Strength and Power
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Isaiah 40:29 NIV
Weakness is the opposite of strength. Weakness is the absence of strength. Infirm is weak mind, will, or character: irresolute, vacillating : not solid or stable: insecure, feeble, frail, ill, lack of health, ailing, sick, unstable.
Where do you get strength and power?
Hebrew for strength is “Otsmah” which also means abundance.
The Hebrew word for power is “koach” which means power of people or king, human strength like Samson, power to gain wealth, power conferred by God and strength of soil to produce.
I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
The scriptures tell us our strength and power comes from the Lord. Weakness is lacking the power, strength and abundance of the Lord. As a man thinks in his heart so is he. If you think weakness, lack, sickness, can’t have or do, woe is me, I am a failure, then God’s power and strength cannot be manifested.
Here are some anti-aging scriptures which renews your strength:
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies;
5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103:2-5 NKJ
Caleb at age 85 was ready for battle and could say, “I am still as strong today as the day Moses sent me out; I’m just as vigorous to go out to battle now as I was then.” Caleb did not buy into the getting-older-thinking. He knew there was unfinished work to be done. His strength came from the Lord.
The Lord’s power and strength in your life will eliminate weakness. Daily washing your mind with the Word of God will bring you strength, comfort, boldness and power in Christ Jesus.
