Devotional: True Strength

Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”

There was a time when I thought that true strength and courage came from having a strong will power, but true courage and strength comes from the presence of the Lord and knowing that He has your back. The truth is that God has already gone before the situation that stands in front of you today. When the children of Israel were being lead out of Egypt, the Egyptians had more power and might than the Israelites but the Israelites had the Lord that went with them and before them. It is just like a prison guard that has no physical power but has the authority given by the state. That is all that matters.  You may not be strong in many areas of your life but if you have the presence of the Lord, then you can be strong! It is not by force or by strength, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies. (Zechariah 4:6 NLT) Be strong and courageous because there is an army in Heaven that has your back today!
