Find New Strength!

The holy God asks, "Who compares with me? Is anyone my equal?"   Look at the evening sky! Who created the stars? Who gave them each a name? Who leads them like an army? The LORD is so powerful that none of the stars are ever missing.   You people of Israel, say, "God pays no attention to us! He doesn't care if we are treated unjustly." But how can you say that?   Don't you know? Haven't you heard? The LORD is the eternal God, Creator of the earth. He never gets weary or tired; his wisdom cannot be measured.   The LORD gives strength to those who are weary.   Even young people get tired, then stumble and fall.   But those who trust the LORD will find new strength. They will be strong like eagles soaring upward on wings; they will walk and run without getting tired.

Isaiah 40: 25 - 31

When I was younger I was always amazed at the energy of a 2 year old child.  Now I am amazed at the strength and stamina of a 42 year old man!  Getting old is certainly a matter of getting weaker in physical strength, but hopefully stronger in spiritual power through the Holy Spirit!

These verses clearly state the promise that when a man or woman trusts God, he or she will find NEW STRENGTH!  That new strength will enable you to soar with eagles as well as walking and running without getting tired!

Just imagine what you could accomplish if your body never got tired, no matter how much you worked!  This promise is not about never getting physically tired, but about never getting tired of obeying the Voice of God!  When you trust in God and obey His every Word, you will find NEW STRENGTH every day!

“Lord Jesus, help me to trust in You today so that I may find the NEW STRENGTH that only comes from trusting You!  Praise Your Holy Name now and forever.  Amen.”
