Why do we need strength from the Lord?
Is trusting in the Lord for strength just a crutch for weak people?
How does the Lord give us strength anyhow?
Am I strengthened even though I feel weak?
Does the Lord strengthen us physically or only spiritually?
Wednesday Evenings at 7PM
Join us for our new series on Sundays as we discuss the Biblical concept of strength from the Lord.
Here are some verses to prompt your thinking and encourage you as you begin to meditate on this:
Isaiah 40:31 - 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.
Philippians 4:13 - I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Philippians 4:6-7 - Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. (Read More...)
Psalms 18:32-34 - [It is] God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect. (Read More...)
Philippians 2:13 - For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of [his] good pleasure.
Hebrews 4:15 - For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin.
1 Chronicles 22:13 - Then shalt thou prosper, if thou takest heed to fulfil the statutes and judgments which the LORD charged Moses with concerning Israel: be strong, and of good courage; dread not, nor be dismayed.
