[b]My brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.[/b]My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only. The gospel of Christ ... is the power of God unto salvation.I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily. We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.The joy of the Lord is your strength. Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness.EPH. 6:10. II Cor. 12:9,10. ‑Psa. 71:16. ‑Rom. 1:16. Phi. 4:13. ‑Col. 1:29. ‑II Cor. 4:7. Neh. 8:10. ‑Col. 1:11.
