In a recent conversation with a friend, I was explaining how tired I am [mentally, physically] and how gaining more strength would benefit all involved. I was reminded it’s not more strength I need but rather a renewed strength. this renewed strength is not my own but His strength within.
when faced with extreme situations or even our everyday mundane duties, we don’t need more strength to conquer, we need His strength (a renewing of what He’s already given us) to prevail!
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 40:31 NIV)
