The Lord is the strength of my life. He’s the strength of my spirit. He’s the strength of my mind. He’s the strength of my heart, my lungs, my blood, and my kidneys. He’s the strength of my immune system. He’s the strength of my emotions. Never again say you’re weak in any area of your life. The weaker you feel, the more you say, “I’m strong. I’m strong in the Lord. The Lord is the strength of my life.”
You have to keep saying it. After you’ve said it two or three times, your head will say, “We’ve said it. Go on to something new.”
Say, “Shut up! I’m not saying this for the benefit of my head; I don’t believe God with my head.” It’s not knowledge that gets you through bodily pain and trouble. It’s a strong spirit. Faith is of the heart. How would you know it’s working in you? Oh, you won’t have to ask. If you have to ask someone, you need to close your eyes and keep saying it. When it starts working in you, when the Word of God that is quick, alive, and powerful starts working in you, you know it. Immediately you begin to feel stronger. How can you tell if you’re weak in your spirit? Your spirit is fearful and anxious, and you dread. Your spirit is depressed. You feel dragginess. When you’re weak in your spirit, you don’t want to do anything; you’re lazy. You have no incentive, and you have no excitement. Is this describing any conditions? You’re weak. All you think about and talk
about is what’s wrong and what’s bad. You talk about quitting. You think about giving up. There’s no use in going on. That is all the fruit of a weak spirit.
Let me tell you how you are when your spirit gets strong. When your spirit is strong, there’s peace. Peace and joy is the evidence of a strong spirit. If someone is really depressed, they’re weak spiritually. The Bible says, “The joy of the Lord is your strength.” (Nehemiah 8:10) When you’re strong in your spirit, you have a freshness about you. You have a confidence about you. You’re ready to take on a big job. You’re ready to clean out the closet. You’re ready to tackle the garage and look behind the shelves where no one has looked in years.
When you’re weak, you look at it and say, “I will wait and do it another day.” But when you’re strong in your spirit, you’re confident and ready to tackle it, and you say, “Yes I can! Yes I will!”
A weak spirit sits in the tent and cries, “They’re big. They’re too big, and the wall is too tall. There is no way…” What does a strong spirit say? Caleb and Joshua said, “Yes, we can! Their defense has departed from them! God is with us! Come on, let’s go get it!” It’s a strong spirit compared to a weak spirit. It’s obvious. You don’t have to have a word of knowledge or have a vision. It’s obvious when you’re strong or when you’re weak.
What if you’re so weak you just have no vision? That’s why people get mad when someone who is full of faith and vision comes along saying, “We’re going to believe for jets and ships, and we’re going to believe for big properties…” It makes them mad because it shows how weak they are. Your vision and your faith is so out beyond theirs that they don’t want to put forth any effort to get strong. They just want to come up with a new doctrine about why it’s not for everyone, and why it’s not the will of God anyway. That’s why it is so popular—this “no-fault” religion. No matter what happens, it’s not your fault. It’s the mysterious, unknowable will of God. All the weak ones say, “That’s right. It’s not our fault. That’s right. You just never know.”
Psalm 29:11 says, “The LORD will give strength to His people; the LORD will bless His people with peace.”
The Amplified Bible says, “The Lord will give [unyielding and impenetrable] strength to His people…”
Say this out loud:
He gives me unyielding strength, impenetrable strength. He gives me unfailing strength. He makes me strong.
He makes me strong.
He gives me strength.
Now the ideal situation is to just do this for at least an hour. For most people, it takes them that long to finally get their mind quiet and to begin to say it with a little faith. If you’ve never done it before, then you don’t know what I’m talking about. But I’m telling you, you could sit in your chair at home, by yourself, and say, “I am strong in the Lord. I am strong. He is the strength of my life.” You could sit and do that for two hours, just like you could sit there and worry and fear for two hours, and feel like you don’t have enough strength to get to the bed. You can lay there and praise and worship Him, and say, “You are my strength. Oh, God, You are everlasting strength. You are the strength of my spirit and my mind and my life. You quicken me. You make me full of strength.
You make me strong. I’m strong in You.” If you do that for an hour, strength will literally come out of Him through your spirit into your body.
You might ask, “Are you saying it actually will affect my physical body?”
Yes! It will affect your organs, your blood stream, and your brain cells. Yes! According to how much faith you have. Or, you can just sit there without faith and keep saying, “I’m strong, I’m strong, I’m strong. I’m strong. Strong, strong, strong. Yes, I’m strong. I’m strong. I’m strong.” But it’s going to take you an exceedingly long time to get any benefit out of that if you do. It’s not just repeating it. It’s faith. That’s why, when you read your Bible, you don’t just speed-read it and scan it. You sit down and say, “Thank You, Lord, for this precious Holy Word. It’s life to me. It’s health and medicine to all my flesh. Open it up to me. Help me to see it, and show me how to put it into practice. In Jesus’ Name.” Then you read each word, and you savor it. You’re not in a hurry. You read it out loud. You show it respect, and you expect something to happen when you read it. According to what you put into it, that’s what you’ll get.
