Strength, as it is defined, applies to numerous areas; physically, spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually.
Through the aging process we are all aware of the decline of physical strength. There are times when a decline in emotional and intellectual strength also occurs.
The most frightening area regarding a decline in strength is seen in the spiritual realm.
Perhaps we have all seen or experienced personally the struggles of remaining strong and faithful on a spiritual basis.
During these times a strong leadership is needed to provide support and encouragement to help lead someone out of their struggles.
Paul encourages Christians to “be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God” (Eph. 6:10-11).
Examining each of the pieces of armor reveals the closeness of each area to all that is found in God’s word. Our strength comes from what God provides us through His word.
The reason for this incredible tool is to help us find the strength we need to help others in leading them out of sin into the marvelous light of our God.
