You Are Strong.

I want to encourage you with something so simple – “all the forces of Hell cannot defeat you because you have a greater power within you.”  The power within you is greater than anything you could face.

The Bible says, “But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world” (1 John 4:4).  There is a power on the inside of your life that gives you a predisposition to victory – an inner strength that gives you the power to overcome any obstacles.

You can push through any problem.  You will win over worry and rebuild over the wreckage of your past.  All because God’s Spirit lives in you and that gives you a tremendous advantage. You are strong!  Declare today, “I AM STRONG.”

You may be reading this thinking, “That’s great Pastor for you. But my life has been too hard. My problems are too great.”  Listen to God’s promise: “He {God} gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless” (Isaiah 40:29).  God promises to give you power and strength. All you have to do is declare your promise!

Power of I Am Joel Osteen Todd BishopHere’s the thing: Just because you are strong does not mean you wont struggle.  We will always difficulty, problems, loss, hurt and death but God promises that no matter what you face you will get through it.

Hannah. She is in deep pain. Praying for a son. She is in deep pain.  The Lord sees her pain and answers her prayers. She has a son – names him Samuel. She takes her son to the priest and says, “God gave me a son. Now I am giving my son to God. Take him. Raise him. Use him.”

She receives her gift and then gives it back.  Then she rights another prayer: “My heart rejoices in the Lord! The Lord has made me strong!”  Hannah was able to declare “I am strong” because God filled her with the strength she needed.

Declare today, “I am strong. God has filled me with strength, endurance and the winner’s edge.
