The Lord is My Strength

The Lord is My Strength

Exo 15:2-3 (KJV)

The LORD is my strength and song,

and he is become my salvation:

He is my God, and I will prepare Him an habitation;

my father's God, and I will exalt Him.

{3} The LORD is a man of war:

the LORD is his name.

Isaiah 40:31

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

2 Sam 22:31-35 (KJV)

As for God, his way is perfect;

the word of the LORD is tried:

he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.

{32} For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God?

{33} God is my strength and power:

And he maketh my way perfect.

{34} He maketh my feet like hinds' feet:

and setteth me upon my high places.

{35} He teacheth my hands to war;

so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.

Psa 18:1-3 (KJV)

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, the servant of the LORD,

who spake unto the LORD the words of this song

in the day that the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies,

and from the hand of Saul: And he said,

I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.

{2} The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;

my God, my strength, in whom I will trust;

my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

{3} I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised:

so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

Psa 19:7-14 (KJV)

The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul:

the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

{8} The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart:

the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

{9} The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever:

the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

{10} More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold:

sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

{11} Moreover by them is thy servant warned:

and in keeping of them there is great reward.

{12} Who can understand his errors?

cleanse thou me from secret faults.

{13} Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins;

let them not have dominion over me:

then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

{14} Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart,

be acceptable in thy sight,

O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Psa 22:19-28 (KJV)

But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength,

haste thee to help me.

{20} Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.

{21} Save me from the lion's mouth:

for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.

{22} I will declare thy name unto my brethren:

in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.

{23} Ye that fear the LORD, praise him;

all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.

{24} For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted;

neither hath he hid his face from him;

but when he cried unto him, he heard.

{25} My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation:

I will pay my vows before them that fear him.

{26} The meek shall eat and be satisfied:

they shall praise the LORD that seek him:

your heart shall live for ever.

{27} All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD:

and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.

{28} For the kingdom is the LORD'S:

and he is the governor among the nations.

Psa 31:12-24 (KJV)

I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind:

I am like a broken vessel.

{13} For I have heard the slander of many:

fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me,

they devised to take away my life.

{14} But I trusted in thee, O LORD:

I said, Thou art my God. {15} My times are in thy hand:

deliver me from the hand of mine enemies,

and from them that persecute me.

{16} Make thy face to shine upon thy servant:

save me for thy mercies' sake.

{17} Let me not be ashamed, O LORD; for I have called upon thee:

let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave.

{18} Let the lying lips be put to silence;

which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.

{19} Oh how great is thy goodness,

which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee;

which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!

{20} Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man:

thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.

{21} Blessed be the LORD:

for he hath showed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.

{22} For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes:

nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee. {23} O love the LORD, all ye his saints:

for the LORD preserveth the faithful,

and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.

{24} Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart,

all ye that hope in the LORD.

Phil 1:18-21 (KJV)

What then? notwithstanding, every way,

whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached;

and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.

{19} For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer,

and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,

{20} According to my earnest expectation and my hope,

that in nothing I shall be ashamed,

but that with all boldness, as always,

so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body,

whether it be by life, or by death.

{21} For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

2 Cor 12:7-10 (KJV)

And lest I should be exalted above measure

through the abundance of the revelations,

there was given to me a thorn in the flesh,

the messenger of Satan to buffet me,

lest I should be exalted above measure.

{8} For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.

{9} And he said unto me,

My grace is sufficient for thee:

for my strength is made perfect in weakness.

Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities,

that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

{10} Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities,

in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake:

for when I am weak, then am I strong.
