A week or so ago I put together a massive post with well over a hundred bible verses about money and talked about how we need to make sure that we always put God first in our lives before money – and everything else.
We can easily allow money to become our master, and God can quickly move to the background if we’re not careful.
No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. Matthew 6:24
One thing that occurred to me in the midst of listing all those verses, however, is that I never really touched on a topic that seems to be especially important right now in the midst of a double dip recession when so many people are having a hard time. The idea of looking to God for strength in the midst of hard times.

Bible Verses About Strength
Today I decided to bring together some encouraging and challenging verses talking about how and where we need to find strength in the midst of turbulent times. I hope you find them uplifting as well.
Where Do We Find Strength?
Where do we find our strength? In the Lord our God!

Don’t Worry Or Fear, Find Your Strength In Him
It can be so easy to give into worry, fear and despair, but with Him we can find strength, and look forward to wonderful things. He gives us hope!
Isaiah 43:1-3 Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord you God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
Luke 12:25-26 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? 26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?

God Gives Us A Spirit Of Strength And Power
Through faith in Christ we are given a spirit of power, love and discipline, and for that reason we have nothing to fear. We can hold onto his promises and be confident that he’ll see us through even the darkest of days.
2 Timothy 1:7 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

Hard Times May Come, But He’s There With Us Through Them All
Though we aren’t promised an easy life, we are told that Christ will be there with us when we believe in Him, that he won’t give us more than we can handle with His help, and even our hard times can be used to glorify God.
2 Corinthians 12:9 My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.
Philippians 4: 12-13 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 . . . . I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

1 Peter 5: 10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
Hebrews 4:16 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Deuteronomy 31:6,8 Be strong and bold; have no fear or dread of them, because it is the Lord your God who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.
2 Thessalonians 3:16 Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way.
Strength In Christ Our Lord And Savior
As the verses above illustrate, we’re told to call on Jesus Christ, and that he will hear us and give us strength, hope and a grace sufficient to carry us through. He will be our ever present help when we’re in need, and he can give us a peace that passes all understanding. For me that’s extremely encouraging.

Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous

His promises cover the entire range of our needs, troubles, and problems. He wants us to lay hold on these promises for help in every time of need. I don’t know your problems, troubles, difficulties, and needs. But this I do know. You have a hundred percent coverage in God’s promises as recorded in the Bible. They extend the needed help for every conceivable difficulty. They help when the outlook appears utterly hopeless.
These promises are as essential for Christian living, as food and drink are for physical life. Very few realize this. If believers understood this, they would appreciate them in every day living.

Think about these four possibilities that the promises of God can do for you, written by a gifted writer in Ministry of Healing, p 122:
Our Source of Power
- “It is in these promises that Christ communicates to us His grace and power.”
- “Received, assimilated, they are to be the strength of the character; the inspiration and sustenance of life.”
- “Nothing else can have such healing power.”
- “Nothing besides can impart the courage and the faith which give vital energy to the whole being.”
Is there anything else within your reach that has such potential? What a tremendous loss people experience when they short change themselves by failing to lay hold on these promises!
Do you want faith to give vital energy to your entire being? Do you want healing power, and inspiration to really live? Become acquainted with the promises of God as recorded in the Bible.
—These promises are as essential for Christian living, as food and drink are for physical life.—
Then enter into fulfillment of them in your life. It is tragic that so many who profess to follow Christ are ignorant of the very promises, which would give them what they need most. Hosea 4:6 says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”
Activating God’s Help in Our Christian Lives
We certainly need to know what is offered to us in God’s promises. Also where to locate them. We will list some which need to be considered from four angles. For solving some of your problems. For supplying your spiritual needs. For power for Christian living. For attaining your deepest desires.
One scripture is quoted on each item. Additional references are listed in parentheses in some instances. Carefully consider them.

Holding God’s Hand in Our Time of Need
Praise God for such provision! What a helping hand they extend! They reveal how your God is reaching His strong and loving hand to grasp your weak and trembling hand.
“May God help us to gather up the jewels of His promises, and deck memory’s hall with the gems of His Word. We should be armed with the promises of God. Our souls should be barricaded with them. When Satan comes in with his darkness and seeks to fill up my soul with gloom I repeat some precious promise of God…As I do this the light of the glory of God fills my soul” Ellen G White, in the Review and Herald, March 11, 1890 (emphasis supplied).
When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Comforter will bring to your remembrance the appropriate promises for your comfort, and help. Keep your heart full of the promises of God. Then where will be no room for doubt, fear, frustration and discouragement to come in. Problems will be solved as the rising sun absorbs the darkness.
“Talk faith, live faith, and in the face of every discouragement plant yourselves on the promises of God.” (Ibid., May 6, 1890).
Why Aren’t We Finding God’s Help?
Every one of these promises is an invitation to use it in prayer for needed help in these respective situations. Of course they cannot help you unless you apply them by faith and prayer. The vast majority of church members never use these promises in prayer.
This reveals why they don’t enjoy a true Christian life. Those who are familiar with some of these promises use them only to a limited degree. This is why they come short of having the continuing help which they so urgently need.
Unlocking Heaven’s Storehouse
Prayer is the key in the hand of faith to unlock heaven’s storehouse. But the right key does not give admittance unless you use it. You need to know how to insert it into the lock. Then do it. So it is with promise-based prayers for the sure answers.
Follow this four-step procedure, and it will bring results
- Find the promise of God in your Bible that offers what you need at that particular time.
- By the grace of God meet the condition in the promise. Do your part. One important factor is to believe with all your heart that God will do for you exactly what He says in this promise.
- Take this promise to the Lord in prayer and ask Him to do for you as specified in the promise.
- As you ask God to fulfill His promise, believe that He does it as that moment. Believe that you receive what you requested according to His promise. In some cases it may be a matter of believing that what He has promised will come to you when you need it. But in such cases you have the gift in His sure promise.
This is how to pray and be sure that you receive what you pray for. This kind of prayer can revolutionize your life for a better and happier experience. Apply it. Then you can ask God for peace, help, courage, strength, and victory, and always receive help. Why limp along in spiritual weakness when by applying God’s promises in prayer you may have your needs supplied to the full!
