I will go in the strength of the Lord God… (Psalm 71:16a NKJV)
Have you ever experienced the anointing of the Lord as a source of physical strength? I have! I have experienced tremendous anointing when I confess the Lord’s strength.
Many times, I have felt weak before speaking at a crusade or convention, especially those times that I’ve traveled long distances, to places like Ethiopia and Sudan, when jet lag sets in. I’ve had times when I’ve thought, “I’m so tired! I don’t have the strength of a sleeping cat!” But when I say those things, God has always said back, “Well, I’m not tired!” God tells us that when we are weak, we should confess His strength. We can go in the strength of the Lord.
Samson received the same anointing of strength that we experience (see Judges 13-16). God’s anointing would break in upon Samson, and he would experience strength beyond that of any man! He could then perform supernatural feats of might. The Bible shows us many instances of supernatural strength and endurance being given to a mortal man when he was at work for God’s Kingdom. Even Jesus had a man’s body, but God’s supernatural strength. Let’s claim our physical heritage in Jesus!
When we are weak, let’s say, “I am strong.” It works; we will receive our supply of supernatural strength…I know it!
Dear Heavenly Father, today we grasp the physical strength that You have for our day. As our day is mighty in You, so is our strength. In Jesus Name, Amen.
