“The Lord is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him. — Exodus 15:2 Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. — 1 Chronicles 16:8-11 Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” — Nehemiah 8:10 And now my FAVORITE: I love you, Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. — Psalm 18:1-2 If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen. — 1 Peter 4:11 Words prefiguring Christ on the cross: But you, Lord, do not be far from me. You are my strength; come quickly to help me. — Psalm 22:19 Praise be to the Lord, for he has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. The Lord is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one. Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever. — Psalm 28:6-9 The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord is enthroned as King forever. The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace. — Psalm 29:10-11 But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble. — Psalm 59:16 Another favorite of mine: My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. — Psalm 73:26 I was pushed back and about to fall, but the Lord helped me. The Lord is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation. — Psalm 118:13-14 Probably the most well-known preacher in England in the 1800s was Charles Spurgeon. My favorite quote from him is a nine-word sentence on humility. He said, "Be not proud of race, face, place or grace." I do not think that he was saying that we shouldn't have self-respect or self-esteem in each of these areas. However, there is no place for followers of the Lord to be arrogant in these areas. See Michael's comments on taking pride in our ability to save ourselves. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 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 be faint. — Isaiah 40:29-31 Another of my favorites: Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my defense[a]; he has become my salvation.” — Isaiah 12:2 Another favorite: The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights. — Habakkuk 3:19 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’” — Mark 12:28-30 https://www.jesusfilm.org/blog/bible-verses-strength-courage
