I know that any strength I have comes directly from God. Not only is He my strength when fighting against my sinful flesh, He is my strength in reacting to the sinful world. Let me just say...I'm down...I'm tired...I'm weary...it's taking all I have to type this blog...so I'm sharing with you the outcome of the ounce of strength He gave me today. When I feel weak, I try to turn to this song and let it wash over me...
After hearing this today, the Spirit whispered to me and led me to search "strength" on biblegateway.com...His Word, His Truth feeds me and strengthens me once again...
