The Lord says that the one whose strength is in Him is blessed. The only way to be truly strong is to be strong in the Lord. You will be blessed if your strength is not in yourself but in the Lord.
Psalm 84:5 How blessed is the man whose strength is in You,
In whose heart are the highways to Zion!
It is His command that we be strong in the Lord and that it should be in the strength of His might.
Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.
He must be our strength and the sooner that we realize it the more we will quit trying to be strong in ourselves.
Psalm 18:1 “I love You, O Lord, my strength.”
It is in our weakness that His power is perfected. He is glorified in our weakness.
II Corinthians 12:9 And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.
The Bible says woe to those who put their strength in anything other than the Lord.
Isaiah 31:1 Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help And rely on horses, And trust in chariots because they are many And in horsemen because they are very strong, But they do not look to the Holy One of Israel, nor seek the Lord!
How do we become strong in the Lord. It is when we acknowledge our weakness to Him. A prayer that you can pray says, “Lord, I can’t, You never said I could, You can and You always said You would.” The Lord wants to help you. He is a very present help and is waiting for you to ask Him for help. Humility is acknowledging that you can not do it. His grace is available to all who call on Him. Ask Him today to help you do what He wants you to do.
Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
