Trials, grief and everyday challenges require us to be strong. The best way to find strength is through prayer and reading the Bible. Relying on the Lord and not on ourselves is an essential way to find strength in both good and bad times. The following Bible quotes on strength are encouraging and uplifting. Being strong in the Lord simply requires faith.
Psalm 18:32-34 (NIV)
It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he enables me to stand on the heights. He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
God gives us strength to face the “battles” in our lives. Surely we will face challenges but we will not be alone. God is always there by our side.
Ephesians 6:10 (NIV)
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
In order to take a stand against the devils and his evil forces, we must have a strong relationship with God. Satan and his fallen angels are very real and attack us everyday. It is nice that God gives us “full armor,” to go to battle against the devil.
Phillipians 4:13 (NKJV)
I can do all things through Christ who strengths me.
This is one of my favorite Bible verses. It shows that our faith in the Lord gives us incredible strength. Paul was a great example of relying on God for strength and contentment.
Psalms 46:1 (NIV)
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
In times of trouble, look to God. Even in complete destruction and the end of the world, God will still be there, for eternity.
Isaiah 40:29 (NIV)
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
As people, we have limits to our strength. However, God has no limits. We can derive our strength through his strength just by calling on him to help us.
Spend some time reflecting on these Bible scriptures. Reading the verses in context is best.
