Lately I have been thinking about what real strength is. Of course one of the first scriptures that came to my mind was Philippians 4:13:
“I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” (Berean Study Bible)
I know Strongs’s concordance 1743, defines this strength as empower, enable (increase in) strength, to be (make) strong. However, this only made me wonder more about this word ‘strength’.
Around this time, I had a vivid impression of a treasure chest with the word ‘STRENGTH’ written on it. I saw this chest was full of many things such as; God’s love, freedom, acceptance, healing and identity. Whatever I happened to need was inside.
Not to be found in this ‘treasure chest’ were negative things like unworthiness, rejection, bitterness, or self-hate. Nothing was there which would take away my strength in Christ.
So then, I CAN do all things through Christ who gives me strength. Whatever I need is in the treasure chest of strength. I just have to grab hold of the truth provided.
What is your need today? Reach into the ‘treasure chest’ and you will find all you need in Him.
