What does the Bible say about strength?

"He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak." Isaiah 40:29

"but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

"The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe." Proverbs 18:10

"The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped." Psalm 28:7

"The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace." Psalm 29:11

"My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." Psalm 46:1

"But he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.' Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weakness, in insults, in hardships, in persecution, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong." 2 Corinthians 12:9-11

Many times God will allow us to come to the end of ourselves, in our mental, emotional and physical strength. Our "natural" resources have limits. However, our "super natural" resources, those only God can provide, are not limited.

The Holy Spirit utilizes faith as a conduit to provide "super natural" strength. In Philippians 4:19 it says, "All my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus." When we invest our resources into trusting God, regardless of how we feel or what makes sense to us, the Holy Spirit dispenses from the Throne Room of God exactly the amount of energy and strength we need.

Often our strength is diminished when we waste energy through either worry or trying to analyze our situation. Faith is best lived out one step at a time as we practice the presence of God in the present moment.
