10 Scriptures for strength

Beloved, I know. The weariness is set deep in your soul, your heart echoing with the hurt on every beat and you think this is it, that this is where it needs to stop because you cannot take any more. Know this, my friend — there is purpose to all of this. You may not be seeing it right now, not in the depths of your distress and in the midst of the mess. But the goodness of God endures, His heart towards us is only good. There is purpose in the deepest pain, there is meaning in the mundane and in the confusion. So hold on, beloved — keep holding on. Even when we are faithless, our God remains faithful and He will come through for us. So keep holding on, for one more day. Keep holding on, for this season, too, will pass and everything will be alright.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 — “Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which arenot seen are eternal.”

Psalm 119:112  “You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your word.”

1 Peter 1:6-7 — “In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”

Romans 8:28 — “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

James 1:2-4 — “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.”

Isaiah 40:29-31 — “He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”

1 Peter 5:10 — “But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.”

Deuteronomy 8:2-3 — “And you shall remember that the Lord your God led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not. So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.”

Isaiah 40:9-10 — “You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called from its farthest regions, and said to you, ‘You are My servant, I have chosen you and have not cast you away: Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’”

Psalm 62:8 — “Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.”
