“Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power.” Colossians 1:11

O my soul, what encouraging words are these! How full of meaning! The Lord our Righteousness is the Lord our Strength. He is near at hand, believer, to strengthen you according to your need. Not in one or two respects does He strengthen, but “with all might,” with a supply suited to every occasion. And that to the utmost, answerable to what may be expected from the exertion of “His own glorious power.”

Happy state of the believer in Jesus!

Though feeble in himself, surrounded with enemies, and exercised with continual warfare, a believer shall not be overpowered because the promise and the arm of God are on his side. The Lord, who can do what He pleases, is in an alliance, yes in a covenant, with a believer. Therefore,  a believer is made more than a conqueror through Christ who has loved him.

Observe, my soul, this is part of Paul’s prayer for the Colossians. You need the blessing as much as they did. Therefore, adopt it as your own. And often today, and every day, lift up your heart to God and beseech Him to strengthen you with all might according to His glorious power, unto all patience and long-suffering, with joyfulness.
