Strength To Endure

Our bodies are made of many different parts, and each of those parts requires something for them to remain strong and healthy.  We must do the necessary exercise and work to keep our mental strength, and there are a variety of different exercises that are done to keep our physical strength.  When we choose to exercise different body parts we do not do the same training for each part because they are all different.  We work our legs out different than we work our arms, and we do cardio not to gain muscle to be keep our hearts and lungs strong.  We also must keep spiritually strong as well, and that will take time studying and praying, but the spiritual strength we acquire is that we get straight from The Lord.  

The Scripture reminds us, that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened, with might by his Spirit in the inner man.  I encourage you today that you would submit yourself to The Lord so He can give you the proper strength.  This strength that you will receive from The Lord is not strength that you or anyone else may be able to see, but strength on the inside to be able to handle the attacks on the outside.  When The Lord gives you strength He is strengthening you for the journey, and because He knows the road ahead he strengthens the parts of you that need the power to endure.  I am grateful that The Lord knows exactly what I need, and He will give me all that I need according to His riches in glory to reach my destiny.  

Since I am being strengthened by The Lord daily in the inner man I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”


Give me the strength Lord to endure the things that may come my way, and give me the inner strength to handle what may come at me from the outside.  In Jesus Name Amen.
