YOU’RE STRONG AND TOUGH
(Nothing Shakes The One In Christ)
👤 Pastor Chris
📖 TO THE BIBLE
Acts 20:24 “But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.”
◀️ LET’S TALK
It makes no difference the adversities you face; you must stand strong and tough in the Holy Ghost! You should always affirm, like the Apostle Paul, “None of these things move me.” Occasionally, your commitment to Christ and convictions about the Gospel will be tested through persecution, but be of good cheer, because greater is He that’s in you than all your adversaries and persecutors put together. They may come out against you one way, but they’ll flee before you seven ways (Deuteronomy 28:7). Never be bothered about the tests and trials that come your way; the Lord allows them because He knows the stuff you’re made of.
You’re more than a conqueror (Romans 8:37); you always win. You reign and rule in union with Christ, and nothing can put you down. The fiercer the challenges you face, the greater your victories and testimonies. That’s why James, in his letter, instructed, “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds” (James 1:2 NIV). The reason the Lord would ask you to be joyful when all hell seems to be breaking loose is that He knows you’re a victor. No situation that you face has the power to overwhelm you. 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 says, “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed” ; why?
The answer is in the preceding verse 7; “…we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us” (NIV). The power in you to always win, to consistently triumph, make progress, rise like a high-rise structure—towering far above and beyond the adversities and persecutions that come your way, is of God! Remain strong and tough, for you’re born to reign, rule, and win!

Romans 8:36-39; James 1:2-4
I’m born of God; therefore, I’ve overcome the world and its failing systems. Irrespective of raging opposition, I win; I triumph gloriously by the power of the Holy Ghost that’s at work in me mightily. I’m more than a conqueror; convinced of my eternal victory over satan, advancing in life from glory to glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
