Strong Enough

January 27, 2020—

When we are caught in the vice of habit or addiction, it seems the struggle to escape is more than we can handle. Today’s song by Matthew West reminds us that whatever we face in this life, God is “Strong Enough” to help us overcome.

I know I’m not strong enough to be

Everything that I’m supposed to be

I give up, I’m not strong enough

Hands of mercy won’t you cover me

Lord, right now I’m asking You to be strong enough

Strong enough

Today, we pray that God will lend us His strength and courage to overcome whatever stands between us and His will—our faith in Him is the firm foundation on which we rest.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

You must, You must think I'm strong
To give me what I'm going through
Well forgive me, forgive me if I'm wrong
But this looks like more than I can do
On my own

I know I'm not strong enough to be
Everything that I'm supposed to be
I give up, I'm not strong enough
Hands of mercy won't you cover me
Lord, right now I'm asking You to be strong enough
Strong enough, for the both of us, yeah

Well maybe, maybe that's the point
To reach the point of giving up
'Cause when I'm finally
Finally at rock bottom
Well that's when I start looking up
And reaching out

I know I'm not strong enough to be
Everything that I'm supposed to be
I give up, I'm not strong enough
Hands of mercy won't you cover me
Lord, right now I'm asking You to be strong enough
Strong enough...

'Cause I'm broken down to nothing
But I'm still holding on to the one thing
You are God and You are strong when I am weak

I can do all things
Through Christ who gives me strength
And I don't have to be strong enough, strong enough
I know I can do all things
Through Christ who gives me strength
And I don't have to be strong enough, strong enough

I know I'm not strong enough to be
Everything that I'm supposed to be
I give up, I'm not strong enough
Hands of mercy won't you cover me
Lord, right now I'm asking You to be strong enough
Strong enough, strong enough
