God’s strength is to be found spending time in His presence, seeking His face, and developing a deeper relationship with Him. Scripture says: “Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face continually.” (Psalm 105:4) If we want to live the abundant, victorious life that Jesus died to give us, then we are going to have to spend concentrated time seeking Him on a daily basis. How do you get to really know someone? You spend time with them, of course. You communicate with each other, and you share yourselves with each other. Our relationship with God is no different. Getting to know God takes time and effort, but it is most definitely worth it. Do you want to make a difference for God while you’re on this earth? Then you’re going to have to cultivate an intimate relationship with Him. When you do, He will bless you and use you in ways you never imagined, and you will impact the lives of countless people for all eternity.
We can acquire God’s strength by spending time in His Word–reading it, studying it, meditating upon it, and applying it to our lives and circumstances. By exercising these biblical principles, we literally fill ourselves with God’s Word. And a Word-filled believer is a powerful believer. The apostle John wrote: “You are strong and vigorous, and the Word of God is [always] abiding in you (in your hearts), and you have been victorious over the wicked one.” (1 John 2:14 AMP)
As soldiers of Christ, we are in a constant battle with Satan and the forces of evil. The Lord never meant for us to be weak and weary warriors; He re-created us in Christ to be overcomers. And we can find boundless strength from devoting ourselves to God’s Word.
The Bible is filled with thousands of supernatural promises that have the power to strengthen us in hard, and seemingly hopeless, times. If we will claim them in faith, we’ll receive all the help of heaven in every situation we face. No matter what difficult places you may be walking through today, the Lord wants to transform them into places of blessing and refreshment. Call upon Him now, and let Him fill you with the strength that only He can give.
