On this beautiful new day, this gift from God, we seek him first and we are reminded of His truth from His word to guide us through our day. If you are walking through a tough season, it is awesome to remember this scripture from Isaiah:
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Isaiah 40:29
This passage of scripture is a great scripture to meditate on during difficult seasons of life. God will give us His strength when we are weary. Oftentimes, when we are facing difficulty, it’s easy to become weary in our minds and emotions. Trying to figure it all out in our own strength can be exhausting. But we weren’t meant to try to figure everything out, we were meant to trust God. We were meant to call on Him and let Him be the hero of our story!
The Bible says here in Isaiah that when we cry out to the Lord He will give us strength when we are weary and increase our power when we feel weak. When we feel weak and our strength is depleted, and we need more energy and power to run our race, we know who to turn to. No matter what is going on in our lives today, God is greater than any obstacle or difficulty we may be facing. When we need strength to overcome a challenge in our life and His power to stand strong in the midst of a storm we must " Call on Him and He will hear us". As we open our hearts, it is by faith we Receive His strength ! He gives us strength of mind, strength of body, strength of spirit, and all the power we need to rise above our circumstances and overcome them!
We cannot face our battles on our own. We do not possess the strength that we need, but we know the One Who does. How liberating to trust in His promises and to cease from the pressure and the striving that wear us out and break us down. We can rest in His strength and fight in His power!
When we cry out to Him, He makes us bold in the strength of our souls (Psalm 138:3). He arms us with strength for the battle and subdues those who would rise up against us (Psalm 18:39). When our courage fails, He strengthens our hearts (Psalm 27:14). He strengthens our faith when we might otherwise waver at His promises (Romans 4:20). He is our strength, song, and salvation (Exodus 15:2). We can do all things through Christ Who gives us strength (Philippians 4:13).
Even when we are burdened beyond measure (II Corinthians 1:8), His strength is made perfect in our weaknesses (II Corinthians 12:9). He alone is the secret of our strength.
