Devo:

“A wise man is strong, and a man of knowledge increases power.”
– Proverbs 24:5

How do we become strong? In physical terms, the body becomes stronger through exercise and the development of muscles. Nations gain strength by expanding their resources and developing their economic and military might. But there are other types of strength.

The Bible tells us that “a wise man is strong.” The principle here is that real strength is a by-product of God’s wisdom. Why? Because those who have Godly wisdom are given a power beyond their natural abilities. They have strength of character, which comes from resolve, determination, faith, and convictions.

The Hebrew words used in this passage suggest that strength comes from having skills and then developing these skills; from being experienced and intelligent; to be so equipped that we can face challenges and persevere in the face of obstacles; and seeking God’s discernment so we are able to make wise decisions.

In a similar way, if we want to increase in “power,” the Bible tells us we should be a person “of knowledge.” Physical strength and prowess have certain advantages, but the Bible continually reminds of the importance of spiritual strength. This means being filled with the Spirit, surrendering to the lordship of Jesus, and basing our lives on God’s Word.

But we also are warned, “If you fall under pressure, your strength is too small” (v. 10 NLT). This implies being ready for the pressure situations we all face from time to time. We must be armed, prepared, and equipped—ready for spiritual attacks and knowing how to respond.

The Bible also reminds us that, in ourselves, we are weak. As Paul taught, we should realize that “when I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Corinthians 12:10). Real strength comes from reliance on God.

Do you face challenges in your life? Remember to seek God’s wisdom. Ask Him for His perspective on the issues you face. And remember to depend on Him, knowing that He is with you. Regardless of the problems you face, you can trust Him.

Strength
