The Word for the day is found in Isaiah 40: 28-31.
28 Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the LORD,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.
29 He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,
31 But those who wait on 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. (NKJV)
28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint. (NIV)
If ever a time that many Christians feel powerless and weak it is today. It seems that the world and our country are spinning out of control.
Everything that we have put our trust in the past is failing. So where do we go to from here?
We go to the one who never faints or is weary. He has promised you that he will give you his strength and cause you to be an overcomer in Christ Jesus. The same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead will also quicken your mortal bodies.
Wait on the Lord in prayer and let him strength you. He has an answer for ever situation, if you will but learn to lean on his power not your own strength.
In the flesh we can do nothing, but in the spirit we can do all things.
Renew your strength through prayer, and study of the Word.
Then stand fast in what God promises and do not waver.
The answer will come if you stay steadfast in faith.
Thanks for the reminder that we are to rest in Him because He is our strength.
