Stronger And More Glorious – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional September 9th

(Increase In Strength And Glory)

TO THE BIBLE: Acts 9:22
“…Saul increased all the more in strength, and confounded the Jews who dwelt in Damascus, proving that this Jesus is the Christ.”

Years ago, while I was having a lot of opposition, I set my face like a flint and focused on something God had told me. He said, “Be courageous; I will not fail you, and I will not forsake you.”

It was an instruction from God. Therefore, it made no difference who was against me or what was happening around me; I couldn’t be bothered. There wasn’t going to be any fear. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, I was endued with courage, and I’ve been ever since.

When God tells you to be courageous, it’s because He knows there’s trouble out there. He knows some things will try to frighten you, discourage you, and dissuade you, so He says, “Be courageous.”

I made up my mind that I was going to do what God said; I was going to be very courageous.

Our opening verse says, “…Saul increased all the more in strength….” To increase in strength means that the Lord enabled him.

The Greek actually expresses it as “to be made strong.” He was increased in strength; this is an inner strength. He was empowered from within to be able to accomplish more. This is what the Lord does for His children: He strengthens you from within.

As you increase in strength, you increase in glory. This is what has happened with the Gospel of Jesus Christ in these last days: it has increased in strength and in glory.

We’re in a special time in the world today, with Rhapsody of Realities reaching billions of people in their native language. Millions of ministries are partnering with us for the common goal of taking the Gospel to the ends of the earth!

These aren’t the kinds of things anyone could have planned. They’re happening by the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.

That grace is at work in you today to accomplish more than you’ve ever done for the Lord. You won’t be afraid; you won’t falter. You’ll rise to the occasion and win because you’re empowered from within. Hallelujah!
