Every believer in Jesus Christ has been commissioned by God. It takes great courage to defy the world’s system and follow Christ whole heartedly. The believer must be prepared to wear a fool’s coat, even when everyone else is wearing designers. In other words, be prepared to be a non-conformist. The believer stands strong by clothing his or herself with the garment of TRUTH. To be made fun of because of your non-conformity is a great place to be: according to Jesus Christ (Matthew 5:11).
Be strong in Lord:
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refused to dance to the tune of Nebuchadnezzar’s pipe (Daniel 3:15). By way of explanation, they refused to worship the “image” of man. They were resolute in their faith and refused to worship anyone or any other god but Yahweh. They stood their ground, even in the face of fire. The same charge was brought against Daniel. He refused to bow his knee to the “image” of man. Daniel kept his faith in view of the Lions jaws.
It is a great honour to the believer, when the report of this world is that you do not conform to the traditions of men. The worship of idols is an old ancient tradition which has prevailed on this earth through the centuries. It even manifests itself in the Church.
Be strong in His mighty power:
Brothers and sisters in Christ. These are the last days. Stand, with God’s mighty power against the powers of darkness. Until Christ returns there will be many battles to fight. As a Christian soldier you must be bold and brave. Remember that the fight is not against physical human beings, but against powers, principalities and spiritual wickedness in high places. You need spiritual strength and endurance for spiritual warfare. This power only comes from God. While an earthly General is only as strong as his troops, the believers strength comes from the Lord of Hosts. The believer overcomes the enemy by the power, might and authority of God’s Word. The right hand of the Lord is exalted, the right hand of the Lord is valiant (Psalm 118:16). The right hand of the Lord is a symbol of God’s mighty power. It is this power that He uses to overthrow all power of the enemy.
Jesus Christ came to this earth in such meekness and lowliness. He suffered, He was despised and rejected by men, yet He prevailed and overcame. He stood His ground. By the power in His blood, the believer has overcome!
Let the weak say they are strong, the Lord has prevailed. Rejoice and again I say, Rejoice! satan is defeated!
