Where does our strength come from?

Have you ever read this verse and thought “I can do that!” You really can’t. Our individualized, American, Western mindset says, “It’s all about me! Personal power!” But it’s not. It’s all about Him. He has all the power. We’re pretty weak all by ourselves. It’s only through Jesus that we have any strength at all. So next time you read this verse, focus less on the “I” and more on the One who strengthens us (Jesus)! Our strength comes from Him and Him alone. Furthermore, it’s not something that can be earned through religious activity. This is passive! He gives us strength.  That’s just the way it is!
