Oh God; Give Me Strength!

Have you ever faced a critical situation where you thought you just couldn’t go on anymore and cried out, “Oh God give me strength!” Probably we all have faced such times. Have you wondered just how God can give us strength? One thing for sure, God never abandons those that place their trust in him and He has a number of ways to strengthen his servants. One thing God can do is that He can give a person his spirit. You may recall the case of Samson, who through an error on his part, found himself in a weak state and
in dire straits. Samson did not despair. Instead, he cried out to God to give him strength. Did God answer his prayer? He most certainly did! In fact, God gave him superhuman strength. (Judges 16:28-30) God’s spirit is the most powerful force in the universe and God gives it to those that obey him and those that repent from their errors. (Acts 5:32; Ephesians 3:14-16)) Another thing that God can do to strengthen us is give us encouragement through the promises found within the pages of

the Holy Bible. Reading and studying the Bible can be compared to eating nourishing food. From our food we get energy and strength. Regularly feeding ourselves from God’s word can energize us and give us strength to endure life’s challenges. (Jeremiah 15:16; Matthew 4:4) Besides these, God can also strengthen us through our fellow believers. Kind and encouraging words of others that believe in God can be very strengthening to us when we face trials or are discouraged. Even the sight of a fellow believer can be strengthening to us. (Isaiah 35:3-4; Colossians 4:11) God has many ways of giving strength to his servants on a regular basis and not just in times of crisis so that they can continue to be vigorous in power to continue to do his will. So, let us avail ourselves of the different ways that God can give strength to those that cry out to Him for strength. He can give not just strength but even as in the case of Samson, God can give strength that is beyond what is normal to his servants. (Isaiah 12:2; 2 Corinthians 4:7)
