Strength

Jesus is our source of strength, and wants us to turn to Him to have our strength renewed. Turn here to read about what He has done to strengthen His people!

Keep Your Umbrella Open

We all have umbrellas, which are coverings designed for us to walk under them so that when it rains, it won’t rain on us. Grace is not only something that happens when you are converted, but it is also a lifestyle you are to operate under. You are not only saved by grace, but you are also to maneuver under the covering that God provides: the magnificent grace of God.

God the Giver of Strength

The story of God’s people is one of God’s strength covering our weakness. Our heavenly Father takes our problems, sins, fears, and feebleness and uses them as opportunities to demonstrate the overwhelming power of his love. He takes those the world deems to be the weakest and uses them to accomplish incredible, powerful works.

Compassion for a Traveler

One of the most familiar and well-loved stories in the Bible is that of the good Samaritan. However, we must ask ourselves whether we leave it in the past, thinking of it as merely a good story, or look at it from a modern-day perspective. We certainly live in days when the spirit of the Good Samaritan is needed, and the place it should be displayed is in the lives of Christians.

The Undeniable Mark of a Champion

Becoming a winner entails the strength to stay at a task even when you feel like giving up. It is the willpower to keep on keeping on when you would rather resign. Call it whatever you would like - determination, endurance, persistence, tenacity - whatever, it is an undeniable mark of a champion.

The Lord Will Fight for You

Do you ever panic when your situation looks bleak, thinking God has forgotten you? It’s human nature, I’m sure, to fear the worst when the odds are against us. But I believe God wants to do so much more for us when we trust Him during times of uncertainty.

What does it mean to have faith?

Whether this is your first or four-thousandth day as a Christian, or you aren’t sure you really want to be a Christian yet, you’ve probably heard of this thing Christians call “faith.” What you might not be sure of is why it’s such a big deal.

Are You a Worrier or a Warrior?

Are you a worrier or a warrior? A worrier is one who tries to fight their own battles of fear, insecurity, and doubt. A warrior lets God fight those battles through them.

Finding God’s Strength in Your Weakness

Choosing to do our primary work in the smaller, less noticeable spheres and devote our best gifts there is often a foreign thought to us. We usually want to jump from the center directly to the perimeter of impact, skipping over the areas most closely connected to us.

From where does my help come?

When facing persecution, if possible, seek help from those around you. In the book of Esther, we read that Esther did not use her...

God Does Not Need You to be Strong

God does not want us to be strong. God wants to be our strength.

Perhaps a better way to say it is this: God wants us to be really strong, which is different from the way we might typically desire to be strong. We often want to be strong in a way that reflects well on us. God wants us to be strong in a way that reflects well on him. In a fallen world, these two wants are often at odds.
