God Wants You Strong In Him

From Beth Moore's Blog posted July 29:

“God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we’ll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels. Be prepared. You’re up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it’s all over but the shouting you’ll still be on your feet.” Ephesians 6:10-13 (The Message)

I need to remember that God wants me to be strong in Him and in His might. Anxiety may cause me to believe that God does not want my mind strong, but that is not true. So when I'm tempted to believe that thought, I can remember Eph. 6:10-13,pray it and thank God He means what He says in His Word. It may be a lifelong battle for me, but taking all the help I can get, every weapon God has given, I'll still be on my feet of faith when I see Him face to face! Hallelujah!  Thank you, Jesus!
