Weakness is defined medically as a decrease in muscular strength. Many individuals mistake weakness for exhaustion, weariness, a lack of energy, or fatigue, which is not exactly right.

Body pains aren’t just the only way to get wearied. Emotional traumas are caused by maybe the loss of a loved one, unemployment, a demonic attack, or an accident.


Bible Verses on Weariness

Various experimenters have attempted to create an average on which to base observations on the strength of a man; however, many allowances must be made for climate, temperature, diet, age, and other uncontrollable factors.

However, it has been discovered that the best approach to obtaining a genuine picture of men’s power is to monitor the average effect generated by a laborer who maintains his exertions for several consecutive days.


Weary denotes exhaustion in vigor or freshness power of feeling or accomplishing a certain activity.

Galatians 6:9

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.


Galatians 6:9 ESV

Galatians 6_9 ESV


The Amplified Bible reads, “Let us not become weary or become discouraged…,” while The Message Bible gives this: “So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. If we don’t give up or stop, we will harvest a good crop at the correct moment.”Be not tired of doing good.

We are God’s hands and feet on Earth, meant to help and build people up. In reality, the Lord wants us to seek out opportunities to express His love to both fellow Christians and those we encounter on a daily basis.

The harvest is the favorable outcome of our good acts.
And Jesus Himself reveals the wonderful idea that this harvest occurs within others and ourselves.

What Does God say about Weariness?

The causes are typically evident, such as too many late nights, long hours at work, or a newborn keeping you up at night.

However, prolonged fatigue or exhaustion is not typical. It can have an impact on your capacity to go forward and enjoy life.

What does God say about being tired?

Matthew 11:28 

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.-

Matthew 11:28 ESV

Matthew 11_28 ESV

As stated in the Bible, Jesus can provide you rest if you’re fatigued and straining. The journey to God the Father is described in this way, yet it is not one of hardship and hard labor.
Following Jesus relieves us of the burden of our own sin since He has already completed that task, because I have come that you may have life, and have it abundantly.
All we have to do is place our hope, confidence, and trust in Jesus.

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope

Jeremiah 29:11 ESV

Jeremiah 29_11 ESV

God knows what He is thinking about you, and He wishes for a good conclusion for you.

That is what God’s Word says will happen. You, like Moses, may walk triumphantly. He was 120 years old, yet neither his vision nor his inherent strength had diminished.

He physically climbed a mountain on the day he went home to be with the Lord.

Isaiah 40:28

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.

Isaiah 40:28 ESV

Isaiah 40_28 ESV

Israel continued to rebel against their God through unbelief, believing in their folly that God did not witness their evil.
As a result, Isaiah penned over 40 chapters of rebuke for their disbelief, asking, “Do you not know? Did you not hear?
The LORD, the Creator of the ends of the world, the Everlasting God, does not get tired or weary. His comprehension is impenetrable.
We wander from the Lord or murmur against Him in unbelief, or we can simply become so familiar with the words of Scripture that we forget Who our everlasting, omniscient, gracious Creator God is, and what He is truly capable of, and that He is not tired of being there for us according to His will.

Isaiah 40:31

But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40:31 ESV

Isaiah 40_31 ESV

The Bible teaches us that knowing God is the only true life. There are two paths: walk with Christ or walk away from him.

Those who are in Christ have the privilege of addressing God as the Father. They have the luxury of creating an eternal fortune in heaven.

The righteous road comprises patience and waiting for Christ’s future grandeur to be revealed, but it also includes the promise of power to face difficulties and temptations here and now, and to conduct virtuous deeds to glorify the Lord who purchased us.

It also tells us that the only way to genuinely know God is via Christ. The words here are for individuals who know or want to know Christ.

Bible Verses for the Weary and Tired

Physical reasons for weariness are far less prevalent than psychological factors.

The majority of psychological factors result in insufficient sleep or insomnia, both of which produce fatigue throughout the day. Anxiety, despair, and emotional trauma are all examples of such tiredness.

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16 ESV

The Merriam-webster dictionary defines love as strong affection for another arising from kinship or personal ties. a warm attachment, enthusiasm, or devotion.

