Psalm 34:2, 22 My soul makes its boast in the Lord; let the humble hear and be glad. The Lord redeems the life of his servants; none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.

Joel 3:10b let the weakling say, ‘I am a warrior.’

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 but he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.’ So, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities for the sake of Christ; for whenever I am weak, then I am strong.
