LIVING LIFE WITH FULLNESS OF STRENGTH

**************************************************

INTRODUCTION

The Lord has promised to grant us all the strength that we need in our life. We can have the strength for each day of our life. We need not face any day in our life without the strength that we need. The Lord will never allow any trial that is beyond our strength to bear. Our strength is revealed in our time of adversity. If we faint in the day of adversity , our strength is small. We must receive the strength that the Lord has so graciously promised us, in order to live victoriously.

THE MESSAGE

1. STRENGTH FROM THE LORD

We must receive our strength from the Lord. When we are strong in the Lord and are filled with His power , we can face the challenges of life and overcome them. When our strength is in the Lord , we can go through the valley of tears and still come out strong and go from strength to strength. We can turn tragedies into triumphs and stumbling blocks into stepping stones. We can endure the changing circumstances of life with contentment and tranquility. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.

EPHESIANS 6:10

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.

PSALM 84:5-7

Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.

As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools.

They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.

PHILIPPIANS 4:11-13

I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.

I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.

I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

2. STRENGTH FROM AN INTIMATE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD

We must receive our strength from an intimate knowledge of God. When we know the Lord and His greatness and His goodness and faithfulness , we will be filled with faith and confidence. We must know the promises of God for every situation that we face. We must live in close relationship with the Lord. When we walk close to the Lord we will be filled with supernatural courage and boldness. If we live far away from the Lord we shall be weak and powerless to withstand any trials and temptations.
