Were Does Your Strength Come From?

Key Scripture

1 Timothy 1:12,14
[12]I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength to do his work. He considered me trustworthy and appointed me to serve him,
[14]Oh, how generous and gracious our Lord was! He filled me with the faith and love that come from Christ Jesus.


Whenever Apostle Paul made statements like the one in our key scripture, he wasn’t just trying to be humble, it was simply a fact that all believers can relate to, and it’s one we should never forget or fail to acknowledge.

Always remember that who you are today, your salvation, your growth, the knowledge you have, it’s all God working in you.

Philippians 2:13 – For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him

Never forget this or begin to think that somehow it was you all the way. I know you did your Bible studies, I know you said your prayers, but what do you think kept motivating you, and kept pushing you to want to do more, or have you forgotten that high school class you dropped simply because the first lesson seemed so tough, and despite tough moments you’ve had growing in Christ, you haven’t still given up. It’s God working in you.

He’s the one that has given you strength, and that is sustaining you. You’ll see Apostle Paul say in one verse that he laboured more than all the other Apostles, yet in another verse he’ll say “I am what I am by the grace of God”.

This should reflect even in how we relate with other believer’s, encourage them and help them realise that strength comes from God in them. Be humble even in your encouragements, remember your strength is also from God. It’s a truth we should thank God for. God is in you, and is giving you strength, that’s awesome.

Philippians 4:13 – For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength


Thank you Lord for your strength and your work within me, teach me to always acknowledge this, amen.
