Psalm 108:12-13, “ Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.  Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.”
When trying to do anything in life, especially things for the Lord, we have to make sure our strength comes from the right place. Our strength ought to come from the Lord. The verse above states, “Through God, we shall do valiantly.” There are many other verses that teach this same truth.
Zechariah 4:6 says, “Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.”
John 15:5 says, “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.”
2 Corinthians 12:9 reads, “And he said unto me, 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.”
Throughout God’s Word, we can clearly see that we ought not to do things in our own power. We ought to do things through God’s power. Where are we getting our strength today? Does it come from God or does it come from self? If we want to accomplish something great for God, our strength needs to come from Him. Ask God for His strength to help you in everything that you do.
