Everyday we are attacked by negative thoughts and especially discouragement. Even at home, family life can even be so stressful that sometimes we might feel like quitting. Work can have so much pressure on deadlines, unfair treatment, back-talk by work mates and sometimes just plain boredom.

That’s when we need to have strength to endure and carry on. Ephesians 6:10 says to “be strong on the Lord and in the power of His might…”. This verse is focused on the armor of God and standing against the devil. We need to be strong in battle.

Then Joshua 1:7 says to “be strong and very courageous…”. Why? To obey the Law of God. We need strength to obey God. Then it is through obedience that we can experience God Success.

There is a way that we can experience joy on a continual basis. The bible in Nehemiah 8:10 says that the “Joy of the Lord is your strength.”
