Isaiah 40:29

“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” (NASB)


“He gives (nathan: deliver, grant, yield, bring, cause, utter, send, appoint, bestow, permit, ascribe, devote, extends) strength (koach or kowach: power, might, force, ability) to the weary (ya`eph: faint, fatigued) and increases the power of the weak ('own: lacking strength, might and vigor).”


God ascribes and sends power and might to the weary and fatigued ones and increases the strength of those lacking in might and vigor.


When I walk with the simple knowledge that my strength and abilities are not my own, I don’t have to worry about stress and burn out. He knows I am weak and in need of Him. He is my Power, my Source. As with any power source, it is only beneficial when I am connected to Him. All that I do flows from His strength in my weakness. He is all in all! Today, allow His strength to become your only ability and source.
