Bible Verses for Strength
So, let’s be honest with ourselves, we could all use some extra strength from time to time.
I’m not talking about the physical kind, but the kind that will help you to build up your resilience; to help you to withstand trails, persecutions and whatever life throws at you, these verses will help to do just that! Because, as you already know, we will and do experience these, no matter who we are, because we are living in this fallen world. Especially in these current and ‘end’ times (with covid and the impact this has had on every area of life, terrorism, famine, climate change). But also in our personal lives too; with many difficulties and challenges we face. Therefore, building up this strength spiritually and emotionally is important but, know this, it can be done!
Well, we can start by asking God.
By meditating on these Bible verses for strength it will also help you to remember them, not only in your mind but in your hearts too. Which, in turn, will help in applying them to your own lives and ultimately strengthening your spirit and emotions as well. This is just one way in which we can become stronger through Him.
How awesome is that?!
