have no might, He increases strength. Isaiah 40:29

We have power to run in the Spirit Who strengthens our body and our mind..

that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, Ephesians 3:16

I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.  And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. Ephesians 3: 16-18

Our bodies may be feeble, but our spirits aren't...

Christ has made me a king and priest to God. God will give strength to his king and exalt the horn of his anointed. 1 Samuel 2:10

We can run the race with confidence, because in God's Kingdom the first is last...

And He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, "If anyone desires to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all." Mark 9:35

We can serve God as faithfully as the able bodied Christian...

I am strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Ephesians 6:10

yes...

We are strong in the LORD..
