Isaiah 40:29 “The Lord gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.”
1 Corinthians 1:25 “For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.”
In life, we all get tired, we at times are frankly worn-out. We can fill drained, weak, not only physically but many times it’s mentally and spiritually that is the hardest for us. What do we do? What can we do?
“Have we not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, His understanding can no one fathom.” He not only understands but He gives and Renews Strength when we Hope in the Lord. As a gift, “He gives strength and increases power”.
Consider the context of Isaiah 40:29. Beginning in verse 28; the inspired writer reminds us and refreshes us by letting us know Who God is, the everlasting Creator Who does not grow tired, meaning He knows and understands everything, then in verses 29-32 reveals the promise.
28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
A promise from the Lord Jesus Christ comes from Matthew 11:28-29 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
We need to go to our Heavenly Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ, through His mighty Spirit our Advocate, with our hope in God and ask for strength, rest, and help during time of need.
Let us pray:
Our God, our Creator, Lord of All, Who has Power and Might, Grace and Mercy, and Love for Your people. You are Holy, Perfect and Full of Compassion, Kindness and Strength.
Give us strength and rest in times of need, for You are an ever present help at all times.
Watch over us, protect us, and guide us.
Thank You for All You do, and All that You are.
We ask You watch over the people of Florida and anyone who can potentially be impacted by the coming storms, we ask their safety for people and property, and for animals and pets, all your Creation. Bring comfort, hope and strength, and serve as their Protector: stop, tame, or alter the storms as You will. Let everyone know your grace and mercy and that Salvation and Redemption of everything and everyone comes from You The Lord.
In the Power and Hope of our Lord Jesus Christ through Your Holy Spirit,
