Strength is needed in every human endeavor. Physics defines strength to be the ability to withstand an applied stress or load without structural failure.
Job says we are all born weak and helpless, and we lead the same short, troubled life (Job 14:1 GNT). If we are born weak and helpless, it therefore means that we lack the ability to withstand the applied stress or load of adversities without structural failure. Hence the Bible says if we faint in the day of adversity, our strength is small (Proverbs 24:10).
For we not to faint, we need to know and recognize that the Lord, the everlasting God who created the ends of the earth, not only does He not grow tired or weary (Isaiah 40:28), but also upholds all His own who are falling and raises up all those who are bowing down under stress or pressure of adversity (Psalm 145:14). He does this by giving them strength and increasing their power (Isaiah 40:29).
If the youths who are supposedly strong and vibrant grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall (Psalm 40:30-31), there is the need for us to hope in the Lord for our strength to be renewed.
Divine strength makes us soar on wings like eagles; run and not grow weary and walk and not faint (Isaiah 40:31). Remember also, that if our ministration is to be effective and glorify God, we need to do it with the strength that God provides (1 Peter 4:11b), for by strength shall no man prevail (1 Samuel 2:9b).
