In contrast to human strength, God is the source and supplier of all spiritual strength through which believers can do all that God asks.

God is the source of spiritual strength

God gives strength Eph 6:10 See also Jdg 16:3,6,18-20; Ps 68:35; Isa 40:29-31; Lk 24:49; Ac 1:8; Eph 3:16,20; 2Th 2:16-17; 1Ti 1:12; 2Ti 1:7

Strength comes from the promise of his presence Jos 1:9 See also Dt 31:7-8; Ps 119:28; Isa 41:10; Jer 1:8; Hag 2:4; 2Ti 4:17

Strength comes from the realisation of his grace 2Ti 2:1 See also Ac 20:32; 1Co 15:10; Heb 13:9

Strength comes through the Holy Spirit Zec 4:6-7 See also Jdg 14:6; Lk 4:14; Eph 3:7,16

Overcoming strength is often veiled in weakness 2Co 12:7-10 See also Ps 8:2; Ac 14:19-20; 2Co 4:8-12; Col 2:15; Heb 11:32-38
