Actually, strength is spiritual

Sometimes we hear an individual say, "I wish I could gain more strength." The Bible gives us some helpful thoughts about this. The Psalmist said, "It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect."  Ps. 18:32; In Nehemiah we read, "The joy of the Lord is your strength."  Neh. 8:10;

Strength is not body-given nor man-given, but God-given. Since it flows to us from our heavenly Father, it is actually spiritual and eternal—inextinguishable. Christ Jesus knew and relied fully on God, Spirit, as the source of his strength. He was conscious that God is all presence, substance, and power. As a result, he was able to feed the multitudes, calm the raging storm, walk on the water, heal the sick and the sinner, and raise the dead to life and freedom. Jesus had complete trust in God, and he always had sufficient strength to carry out his mission.
