What do you immediately think of when you hear the word “strength?” Perhaps you think of working out and building up muscle mass and endurance. Maybe you think about emotional strength found in a loving support system of friends. Some may equate strength as not showing any emotion in the midst of crisis. There are many concepts that come to mind.
I want to ask another question. Where does real strength come from? Would you consider and meditate on the thought that Daniel gives us?
Daniel 11:32 “…the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. “
Real strength comes from a personal relationship with God. A relationship that secures eternal life. One that bears you up through trials and distress. More yet, this strength enables you to do exploits, what seemed to be impossible before.
Let’s seek real strength in a daily, dynamic relationship with God.
