STRENGTH

What is strength, is it being able to lift heavy objects? Is it being able to pray for hours on end with no result (or at least not the result you wanted), is it in a fathers eyes as he walks his little girl down the isle?  Is it in a mothers touch to her unborn child?  How about the quiet strength to let a loved one go, to walk away when you know there is nothing more to do this side of heaven.  Tears are not a sign of being weak, they are a sign of great strength!  For if you weep, do you not convey the depth of strong love you have for this person.  Strength by a dictionary is :  1. The state, property, or quality of being strong.2. The power to resist attack; impregnability.3. The power to resist strain or stress; durability.4. The ability to maintain a moral or intellectual position firmly.5. Capacity or potential for effective action: a show of strength.6. a. The number of people constituting a normal or ideal organization: The police force has been at half strength since the budget cuts.b.

Look at #4: The ability to maintain a moral or intellectual position firmly

This means to stand up for what we believe is TRUTH, moral is where things guidelines for living come out of…morals tug at our heartstrings when we know we are walking into something bad.  God wants us to have strength, we just can not forgetful of where the original morals started.

Isaiah 40:31
but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
