Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.

Strength to overcome the temptations and influences of the devil does not come through our will power. It comes by relying on the strength of God.

Satan will use anything to tempt us to disobey God. He’ll use situations that happen in our family to tempt us to gossip. He’ll use the negative attitude of our spouse to tempt us to start an argument. He’ll even tempt us with that delicious cookie knowing we’re full.

Being strong in the Lord means relying on the power in His Word. If God said it, we can overcome. We can resist, renew our minds, and rely on God to give us a plan to overcome. Don’t try to do it yourself. Be strong in the Lord.
