“I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.”
Philippians 4:13 (NIV)
“I love you, O LORD, my strength.”
Psalms 18:1 (NIV)
Strength is the energy that God gives us to complete a task. It is what helps us endure to the end. Strength is also what helps us resist negative forces. What better place to get strength than from God? He is able to provide all the strength we need to do what He calls us to do. Need to love someone who is unlovely? Ask Him for strength. Need to forgive someone who hurt you deeply? Ask Him for strength. Have to do something that seems impossible? Ask Him for strength. Is fear crippling you, depression strangling you? Ask Him for strength. Paul said, “I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength.” We can experience the same reality that Paul did. And when we do, we will be able to say with David, “I love you, O Lord, my strength!”
Almighty God, I need your strength. I can’t live the life you want me to without it. Help me Father. Give me all the strength I need to do all that you ask me to do this day. I thank you for hearing this prayer. I will step out in faith and go forward in the power and strength of your might.
TODAY’S MEDITATION & VISUALIZATION
God gives me strength for living
Visualize yourself coming to a very difficult task. Sense the stress it brings. Start to feel the apprehension build in your body. Take a deep breath and as you let it out let the awareness of Christ and His strength fill your heart. See Him coming to your aid. Sense the presence of the Holy Spirit. Realize that you are not alone and begin to relax. Let your apprehension be replaced with peace and confidence. God is alive and He will give you strength!
