Promised Strength


"He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might he increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it ti abound]. Even youth shall faint and be weary, and [selected] young men shall feebly stumble and fall exhausted; But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired " (Isaiah 40:29-31, Amplified).

Have you ever felt like throwing up your hands and calling it quits?  Feeling so weary and weaken from the constant battles and struggles in life, you wonder and ask what's the point of trying anymore if nothing seems to change? 

Well, you are not alone, we all experience times when we feel to weak or weary to go on.  Isaiah tells us that God gives strength to those who are weak, because His power and strength never weakens.  We can call on Him for help in our hour of need.  His strength is our source of strength.  When we exchange our strength for His, we become renewed and filled with power which helps us to rise above life's challenges and difficulties.

When you feel as though all life is crushing you and cannot go another step, remember you can call upon the Lord to renew your strength.  He will enable you to walk and not faint.
