‘Be Strong in the Lord’

I don’t know anything about this praise and worship song, other than it was written by Linda Lee Johnson in 1979 and a lot of people seem to like it. Also, it echoes one of my favorite passages of Scripture, Ephesians 6:10-17–which begins:

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

  1. Thank you, Lee, and thanks to whoever requested this. I’ve never heard this one, but it’s very true. Be strong in The Lord!

  2. I had never heard this one either, but it also reminded me of the words following most of the books of the Torah, which are written in the Hebrew language followed by the English: Be strong, be strong and let us be strengthened. Great words to remember.