The grace of agape love is the most precious of all God’s spiritual gifts. All other gifts of the Spirit that Christians may employ are meaningless and pointless unless they are motivated by love.

The Bible mentions faith, hope, and love, but claims that love is the most important. love is able to sustain.

If you’ve ever been hospitalized, you’d realize that at a point in life, it is not money or fame that we need but love.

Isaiah 41:10

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:10 ESV

According to Bible scholars, there are 365 ‘fear nots’ throughout the Bible. This translates to one ‘fear not’ every day. When it appears that all hope is lost, remember that Christ is the author and finisher of our faith. God is well acquainted with us. He is aware of our concerns and fears. He recognizes our humanity. God, on the other hand, regularly urges us not to be scared. Being fearless is trusting God rather than believing that our current circumstances are greater than God.

Joshua 1:9 KJV

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.-

Joshua 1:9 KJV

God’s word enhanced Joshua’s status as God’s chosen leader. Although God’s pledge to be with Joshua was special to him, the overall concept still holds true today.

First and foremost, God expects His believers to live bold, fearless lives. But what bravado? Because God says we should not be afraid.

The focus of the promise in this scripture was Joshua’s leadership of the Israelites when he led them into the Promised Land following Moses’ death.

Joshua was given the daunting duty of leading the entire people into unknown terrain.

Bible Verses for the Weary and Broken-Hearted

God says He will wipe away every tear from our eyes, and there will be no more death, grief, crying, or suffering since the previous things have gone away.

Psalm 34: 19-20

Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.

Psalm 34: 19-20 KJV

We may triumph over our suffering if we let Christ into every area of our lives at every stage, knowing full well that He understands our anguish.

When we are in pain, we feel lonely, which is a devastating aspect of pain. During Jesus’ day, sickness and suffering were widely seen as retribution for sin.

In other words, the victims “deserved it,” or perhaps their parents did. Yes, some pain is caused by humans. However, the situation of the blind man was unique.

2 Timothy 1:7

For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.-

2 Timothy 1:7 ESV

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus. Timothy recognized Paul’s hesitancy, and Paul recognized Timothy’s dread.

During his own confinement in a Roman cell, the apostle Paul was able to reassure His terrified laborer in Christ, Timothy, by reminding him (and us) that God “has not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but of power; of love; of a sound mind and godly discernment.”

God wanted Timothy to know that this fear wasn’t from the God he served; he needed to know that God has not given us a spirit of fear.

We all face situations where we feel weary. Paul is saying we should be strong for we are made of standard.

Confess your Weariness to the Lord

we overcome weariness- weakness by confessing to the Lord.

The Bible says He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.

Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted, but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Matthew 11:28

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 11:28 ESV

When Jesus said I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

He meant that He’s the full package. Following Jesus relieves us of the burden of our own sin (weakness) since He has already completed that task, because I have come that you may have life, and have it abundantly.

All we have to do is place our hope, confidence, and trust in Jesus.

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard our hearts and our minds in Christ Jesus. Amen!

Bible Stories about Weariness

The prayer that our faith should not fail us is quite an important prayer point. Being humans and occupying the earth means definitely trouble will come, and we could grow weary.

As the Bible declares We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.

Isaiah 40:28-31

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary…..-

Isaiah 40:28-31 ESV

God’s people were tired. They were disheartened and overwhelmed since they had been beaten by other people, exiled from their homes, and were now foreigners and exiles in a foreign place – Babylon.

They also knew, because they had heard, that God still had a plan for them as a people. And that God had vowed to return them to their homeland, Jerusalem. Is God truly capable of carrying it out?

They had been enslaved by the most powerful empire of their time and were at the mercy of its monarch. How would they ever be able to leave and return home?

prophet Isaiah assures them that the Lord will empower them. 
They should “wait for the Lord” rather than “faint” or “become tired” in their terrible circumstance. 
Waiting for the Lord is having an expecting and confident faith in God and his promises, believing that God has heard us, understands our predicament, and will come through.
