What is God's Strength?
The strength of God is dominion over all of creation, the creator Himself. God's strength is demonstrated in His acts towards us and through his promises. God’s strength, unlike ours, has the power to consistently strengthen us as it is part of our relationship with Him. Even when we are weak, God comforts our weakness and even asks that we place our burdens on Him as He has the ability to support us. God’s strength is our inheritance, in that through Him we are born again creatures and death has no power. His Word highlights the many facets of his character, including His strength. This strength is accessible to us if we believe what He offers us.
