Strength comes Straight from God

Was praying for a friend today, and God led me to this verse.
"God said this once and for all; how many times Have I heard it repeated? 'Strength comes Straight from God.'"
Psalm 62:11 (MSG)
As I thought about the verse, a few truths came to mind.
1. God is watching over me every moment, therefore, God knows when I need strength.
2. God knows EXACTLY how much strength I need, and will provide the strength at the PRECISE moment I need it.
3. God's strength is AVAILABLE to me. I don't have to "go it alone".
4. The strength God is supplying is "stronger than" my situation, my problem, my fear, my weakness, or anything that may come my way.
5. Since the strength comes DIRECTLY from God, it will NEVER run out, or weaken.
6. God is providing strength. Am I grasping hold or am I relying on my own strength—which is weak and limited?
7. God said it. That means it's SOLID TRUTH! As song says, "God said it, I believe it. That settles it for me!"
