Hello everyone it’s me Jb.
So last week it was ‘Live at Peace’, and so how did you do?? Did you put this into practice?
Well this week I had planned one verse and then I was reading something and saw this verse and felt that this needed to be the next one.
“But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
Live in Strength
Now this one is going to be a bit harder for me, because even though I usually have a lot of strength, I feel like I’m lacking in this department lately. Now I would like to blame it on the crazy Texas weather we are having right now and that it has me out of it, but I know it’s more than that. So now let’s look at this verse, but first lets take a look to the build up.
“He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion.”But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:29-30 NLT
This shows us that this will happen to all of no matter how young we are. Because we are only human and we can’t go it on our own. But we want to, we want to find strength in ourselves and do things on our own because I can! But the truth is we can’t and we weren’t meant to. But if we trust in the Lord we will find new strength. That means that in our weakest moments we can trust in God and find our strength! But we don’t always do this like we should. And by we I mean me. I get this thought in my head that I can do this on my own. That I can do this in my own strength, but God is telling me and you. That we don’t have to – all we have to do is trust in him and he will give us strength. Because we CAN’T always do it on our own. And if you think you can, stop fooling yourself because somewhere in your life something is lacking whether it is relationships, health, or just your own well being. If you are just drawing on your own strength and think that you’ve got it all you have done is mastered the art of illusion to yourself.
Now hear me because I say it this with love. I say this because I’ve been guilty of this, but this is not a place you want to stay in. This is not the way you want your life to be. But it’s hard to think we aren’t strong enough, but news flash we aren’t. So let’s draw on His strength.
So we will add strength, to our list. As we Live at Peace and now in Strength. This is going to be a hard one to add, but we can do this. If during this process you have a story of how living out these verses have changed something in your life, send me a message or comment in the notes. I would love to hear your story. So now let’s practice living in Strength. See you next week.
