1999-05-26 - Verses on God's Strength
Sometimes we feel we are at "the end of our rope." But you know what? That's okay. Sometimes that is exactly where we need to be; that way, we "have to" depend on God instead of ourselves. And His strength is more than ample.
Strength as a Part of God's Character
Job 12:13 (NRSV) With God are wisdom and strength; he has counsel and understanding.
Contrast of Our Strength to God's
Psa 73:26 (NRSV) My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
How God Helps Us with His Strength
2 Cor 12:9 (NRSV) but he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness." So, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.
