Bible verses on strength from God will help you when it seems like hindrances abound. Declare promises of strength from the Bible today and move forward in God! From the 40 Days of Daily Bread Series.
Some days are just hard. Life hands you trials and your resilience seems to start drying up. On the other hand…
You may have recently decided to guard against a specific temptation, increase your time with God, or obey Him in a certain area. Whenever you have made a fresh decision to go forward in God in a focused area, the devil likes to utilize all means of hindering your goal. (Don’t forget you have power over him. Luke 10:19)
Most of the time your battle is simply dying to self, but your efforts may involve a stronghold in your life. A stronghold is anything that has a strong hold on you. You need the opposite greater power of the Word in that specific area in order to overcome. (ie. Bind laziness/slothfulness and loose diligence; put off anger and put on self-control).
Whatever your specific need may be, arm yourself with these Bible verses for strength, promises straight from the heart of God.
