I was reading a book on civil engineering by Samuel E. French, Ph.D., P.E.,when he wrote this about strength of materials.And I quote; Probably no other subject impacts every study in civil engineering as much as does strength of materials.Regardless whether the study is in theoretical mechanics, structures, soils, materials, or any of the many other specialties in civil engineering, the dependence on strength of materials is evident in every study.
At this point you may ask what is strength of materials got to do in a Christian blog ? Just as there are strength in material world there is also strength in the spiritual realm. I believe strength in the spiritual depends on the God we worship. Our strength comes not from us but from above. For Christians , strength comes from God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Strength comes from meditating on the word of God, prayer and obedience.
Apostle Paul wrote " Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might, put on the whole armor of God."
God told Joshua " Be strong and courageous ." God also said in Joshua 1:8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous and then you will have good success."
