He is my strength

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Ephesians 6:10

A body fails for lack of strength, but the human spirit is sustained by strength in God. Beloved, God our Savior takes us from strength to strength. His strength gives spiritual discernment to dismiss temporal taunts of discouragement and provides us with insight to embrace eternal encouragement. Yes, the world offers weakness. Guilt and shame from sinful activity is exhausting, but prayer and perseverance in righteousness are rejuvenating to the soul and spirit. God’s strength gives focus to walk in wise ways, and become more than a conqueror.

Have the wiles of the devil worn you down? Has uncertainty rattled your faith? If so, lean on the Lord and tap into His everlasting strength. Faith in Him will get you through another day and He will arm you with courage to face future temptations. Jesus gives you enough strength for today and you can still trust Him with the cares of tomorrow. Hope in the Lord will renew your strength. Like an IV tube channels liquid nutrients to the body, so hope gives stamina to the soul.

Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31

Those in power succeed well when they depend on Divine power for their success. His mighty power gives us wisdom to know the best decisions to make. His mighty power delivers us from disease and gives us determination to overcome injustice. His mighty power empowers us with inner energy to toil on when we are tired and say no to sin when we are tempted. Indeed, God’s tower of power suffers no outages, it’s live 100% of the time! He gives us power to share Jesus.
