Our Source of Strength

"God will strengthen you with his own great power so that you will not give up when troubles come, but you will be patient." Colossians 1:11 (NCV)

Have you ever felt like all your strength was gone? You have exerted so much energy physically, mentally or emotionally that there is nothing left. If you have ever been at that point, believe me you are not alone. We all have moments that we feel drained and there is no more strength within us. In these times of weakness, we have a very present help and a hope that is beyond this world and ourselves.

God has promised in his word that HE would be the very source of our strength. Think about this for a moment.....when we have exspended all that we are, he becomes our strength to continue on. Throughout the bible, God imparted his strength to countless people that were in situations that were beyond them. In the lives of Joshua, David, Paul and Jesus, God shows his everlasting strength by becoming their reliable pillar of strength. The words of God to Paul were, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in our weakness" (2 Cor. 12:9). If you have been relying on yourself or others for strength, trust in God for all that you need. He promised to become our source if we will rely on him. There is no one greater to handle the weakness in our lives than the one that holds the key to our victory. You are not alone in weakness; for God will supply all that you need. Be encouraged and hold on.

Prayer: Father, thank you for being my strong tower. I place my trust in you because you promised through your Word to be the source of my strength. Grant me the ability to trust you for all things and believe that you will keep your word as I diligently depend on you. Amen
