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 40:29 NIRV
God helps us learn to TRUST. HE covers us with grace and reminds us HE is our HELP in time of need. When we cannot clearly see though worry and doubt, He holds us even tighter. He opens our eyes so we will recognize the power of His love.
No matter what we experience in our lives, we can call on Jesus to lift us from the ashes and provide glimpses of HOPE; timely reminders HE IS WITH US as we’re held in the arms of care. He helps us find refuge and remember why we are not alone.
As we have discovered, life will create hardships. We will stumble and fall and wonder how we will be able to live without worry. But if we remain faithful, God will show us. When the future is unclear, He will grow our faith and help us BELIEVE He will handle EVERY single thing.
The Bible says, “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious hand.” Isaiah 41: 10 NLT These words of truth are a promise! When troubles come, we must remember God is with us! He will give us HOPE for the future as we continue to BELIEVE He WILL handle our days.
2 Corinthians 12:8-10 says, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” God is fighting our battles. He will prepare us for what’s to come. “We mustn’t be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God!” He will increase our strength and help us see how He guides and provides. He will ALWAYS take care of those He loves. He WILL give us PEACE even if we forget where to find it.
He is GOD! We must pray for His protection and pray for those who are in harms way. God will hear our prayers. When doubt needs to be reminded there is STRENGTH within, He will help us remember HE will be our shield of safety EVERY single day.
Dear God, thank you for humbling our hearts so we will recognize the need for Your holiness. We will TRUST You all of our days and gratefully appreciate how You choose to fight our battles. Please protect those who are in harms way. Give them STRENGTH to endure and cover them with mercy and grace. Your presence brings PEACE to our hearts even when we forget where to find it. Open our eyes for glimpses of good and help us focus on Jesus. We will faithfully follow Him and remember we're not alone. Thank you for helping us through the tragedies of life. They bring us so much closer to YOU. Amen
