Elevated Faith

As Strong As Steel

In the last few days, I’ve been feeling quite weak. In the Bible, Joseph went through seasons of weakness and difficulty. He was rejected by his family, sold into slavery, lied about, mistreated, abandoned, falsely accused, and thrown in jail. But through it all, Joseph never gave up. He kept pressing through and doing the right thing even though the wrong thing kept happening.

The Bible says in Psalm 105:18, ‘as Joseph lay in prison in those chains of iron…’ In other words, as things got hard and difficult while in prison – Joseph kept fighting, and his soul became as strong as that steel. God developed a supernatural strength in him that no one could take away.

Today, if you are going through difficulty, God wants to increase your strength. He wants to increase your power to overcome. He wants to make your inner man as strong as steel. When you keep standing, keep believing, and keep doing the right thing, you are opening yourself to God’s supernatural strength. That’s when you know you are growing in Him. Be strong today. Keep pressing forward, because God is at work increasing strength in you so that you can live in victory in every area of your life!

“He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound].” (Isaiah 40:29, AMP) 

Let’s Pray

Yahweh, today I surrender every difficulty to You. Father, I release my questions, hurts and frustrations. God, I choose to trust You and do the right thing. Increase Your strength in me so that I can live in the victory and become as strong as steel, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
