The Savior is never weary. He strengthens us.

Isaiah 40:28–31

28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland said:

“I have personally known in my own life the realization of the promise ‘that the everlasting God, . . . the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is [he] weary.’ I am a witness that ‘he giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength’ (Isaiah 40:28–29).

“I know that in times of fear or fatigue, ‘they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint’ (Isaiah 40:31).

“We receive the gift of such majestic might and sanctifying renewal through the redeeming grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. He has overcome the world, and if we will take upon us His name and ‘walk in His paths’ and keep our covenants with Him, we shall, ere long, have peace. Such a reward is not only possible; it is certain.

“‘For the mountains shall depart and the hills be removed, but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee’ (3 Nephi 22:10).”
