I have created a repeater with a label inside
asp:Repeater ID="RepeaterStrongestSkillsMax2" runat="server">
                         <asp:Label ID="lbl" runat="server" Visible="True"></asp:Label>

Not i am tring to foreach a listbox and add the value from the listbox to the repeater label
foreach (var relevantSkillsStrongest in ListBoxRelevantSkillForMission.Items)
                var lbl = (Label)RepeaterStrongestSkillsMax2.FindControl("lbl");
                string valueTextBox = relevantSkillsStrongest.ToString();
                int indexOf = valueTextBox.IndexOf("-", StringComparison.Ordinal);
                string value = valueTextBox.Substring(0, indexOf - 1);
                lbl.Text = value + " ";

                RepeaterStrongestSkillsMax2.DataSource = relevantSkillsStrongest;

You can not directly find control from Repeater You have to iterate to RepearterItem and find control from it.

foreach(RepeaterItem item in RepeaterStrongestSkillsMax2.Items){
var label = item.FindControl("lbl") as Label; //Find control from RepeaterItem
label.Text = "Your value";
