Hello Beloved! As we learn how to stand firm in our faith the Apostle Paul tells believers to do two things. First, we are to strengthen ourselves in the Lord, and second, we are to put on the whole armor of God. Many times we hear about putting on the armor of God and not as much about strengthening ourselves in the Lord. Since both are equally important, today we're going to discuss what it means to strengthen ourselves in the Lord and how to do it by looking at an example from David in the Bible. Enjoy!Next week we'll discuss how our words impact how to stand firm in Christ. Talk to you then! Love, Christina
Reading: 1 Samuel Chapter 30 READ: Why is David greatly distressed when he returns to his camp? REFLECT: What did strengthening himself in the Lord allow David to do? RESPOND: What specific things can you do this week to strengthen yourself in the Lord? REQUEST: Ask the Lord to grant you His strength as you rely more on Him and less on yourself. *Learn more about our 4 “R”s Bible Study Method here.
