The Importance of Spiritual Strength

Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness. (Colossians 1:11, KJV)

Spiritual strength is one of the least understood yet crucial aspects of the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. It is essential for fulfilling God’s desires for us.

Strength is the inner ability to perform tasks or resist opposition. Many are familiar with physical strength, which enables activities like walking or reading through the functioning of muscles and physical structures. However, there are other dimensions of strength, such as mental, spiritual, and financial. For instance, financial strength is the ability to use money to accomplish things—financial power.

Similarly, mental strength is another dimension of strength beyond the physical. It enables the accomplishment of specific mental tasks, such as solving complex mathematical problems mentally, a skill not everyone possesses. Thus, strength is also present in the mind.

Strength goes beyond the physical or mental. Just as mental strength is required for mental activities, spiritual strength is necessary for spiritual tasks like loving others, believing God’s Word, being worry-free, resisting temptation, understanding Scripture, etc. Christians with these capacities are often described as strong in Scripture, while those lacking are considered weak.

The Lord wants us to be empowered with all might by the Holy Spirit. You can do all things through Christ, who strengthens you. Note that this isn’t only about performing miracles but about fulfilling God’s will in everyday life.

So, I leave you with this,

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. (Ephesians 6:10, KJV)


Who strengthens our spirit? (Eph. 3:16). How does He do this? (Ps. 104:15, Job 16:4, Acts 20:32).

Apply the Word

Are you spiritually weak? Realize you cannot live a Christian life without spiritual strength. Building this strength is a personal responsibility; the Spirit won’t do it alone. Don’t stay spiritually weak. Grow and be strong!


Pray earnestly for the Spirit’s help to build spiritual strength and live victoriously daily.
