“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. 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.” Isaiah 40:28-31 (ESV)
Are you heading into this week just flat out exhausted? Is there some great weight upon you that you just can’t seem to lift? Maybe there is something in your life that you have been dealing with for some time, and there seems to be no end in sight. Have no fear, for our God does not grow weary.
He knows exactly what you’re going through. Even though it may not be time to release you from this trial, He will give you strength to endure. If we try to handle these life moments on our own we grow weary and collapse under the pressure. Scripture says even the youth will faint, and young men fall exhausted. So what do we do?
We wait upon the Lord. We seek His face every moment of every day and He will lift us up. I know how hard this is to do in our fast food, 4G society. It is in our nature to look for instant relief. We seek to find the instant solution and why not? No one wants to suffer.
God will renew your strength until it is time for this trial to be over. In Him you will not fall, you will not grow weary. Will you still feel the pain of your journey? Yes. Will it still seem like the world is crashing in on you, it might, but in the arms of Jesus you will be held safe and strong until this storm passes.
Let us praise God! Let us sing songs glorifying His wonderful name! Even in your storm, let us sing Hallelujah, for He is with you. He is supporting you, and you know that your prayers will be answered in His time. The storm will not last forever, but the Love God has for you will last for all eternity. So when this storm does pass, His love will be right there showering down on you, blessings in abundance!
Thank You Jesus! Hallelujah! We Love you Lord! Thank You Jesus! Praise God! Amen
Question: Are you in the middle of a trial, or a storm of life that seems to have no end in sight? Is there something holding you back from letting Jesus be your life raft?
