Lord Give Me Strength! Top 100 Bible Verses to Hold You High

What are the best verses in God’s scripture for the Lord to give me strength? We always try to gain strength from ourselves, but we need to rely on God for our ultimate strength. When things get tough and things get going, that’s when we reach out to God and Christ and ask the Lord to give us strength. Even if God wants to grant us strength, we cannot do so if our hearts are not open to His voice and we do not cry out to Him earnest, “Lord Give Me Strength!”

What does it mean to rely on someone? It means to “be dependent” on something or someone else. People may fail us, and the world may fail us, but God will never do so. As we are human, we get tired and exhausted, especially when encountering hardships that push us out of our comfort zones. During this point in our life, the best rest that we can find is within God’s hands, for there is no greater source of strength than His. 

Here are some verses that will remind you how great His promises and plans are for you:
