There are many times in life where we need to draw upon the strength of the Lord. I've taken several phrases from a booklet by my Pastor Billy Joe Daugherty and put them here so that you can draw strength from them. You can be strong in the Lord. In fact, to "be strong in the Lord" is a command. It's not a suggestion, an invitation, or an option.
You can be strong academically, physically, financially, politically and yet be weak in the Lord. In Ephesians 6, Paul is talking about spiritual strength -- the strength that the Lord imparts. He isn't talking about our wisdom or physical might. It is those who know the Lord who will win battles in this hour. We are to be strong in the power and in the might of the Lord."
Here are several scriptures for you to learn and meditate upon to gain strength in the Lord.
