Power to the faint and weary

On this day, when I am so exhausted and weary, I find it serendipitous to stumble upon a couple of scriptures that speak directly to me in my current circumstances. I am working so hard on this web site so that I will have a useful and professional platform for communicating what the Father has shown me in the last few years.

Yeshayah (Isaiah) 40:29 TS2009, He gives power to the faint, and to those who have no might He increases strength.

Qorintiyim Bĕt (2 Corinthians) 12:9 TS2009, And He said to me, “My favour is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, then, I shall rather boast in my weaknesses, so that the power of Messiah rests on me.

The Amplified Bible Classic Edition has a bit of insight:

Isaiah 40:29 AMPC, He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound]. [II Cor. 12:9.]

2 Corinthians 12:9 AMPC, But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!
