I have been told a few times that God would give me strength. I have been told a few times that I wouldn’t have to fend for myself because God would give me the strength I need to face anything. I have been told a few times that the strength God gives will allow me to rise above anything. Then I was once told that God was my strength and that declaration was a game changer. The Lord gives me strength but He is the strength Himself. God will give Himself to help me and to defend me. He is not just supplying what I need, He is the supply Himself. God will always be my strength now that I know that it is what He does. I want to encourage you today and remind you that the Lord is your strength. God Almighty, the creator of the universe is your strength. He is the power behind your next success. He is the power behind your next breakthrough. He is the power behind the faith that you have. All you need is God. When He is all you have, He is more than enough.
I went through a difficult time recently and at the start of that rough season, the Holy Spirit reminded me that God was my strength. He reminded me that I was backed up by more power than I actually needed. He underlined the fact that God was more than sufficient and because He is more than we need, there is always an overflow with Him. There is an overflow of goodness, of peace, of love, of joy, of blessings. There is always an overflow of miracle power when we have the Lord as our Savior. It doesn’t matter what comes our way, the Lord will get in the way of what’s in the way. He makes a way where there is a dead end. He showers the desert of bad luck with blessings from Heaven. He fills our cup and it overflows. He gives us more than enough and more than we can expect. He is the strength that is invincible and that never stops. Friend, you have an unlimited supply of strength to face anything because your God is more than enough and He is the ultimate strength.
What is it like to have more strength than we need? It is comforting and it gives us boldness. It warms us up and it gives us the joy and the peace that we need in all circumstances. Tell yourself every morning that God is your strength. Meditate on that truth. Meditate on the truth that the strength that is available to you is an ability to do all things and to make it through any situation. When I was sick, I held on to the strength that stays with me all day. God, my strength, stood by me and filled me with joy in the middle of that stormy event. I got up and I rejoiced. I got up and I praised the Lord. I got up and I thanked my strength for not giving up on me and for not abandoning me. Friend, you have all the strength you need and more so don’t be afraid. You are going to make it and you are going to succeed. God is your strength when you are weak. You have nothing to worry about. Stay in the Lord. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
