When You Need Strength
There is so much going on in the world around us today.
People wonder how much more they can possibly take.
2 Timothy 3:1 says: “But understand this: In the last days. dangerous and perilous times will come.
(Times of great trouble and stress). Difficult days that will be hard to bear.”
We are seeing this play out before our very eyes.
If you need strength today, I have some very good news:
The Lord is Your Strength!
He is the Source of all Strength and all Power.
I want to encourage you today.
No matter how weak you may feel, how exhausted, discouraged, overwhelmed or weary,
no matter how difficult the test, trial, temptation, or problem, the grief, the sorrow, the loss,
The Lord God promises that His enabling strength, His very power,
is more than sufficient for anything we will ever go through in this life.
He is the “way-maker”.
“Now unto Him who is able to do
immeasurably, exceedingly, more than all we can ask, think, or imagine,
according to the power that works in us (the Holy Spirit)” Ephesians 3:20
My Sister, I'm here to tell you that God is able!
His strength, His power, His grace will not only match your need, but far exceed it,
and He gives us much more than anything we can ask Him for, or even imagine!
God’s strength and His power are matchless, incomparable, limitless, infinite, unable to be measured.
Nothing can compare or even come close.
Consider these passages of scripture about the Lord’s incomparable strength:
Great is the Lord, and mighty in power. Psalm 147:5
God is exalted in His power. Job 36:22
His power is vast! Job 9:4
His incomparably great power...Ephesians 1:9
In Your hands are power and strength. 1 Chronicles 29:12
Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty. Psalm 24:8
God has spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongs to God. Psalm 62:11
Be exalted (honored) O Lord In Your Strength. Psalm 21:13
The Lord Freely Gives His Strength to His People.
The Lord wants us to run to Him, accept His strength, not try to live in our own limited strength.
He will supply fresh strength for each day.
His mercies are new each and every morning.
We are to “be strong in the Lord (not ourselves) and the power of His might.” Ephesians 6:10
God exalts His Word above His very name, and He is watching over His Word to perform it.
So it’s very important to know what God’s Word, (the Bible) has to say to us.
To claim His promises of strength (or any other promised blessing) we need to know what they are.
That comes from spending dedicated time reading, learning and growing in the Word of God.
God’s Word revives us. It strengthens us. It upholds us (holds us up!)
So please continue to make reading your bible a top priority.
When you need strength – go straight to the Word of God.
He is No Respecter of Persons! His strength is for "whosever will" (wants it).
Here is a buffet of strength scriptures for your spiritual nourishment:
My soul melts from heaviness, strengthen me according to your Word. Psalms 119:28

His grace is sufficient for your need. His power is perfected (manifested) when we are weak.
For when I am weak, I am made strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
