God Is Your Strength

Philippians 4:13

I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].

It is through our reliance on Jesus that we have the strength for all things because we are self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency. Don’t try to be strong, rely on His strength. When we are weak, then we are strong. We are weak when we are not trying to be strong in ourselves but draw upon His strength within us, looking to Him and not to ourselves.

Believers often say they are trying to be strong but the Bible does not teach us to find strength in ourselves. All who trust in the Lord shall renew their strength and they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not grow weary, they shall walk and shall not faint. When we choose to put our full trust in God, He becomes our strength. We are no longer relying on us but on Him.

As scripture teaches we need to trust in Him with all our heart by acknowledging Him in all our ways and He will direct our steps, bringing great strength to our lives. Take Him at His Word, acting upon what He has said for He cannot lie, therefore act as if the Word is true because it is. Refuse to go your own way. Believe the Word of God and His strength will put you over, for all things are possible to them that believe. Just believe.
