“Be strong, O Joshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you people of the land,” declares the Lord Almighty.” Haggai 2:4.
God encourages us to be strong. This encouragement is for protection from a ‘murmuring heart’ that could lead to ‘heart failure’. Symptoms of a murmuring heart are: constant complaining, negating, fearing, and rehearsing of negatives. Our confession and communication shows the state of our heart. A challenge is a condition and negative confession can determine the outcome. A murmuring heart can lead to ‘heart failure’ with diminished faith and the struggle to survive.
Jesus encourages us: “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.” John 14:1. He has given us power to control our hearts by our imagination and confession. Bad thoughts become a confession that can kill your dreams. Negative confessions create negative results. “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverb 18:21.
Create and rule your world by what you think, meditate on, say, and do. Be strong in your circumstances and rule your mediation, confession, and actions. The LORD Almighty is with you. Let the weak say, “I am strong!” You are God’s champion through whom He is creating another testimony that “Our God is Greater”.
I am strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.
