  • Ephesians 6:10

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.

Sometimes life will come with things that come against God’s plan for us. But don’t be afraid, because if you listen to His word, you can stand in the face of anything with the strength that God gave you.

So don’t act surprised when trials and temptations will come to you. You should always stand still like a rock and keep being strong in your belief in God Almighty. Because remember, His strength is what will carry you, not your own.

Ephesians 6:11-20 lists the armor of God that is given to you in Christ. All these gifts we have received are God’s blessings to you, only if you believe in Jesus Christ and in the sacrifice He has done for you on the cross. So, stand strong, lean on God and on what Jesus has done for you, not only in your own strength.

  • Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

There is absolutely nothing that God has called you to do that He won’t equip you to finish. God is the one who strengthens you and stays near you when you have to face any challenge.

If you have any assignment from God in life, whether it’s related to your family, job, or ministry, He will give you the necessary strength for you to fulfill and learn what you have to learn. So, memorize this verse and thank God for its truth.

Say it out loud when you’re in need or when you feel like you can’t take it anymore. You are able to do everything through God’s strength that guides you along the path.

  • Corinthians 12:9

But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

God’s grace is more than enough for you to help you through whatever you face in life. Through God’s Grace, you will find the power to arrive where He wants you to be. The way God is there for you is to show His power when you are weak.

Paul had asked God three times to take away this “thorn in the flesh”, but God didn’t answer Paul’s prayer the way he expected. God responded to Paul that whatever he might be facing and whatever he thinks would be the solution for any problems, God is releasing His favor and power towards him. God’s grace is more than enough to carry him through any challenges he might go through in life.

The weaker you might feel, the greater God will display His power through you. Learn to always believe and put your trust in Him.

  • Isaiah 40:29-31

He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted, but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. 

God is the only one who gives power to those who are tired and weary. No one can escape this burdening sensation of weariness, not even the younger ones. If you feel like you’re at the “end of your rope”, rest for a while in the arms of God. Wait on the Lord to guide you.

To wait on God means to rest in Him. Stop trying to fix everything all by yourself. You can’t do it. Look up to God as you meditate on His Word over and over again. Just as the waiter is waiting for new guests to serve, ask God what is on His heart for you. That’s where your strength will be.

  • Colossians 1:9-15

And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy; giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. 

This prayer helps you to ask God to strengthen you with all His power. God’s might is glorious. He created our world and all the creatures in it and He holds it all together. When you lean on God instead of your own strength, you’ll learn endurance, patience, and joy that only God can give you.
