Staying in Him

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
- Psalm 27:1 (NKJV)

The Lord indeed is the strength of our lives. It is in Him that we live and move and have our being (true existence). He is the pillar that holds our lives and that is why without Him we cannot really live.

If we are going to be strong and get stronger, we must stay in Him because in Him is our strength. We do this by allowing God’s Word to abide in us and we must abide in His Word. As we stay in the Word through meditation and obedience to it, we will draw strength from it. And as we stay in it and abide in it, we will get stronger in Him.

Hearing the Word of God builds faith, and faith grants us access to strength in Him. Through the Word, we have fellowship with the Lord. And as we fellowship, there is an impartation of whatever we need, which includes strength, life, light (illumination), joy and much more.

Do you feel weak or discouraged or confused? Get into the Word. Meditate on it and do what it says. You will be refreshed and strengthened. It is only by staying in Him that we can make progress and be fruitful. In this life, lots of situations, circumstances and even people will rise up to make us weak, but as we stay in Him by staying in His Word, we will have the strength to brace up for whatever comes our way.

Beloved, remember, whatever you need to do and win, you need to do it God’s way; you will require His strength to take you to the finish line. So, stay in Him!

Prayer & Confession of Faith: Thank You, Father, for being the strength of my life. As I stay in fellowship with You, my strength will keep being renewed and I will keep getting stronger and stronger. I receive the grace to abide in Your Word and allow it to build my faith. Amen!
