"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might." ESV
If we don't keep our bodies strong by physical exertion and healthy habits, we will be weak and fail the test of physical strength when it presents itself. Likewise, if we don't stay strong spiritually by prayer, study of His Word, and fellowship with believers, we will fail the test of spiritual faith that we will surely need at any given moment. Worse yet, we will be trampled over, deceived, and eternally defeated. His living power keeps our spirits strong. He tells us to be strong. The responsibility is ours.
Lord Jesus, forgive us for failing to stay strong in our spirits. Help us to be sensitive to those opportunities You provide to us that will strengthen us. Discipline us so that we will be found strong and walking in Your power when You return. In Your name we pray, Amen.
