What is your Symbol of Strength?
Bible Nugget 0408[Psalm 46 v 1-7 KJV]
1God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
2Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
3Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
4There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
5God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.
6The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.
7The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
The question this hour is what is your symbol of strength? If you symbol of strength is in a person or man, the bible says woe is that person who puts his strength in a man. The person to put your strength in should be big, strong and reliable. In fact, very big, very strong and very reliable. Trust in the Lord most high and he will prove himself mighty on your behalf. God revealed himself in the person of Jesus Christ. He is very big, very strong and very reliable. God wants to infuse his strength into you. He also wants to prove himself strong and mighty on your behalf. God does not and has not made you timid or fearful. His word says in 2Tim 1 v7:
7For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Your true strength therefore depends on how much you can tone your spiritual muscle you have in the Lord, not on contrary powers which are false powers and give fear. Nor is it a physical power on how many pounds of dumbbell you can lift. As a sportsman trains himself for the big occasion such as an Olympic with his eyes on the gold, we are admonished to be strong in the Lord or as stated in 2 Tim 2 v 1 … be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. Tone your spiritual muscles to receive more strength by diligent study and obedience to the word of God and in prayers. The more you do this the more reserve strength you have which you can depend upon when you need it. You will need those spiritual muscles for the big occasions – fights with the devil and all the evil forces. Continue to put your trust in the Lord and he will not disappoint you.
