“The sin underneath all our sins is to trust the lie of the serpent that we cannot trust the love and grace of Christ and must take matters into our own hands” ~Martin Luther

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with His love. Romans 5:3–5

“Our reliance on the Spirit is not intended to foster an attitude of “I can’t do it,” but one of “I can do it through Him who strengthens me.” The Christian should never complain or want of ability and power.” ~Jerry Bridges

We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. Colossians 1:11

“God, who foresaw your tribulation, has specially armed you to go through it, not without pain but without stain” ~C. S. Lewis

My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; He is mine forever. Psalm 73:26

“Life at its essence boils down to one day at a time. Today is the day!” `Jim Stovall

“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 2:9

Whatever you’re facing today. However weak and helpless you feel. His strength is perfect. He will give you everything you need to keep going.

  1. I like Oswald Chambers’ and Jim Stovall’s the best Deb. Thanks for the encouraging quotes.

    1. I love the reminder to focus on staying strong today in Jim Stovall’s quote. If I stay strong with God’s help today, He will give the the strength I need again tomorrow. Thanks Bill!

  2. That Martin Luther quote is the most powerful to me. Not only because it discerns that there are often heart and trust issues deep under the surface of our sins, but it also shows how prone we are to go our own way. The essence of sin is thinking that we know better than God.

    1. Loren, That quote really spoke to me. I have foolishly listened to the lies of Satan through the prompting of people. It is always a trust issue. His ways. His timing. His perfect love for us. Thanks and blessings!

  3. Oh Deb, I love how God can provide us messages thru others just when we need it. I wrote about our struggles with infertility this week. It was difficult to say the least, but there is so much strength that God can give us during our weaknesses. I love these quotes. Just what this girl needed to hear today! 🙂

    1. Nicki I’m so glad! We went through many years of the infertility roller coaster. Keeping you in my prayers and trusting He will cover you with with His strength, grace, and love. Blessings and hugs!

  4. I love the quote from C. S. Lewis! There will be pain, but no stain, for God goes before us.
    Blessings, Deb!

    1. Me too, Martha! Thanks so much for stopping to say ‘hi’ and join the conversation!

  5. I need this kind of encouragement today. Thank you so much for sharing this.

  6. I love these quotes and verses! Thank you, Deb. This quote especially struck me – “God, who foresaw your tribulation, has specially armed you to go through it, not without pain but without stain” ~C. S. Lewis

  7. Thank you, Deb, for finding and sharing all these wonderful quotes and scriptures about strength. I’m thinking of two friends who need to read these today–one is starting chemo today and the other’s husband has been in the hospital/rehab for 7 months. I’m sending them the link to this post. I know your words, the words of others, and the words of the Lord will strengthen them and bless them, as they have blessed me. May you have a wonderful weekend!
