Be Strong in the Lord

English and Español

Prepare for Battle

“Having put on the breastplate of righteousness and having shod your feet with the preparation of the Gospel of peace, and in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Ephesians 6:14–17).

 

All soldiers dress for combat, and believers clothe themselves in divine armor that covers them from head to toe, front and back. Christians focus hard on their Commander-in-Chief, Jesus Christ. We stand and when exhausted, we continue to stand with Jesus. The devil directs his arrows at our hearts, peace, faith, and minds. Our Lord protects his own! “How great is the love that God has lavished on us that we should be called children of God” (1 John 3:1). Yes, how great this is! With one voice, we proclaim that we believe in God who “rescued us from the dominion of darkness, and brought us into the kingdom of His beloved Son” (Colossians 1:13). We pray: Lord Jesus, strengthen us, your warriors. Inspire us to wield the Word of God. We know the devil is impotent against your power and might. Thank you, Jesus! You have set us free from his bondage, and we boldly proclaim your name. Amen

 

Prepáranse para la batalla

Manténganse firmes, ceñidos con el cinturón de la verdad, protegidos por la coraza de justicia, y calzados con la disposición de proclamar el evangelio de la paz. Además de todo esto, tomen el escudo de la fe, con el cual pueden apagar todas las flechas encendidas del maligno. Tomen el casco de la salvación y la espada del Espíritu, que es la palabra de Dios” (Efesios 6:14-17).

 

Todos los soldados se visten para el combate, y los creyentes se visten con armadura divina que las cubre de la cabeza a los pies, de frente y de atrás. Los cristianos se fijan en su Comandante en Jefe, Jesús Cristo. Nos ponemos de pie y, cuando estemos exhaustos, seguimos de pie con Jesús. El diablo apunta sus flechas a nuestros corazones y mentes y a nuestra paz y fe. ¡Nuestro Señor protege lo suyo! “¡Fíjense qué gran amor nos ha dado el Padre, que se nos llame hijos de Dios!” (1 Juan 3:1). ¡Si, qué gran es ése amor! Con una voz, proclamamos que creemos en Dios, que “nos libró del dominio de la oscuridad y nos trasladó al reino de su amado Hijo” (Colosenses 1:13). Oramos: Señor Jesús, fortalécenos, tus guerrilleros. Inspíranos a blandir la Palabra de Dios. Sabemos que el diablo es impotente contra tu fuerza y poder. ¡Gracias Jesús! Nos has librado de la esclavitud del diablo, y abiertamente proclamamos tu nombre. Amen

But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

(Isaiah 40: 31)
