When You Need God’s Strength
Who doesn’t need God’s strength? If you’re feeling weak and in need of a divine touch, here’s something for you to remember:
When You Need God’s Strength
Rebecca Barlow Jordan
Tired of carrying burdens God never intended?
Weary from the effort to keep your heart mended?
The One who loves you most is the one who loves you best.
He promises His strength and offers you His rest.
Too weak to make the effort? Stretch out your hand and see
if the God who formed the world and created you and me,
Who shut the mouths of lions, and Who calmed the raging seas;
Who healed the sick and raised the dead, Who gave us all His peace,
is big enough, is strong enough; His grace is all you need–
and His faithfulness surrounds you as you truly let Him lead.
Lift your head and eyes toward Him; go in the strength you have,
ignoring those who say you can’t, who shake their heads and laugh.
The God who loves you as His child will never, ever, fail.
In light of Him, the Great I am, all others surely pale.
His strength is there; and everywhere you go He’s there to guide you.
His power hides your weakness; He’a always there beside you.
So when you’re feeling weak, just ask; His promises are true.
When He calls you to a task, God will always see you through.
Promises for God’s Strength
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak (Isaiah 40:29, NIV).
The Lord is my strength and my shield (Psalm 28:7, NIV).
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever (Psalm 73:26, NIV).
Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me (2 Corinthians 12:9, NLT).
