In This video I will compare and contrast great feats of human strength against the strength and power that God provides to us spiritually. I use boxer- Rocky Marciano as my illustration of perhaps the one sports figure that demonstrates strength and power in human form. I take that great human strength and compare it to the Strength God provides through His Holy Spirit to those who believe in Him through Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 40:29- He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the
weak. (our strength is found in the Lord).

Isaiah 14:12-15- (The fall of Satan).

Isaiah 54:17- (The power and strength given to true believers).

Job 1:6-12- (Satan is allowed only to go so far).

Romans 8:38-39-(Nothing can separate a believer from the Lord).

Phillipians 4:13 -(I can do all things through Him who gives me strenth).

Ephesians 1:4-6- (We were chosen before creation. Predestined, Adopted…).

Ephesians 6:10-18-(The Armor of God- How we take our stand).

STRENGTH- How Strong are You??

Anthony Iovino- September 2005

Dear Friends:

I put this study together back in 2005 and have used it to compare and contrast the differences in human strength vs. the incomprehensible strength of our Creator.  I picked Boxer- Rocky Marciano as an example of human strength.  Rocky to me is a great example of someone who was capable of super-human strength all wrapped up in a 185 lb. frame.  A punch that is on par with getting hit with a piece of steel.  Stamina and endurance that rival a machine.

Take some time to read and study the scripture passages I have included in this study and meditate on the all surpassing strength of Jesus, who is capable of defeating all the armies of Hell with the breadth of His mouth!

Blessings In Christ.
