Greatness lies not in being strong, but in the right use of strength.
He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit, than he who captures a city.
Strength that comes from confidence can be lost in conceit.
Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.
1 Corinthians 10:12
Before destruction the heart of man is haughty,
but humility goes before honor.
Don't pray for an easy life, pray for strength to handle adversities.
Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might.
In the fear of the Lord there is strong confidence,
and His children will have refuge.
