5 Verses for When You Need Strength


Disappointment, discouragement, fear, daily struggles…some days take everything we have. When we rely only on our own strength and what we have to give, we quickly become worn out and discouraged. {Tweet this}

But when we turn to God for His strength and replenishment, we are able to keep moving forward. We are able to keep giving to our family and friends. We are able to keep hoping, not because of what we can see, but because of Who we know God is. {Tweet this}

5 Scripture Verses for When You Need Strength

Search for the Lord and for his strength; continually seek him.
God’s strength is available to us when we seek His presence in our daily lives.
The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring.
God supplies the living water we need. When I get busy and don’t make time to spend with God and in His Word, I find myself parched and desperately in need of His restoring and strengthening. But, when I sit and rest with Him I feel nourished. He guides and gives strength, but if we don’t pay attention, we can miss it.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
God, in all His power, is with us ready to protect and save. He strengthens us day-by-day to withstand trouble, to wait, and to persevere.
Christ gives me the strength to face anything.
Whatever comes our way, whatever God calls us to do, we can handle it because Christ empowers us through His strength.
Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
No matter what we face, God promises to be with us. He offers us comfort, reassurance, encouragement, and His support. Is there anything better?
In Christ,
Laura

  1. I love Psalm 46:1 because it is what I call a declaration prayer. A strong truth to stand on when we are feeling weak so that He can strengthen us. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Laura, thank you for these verses. They mean a lot to me today. I texted one to a friend as well. The verse from Isaiah was one I have been reading over and over the past few days. God is still speaking it into me here today. Thank you.
