What, Or Who Do You Get Your Strength And Wisdom From?

Strong men! NeedEncouragement.comPlease contact us if you have questions or comments or want encouragement.

If asked where their strength comes from, a person could say from their muscles fueled by food. But, as a Christian, I would say it comes from God since I had had a relationship with Him since 1986 and even before, although it was not very intimate.

It was not until I was born again on June 25, 1986, that my relationship with God became more real, and I could see God working in my life to clean me up from drugs and alcohol, and starting to function like a more healthy person. God is the One from whom I have gained my strength and wisdom. The knowledge I have gained from God and others that He put in my life has given me a fresh start. You, too, can have a new beginning today, all you need to do is be willing to get right with God, and He will do the rest. Unfortunately, your life will still have problems, but all things are possible with God! You will be forgiven and get a new lease on life, no matter what your life was before! ~ Bill Greguska

For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. 1 Timothy 4:8

Find Your Strength And Wisdom Because God Is With You!



Where Do You Find Your Strength And Wisdom?

Personal strength is often a combination of spiritual, mental, and physical strength. Remember to mention humility and gentleness combined with love, sometimes displayed simultaneously. Strength is not only measured with physical ability. Where can you and I go to find strength when we feel weak? I will tell you that the Bible offers many valuable scriptures to help you find strength in difficult times. You will find encouragement when you are down and when you seek it with a sincere heart. The devil’s goal is to make us feel weak and destroy us. We need to fight his attacks on our mind and body soul with God’s word! You can find the strength to get through the hard times when you read and meditate on these verses to discover how great and mighty our God is and how he wants to provide for you. Put God’s promises from the Bible so you can call on them in times of need! We overcome the devil’s power with God’s strength: “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7. It is by first lining up ourselves with the strength of God through our total submission to Him that we can withstand the tricks and schemes of the evil one Ephesians 6:10-11.

Are you aware that whenever the Holy Spirit of God comes into the heart of a sinner (like you and me), we then can acknowledge God as our Lord and Savior? Then admit our total helplessness and dependence upon Him. We will then experience His strength, His power, and His might.

Isaiah 40:29   He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.


Strength And Wisdom In Tough Times!

Problems come in many different sizes and shapes. They can come from broken relationships, financial difficulties, physical ailments, and emotional difficulties, to name a few. Here’s how you can find strength in tough times by turning to God for His help and comfort.
  • Instead of avoiding suffering merely, seek to learn and grow through it.
  • Follow God and your faith, not your feelings.
  • Analyze the possible reason for the difficulty you’re currently experiencing.
  • Obey God’s will, do not lean on your emotions. 
  • Ask wise questions so you can make intelligent choices.
  • Spend time with God regularly with prayer and Bible reading.


Renewing My Strength

(This is from The Book I wrote)

Lord, I am grateful that you have shown me the importance of renewing my strength. When I was struggling through separation and divorce, you used the words of my pastor, Dave Briscoe, to refocus me: “Life is a marathon, not a sprint; throttle down, or you will run out of gas.”

It is always wise to ask you, Lord, what I need to do and when. You have shown me I need to pace myself and to make sure I get a good night’s sleep.  Sometimes a good workout is refreshing, and other times a 20-minute nap is what is needed. It’s wise for me to be in tune with you, Lord, so I know when to push myself and when to pamper myself. You have also shown me that focusing on others and trying to cheer them up can make me feel refreshed. Thank you for these important insights, which make me more effective as I work for your kingdom.

Life can be stressful and overwhelming – I am so glad to be able to come to you for strength, Lord.  Daily communication with you helps me avoid burn out, and I trust that you will give me what I need when I need it, in your perfect timing. Help me be strong and healthy, not only for my sake but for the sake of others I know and love, so that I can glorify you with my life.

We need quiet time to examine our lives openly and honestly – spending quiet time alone gives your mind an opportunity to renew itself and create order. ~ Susan L. Taylor, American editor, writer, and journalist.  Great just as it is!
