Jon and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch yesterday with my awesome brother Brett and his beautiful wife Debbie. Jon and I love these two.
When I think of my brother Brett I think of "strong... diligent... solid..." (BTW he is an awesome pastor in Portland Oregon: check it out at atheycreek.com).
Often times we can look at people like my brother and think "We could never be that solid or strong or diligent ..." But the truth is this, God's commandments are our enablements...
In Ephesians we are commanded to "....Be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might." ... I love that our commandment is to get strong from the power of HIS might. That means we don't need to be naturally strong.
So even if we are not naturally strong like my brother, who even he would say he gets his strength 100% from God too... We can know no matter who we are, we get to rely and gain power from HIM!
So let's look to the strong for strength today. It'll make ALL the difference.
Always always there is glorious and good news for each and every one of us in God's Word!
