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

Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord: “I will sing to the Lord, for he is highly exalted. Both horse and driver he has hurled into the sea. “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 ESV
The Israelites just saw the mighty hand of God swallow up their enemies in the sea and allowed them to walk through on dry land.

Asaph began this psalm with “But as for me my feet almost slipped.” He finished it was But as for me , God’s presence is my good. You have to ask, what happened from verses 2-28? He encountered God in worship. In the presence of God he found truth hope and strength that he needed.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Ephesians 6:10
This verse is from Ephesians 6, where is talks about the armor Christ that we should put on daily. It is also often referring to spiritual warfare (Did an episode on this chapter back in 2019.

Keep this in mind and it will strengthen you as you stand victorious through your battles.
Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually! – 1 Chronicles 16:11
