In Proverbs 8:14 wisdom says, "... I have strength."
The word for strength or power in this verse is the Hebrew word geburah. It is Strong's Concordance number H1369 meaning force, valor, victory, bravery, mighty deeds. It comes from the word gibbour which is Strong's Concordance number H1368 meaning powerful, warrior, tyrant, champion, chief, mighty hunter. A deeper root word is Strong Concordance number H1396 gabar which means to be strong, to prevail, to be great.
The Ancient Hebrew Analysis: to lift up the family in order to secure what the chief has revealed. Power or strength is not only having the ability to lift up but also to carry what you have lifted.
This reminds me of Yahusha. Because He carries us all. And we also carry burdens for one another.
Ways We Carry Loads:
Praying and Interceding for others
Being Mothers and Fathers to the orphans
Providing for the needy in the community
Being functional wives and husbands
Doing whatever work Yahuah has commissioned us to do
The strength to carry a load that comes from Yahuah. But we also most be sure it is something that He has commissioned us to do. Every load isn't ours to carry that's why mean of us our crushed. He will never put more on us than we can bear but we are the ones that keep adding the weight.
Thing We shouldn't be carrying:
Shame and Condemnation for past sins
Baggage from old relationships
Trauma from our childhood
The burdens of those who have rejected the ways of Yahuah and Yahusha
"Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O Yah, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come." Psalm 71:18
Prayer Point: Pray for increased faith in Yahusha's strength.
Reflection: What are the loads that I am carrying that Yahuah hasn't commissioned me to carry?
