God gives inner strength to every person who trusts in Him and in His salvation. Here are several Bible passages on the topic:
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. (Isa 41:10 NKJV)
I ask God from the wealth of his glory to give you power through his Spirit to be strong in your inner selves . . . (Eph 3:16 GNT)
. . . strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy . . . (Col 1:11 NKJV)
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Phil 4:13 NKJV)
This is one of the blessed benefits of our salvation—to receive inner strength and perseverance from God, our Savior. Whenever we face difficulties, challenges, sorrows, or calamities, we may cry out to the Lord in our trouble and He will deliver us. Take note of these Bible verses:
Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and He delivered them out of their distresses. (Ps 107:6)
. . . persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra—what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. (2 Tim 3:11, emphasis added)
