He Renews our Strength
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God,
the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become
weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. He gives
strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might He increases
power. Though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young
men stumble badly, yet those who wait for the LORD will gain
new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will
run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.
Isaiah 40:28-31 NASB
When we genuinely lift our hearts and prayers to God, He renews our strength. Are you almost too weary to lift your head? Then bow it. Offer your concerns and your fears to your Father in heaven. He is always at your side, offering His love and His strength.
Are you troubled or anxious? Take your anxieties to God in prayer. Are you weak or worried? Delve deeply into God's Holy Word and sense His presence in the quiet moments of the day. Are you spiritually exhausted? Call upon fellow believers to support you, and call upon Christ to renew your spirit and your life. Your Savior will never let you down. To the contrary, He will always lift you up if you ask Him to. So what, dear friend, are you waiting for?
God is not running an antique shop! He is making all things new!
God specializes in taking bruised, soiled, broken, guilty, and miserable vessels and making them whole, forgiven, and useful again.
The amazing thing about Jesus is that He doesn't just patch up our lives, He gives us a brand new sheet, a clean slate to start over, all new.
Heavenly Father, sometimes I am troubled, and sometimes I grow weary. When I am weak, Lord, give me strength. When I am discouraged, renew me. When I am fearful, let me feel Your healing touch. Let me always trust in Your promises, Lord, and let me draw strength from those promises and from Your unending love. Amen
