“So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs — but of God who shows mercy.” Romans 9:16

“You have a little strength.” Revelation 3:8

“Go in this might of yours…. I will be with you.” Judges 6:14, 16

A little strength in the Christian is the strength of God through Christ the second Adam, and consequently stronger than the power of Satan and the first Adam, should it seem ever so strong. Nay, it is the death of the old man already and kills him by degrees more and more, till at last, when we drop this body of sin, it will destroy him entirely. Believers in such a state may think themselves weaker than before they had any grace, not being able now to advance in their new and better course so rapidly as they did in the course which they have, through grace, forsaken. They no longer swim with the stream, experiencing no resistance — but have incessantly to contend against the most determined opposition. Thus they are made to feel their own insufficiency and learn both to ascribe all their past progress to Divine grace and to rely on its continued communication for their future safety and improvement.

Therefore we must not give over praying and hoping in this case; but, as it is only the lovingkindness of the merciful Redeemer that preserves and strengthens the poor and feeble, we rather ought to be more earnest in drawing near to Him with all our misery, weariness, and apprehensions. God’s strength is for the weak and feeble; and the weaker we feel, the clearer is our title to it, and the stronger our claim upon it.
