How often have we prayed for more strength? Life can be challenging at times, affecting our physical, emotional, and spiritual strength. But there is good news. When we belong to God, He has promised to be our strength. Exodus 15:2 tells us, “The Lord is my strength and my song, and He has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise Him.” In Job 4:3, Job declares, “Behold, You have instructed many, and you have strengthened the weak hands.”
As we walk with God and seek Him daily, His presence can rejuvenate us and cause even our physical bodies to become stronger. Isaiah 40:31 says, “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.” This is His promise to us. It is vital that we spend time in the presence of God. We can seek His wisdom and strategies for our lives, and in that exchange, He will blow a wind of refreshing upon us, giving us new strength for the journey.
When we go through a difficult season, He will become our strength. Psalm 28:7-8 says, “The Lord is my strength and shield; in Him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to Him. The Lord is the strength of his people; he is the saving refuge of his anointed.” God truly becomes our strength when we feel like we can no longer go on. As we come out of these difficult times, He will restore us. 1 Peter 5:10 promises, “And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.” There is hope in Christ. No matter what season of life we are in, we must keep our eyes fixed on our Lord Jesus Christ. He is our steadfast Lord. He is our strength and He is our promises fulfilled.
