Bible Verses About Strength- 25 Encouraging Scripture Quotes

Bible Verses about  strength must start and end with God. It is the power and strength that comes  from God that carries us on. As Christians we need to surrender to the strength  that God provides and His strength is made perfect in our weakness. As you read  through these scripture quotes about strength be encouraged in that it  is  not your strength that is needed but the strength that God willingly supplies.  Feel free to use this study for a devotional, topical Bible study or Sunday School lesson.

All Strength Comes From God

It is so refreshing to know that we can rest in  the strength and comfort that God will provide when facing troubles of many  kinds. Let Him have the glory and show himself strong. Listen to this Bible  verse: 2 Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro  throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose  heart is loyal to Him. In this you have done foolishly; therefore from now on  you shall have wars.” God wants to show Himself strong on your behalf.  Surrender to Him today and let the peace that He gives you take over. We cannot  fully serve God without full surrender to his Strength.

Strength Comes From God Bible Verses

Isaiah 40:28-31  Have  you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting  God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or  grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the  faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even  youths shall faint and be weary,and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who  wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount  up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be  weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Isaiah 41:10  fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will  strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

1 Chronicles 16:11  Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his  presence continually!

Exodus 15:2 The LORD  is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation; this is my God, and  I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him.

Philippians 4:13  I  can do all things through him who strengthens me.

Psalm 18:32-34  the God who equipped me with strength and made my way blameless. He made my  feet like the feet of a deer  and set me secure on the heights. He trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.

1 Corinthians 10:13  No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God  is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to  endure it.

Psalm  119:23  Even though princes sit plotting against me,  your servant will meditate on your statutes.

Examples of Showing Strength in the  Bible

The following Bible verses on being strong show us biblical examples of strength and the faith it takes to trust in God so completely that He is your strength. Imagine how much faith it took  for Abraham to be willing to sacrifice his long awaited son Isaac.

  • David

1 Samuel 30:6  And David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because all the people were bitter in soul, each for his sons and daughters. But David  strengthened himself in the LORD his God.

  • Paul

2 Timothy 4:17  But the Lord stood by me and strengthened me, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. So I was rescued from the lion’s mouth.

  • Peter

1 Peter 4:11  whoever  speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever.  Amen.

  • Joshua

Joshua 1:9-11  Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be  frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”  And Joshua commanded the officers of the people, “Pass through the midst of the camp and command the people, ‘Prepare your provisions, for within three days you are to pass over this Jordan to go in to take possession of the land that the LORD your God is giving you to possess.’”

  • Abraham

Genesis 22:1-3  After these things God tested Abraham and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here am I.” He said, “Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the  mountains of which I shall tell you.”   So Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and his son Isaac.  And he cut the wood for the burnt offering and arose and went to the place of which God had told him.

Bible Verses Showing Strength Comes From  Faith Not From Fear

Are you struggling through a situation today and are grasping for answers? How should you respond? Respond with faith and not fear, knowing the promises of God and His mighty hand will hold you through any situation!

Psalm  27:1  The LORD is my light and my  salvation; whom shall I fear?  The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Matthew 17:20  He said to them, “Because of your little faith.  For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”

Mark 10:52  And Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.”  And immediately he recovered his sight and followed him on the way.

Matthew 21:21   And Jesus answered them, “Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen.

Bible Scripture Quotes About Strength as  Related to Courage

Jesus has truly overcome the world the day he  gave His life for all on the cross.  Take peace and be encouraged knowing it is Him who is mighty to save. He will not leave you  or forsake you.

Deuteronomy  31:6 Be strong and courageous.  Do not fear or be in  dread of them,  for it is the LORD your God who goes with you.  He will not leave  you or forsake you.”

John 16:33  I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace.  In the world you will have tribulation.  But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

Psalm  23:4   Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Strength Bible Verses- Because of the  Hope and Love we have In Jesus Christ

Do not lose heart or become discouraged as we have the Hope of Jesus Christ and eternal life to carry us through.  Stay in the Bible and pray continually seeking the face of God and He will be with you.  I pray these Bible verses fill your heart with hope from the truth of  God’s mighty word.

Zephaniah  3:17    The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18  So we do not lose heart.  Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.  For this light momentary affliction is  preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison,  as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen.  For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

2 Timothy 1:7  for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

Job 13:15  Though he slay me, I will hope in him; yet I will argue my ways to his face.

Romans 5:5  and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

Christian Quote About  Strength

“Those who serve God must serve Him in His own way, and in His strength, or He will never accept their service. That which man doth, unaided by divine strength, God can never own. The mere fruits of the earth He casteth away; He will only reap that corn, the seed of which was sown from heaven, watered by grace, and ripened by the sun of divine love. God will empty out all that thou hast before He will put His own into thee; He will first clean out thy granaries before He will fill them with the finest of the wheat.  The river of God is full of water; but not one drop of it flows from earthly springs.  God will have no strength used in His battles but the strength which He Himself imparts. Are you mourning over your own weakness?  Take courage, for there must be a consciousness of weakness before the Lord will give thee victory. Your emptiness is but the preparation for your being filled, and your casting down is but the making ready for your lifting up.” – Charles  Spurgeon

D.L. Moody once said that “If you partner with God, Make your plans big!”   I encourage you today to make God your  partner. Whatever your burden is that caused you to search for strength, give it up to him now.  Do not let another minute go by without completely surrendering your burdens to Him.  God wants to be your strength.  Surrender to Him in your weakness and let Him show Himself strong.
