My Strength

“The Lord is my Strength and my [impenetrable] Shield; my heart trusts in, relies on, and confidently leans on Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song will I praise Him.” Ps 28:7

The fact that God is my Strength is more meaningful than I  fully comprehended at first. If you look at the word ‘strength’, it’s meaning includes the following:

  1. Energy
  2. Courage
  3. Health
  4. Power
  5. Security
  6. Stability
  7. Anchor
  8. Ability
  9. Influence
  10. Value

This is incredible. The fact that God is our strength means He IS our energy when we feel weak and tired. He IS our courage when we feel cowardly or faint-hearted. He IS our health when we are sick. He IS our power when we are incapable as humans. He IS our security when we are in danger or threatened. He IS our stability when we lose our balance in life and become unsteady. He IS our anchor when we feel disconnected from life. He IS our ability when we lack the skill or talent to accomplish a task. He IS our influence when we lack motivation or zest in life. He IS our value at all times – through His death on the cross we understand what we mean to Him.

Rejoice in the Lord, who is your STRENGTH!
