Isaiah 40:28-31 Voice; Don’t you know? Haven’t you heard? The Eternal, the Everlasting God, The Creator of the whole world, never gets tired or weary. His wisdom is beyond understanding. God strengthens the weary and gives vitality to those worn down by age and care. Young people will get tired; strapping young men will stumble and fall. But those who trust in the Eternal One will regain their strength. They will soar on wings as eagles. They will run—never winded, never weary. They will walk—never tired, never faint.
I rolled over to look at the clock this morning and it was early, even for me, but I heard an invitation to come and sit with the Savior. There was no way I was going back to sleep when I could spend time with the one who knows me, hears me and understands me. What a gift He is to me. I quickly made my coffee and protein drinks for Walt and I, then came out to my office and fired up the computer, logged onto biblegateway.com and this verse came to mind. I pulled it up and went through reading it in various translations but somehow, felt this one was perfect.
“God strengthens the weary and gives vitality to those worn down by age and care.” Yeah, that’s me. I may be worn down by age and care, but I cast my care on Him because He cares for me and why should I carry something I was never meant to? So I will run! Never winded, never weary! I will walk and never tire or faint.
Spending time with Jesus is the best way to feel the wind beneath my wings as I soar to dizzying heights with Him. To see from His vantage point where all the things I face are so very small. I say about my Lord, He is my place of safety, a fort to me, my God! I trust in Him. All knowing, all wise, problem solver, provider, visionary, peace, strength, love and grace. I can’t imagine my life without Him, not for one day or one moment.
Father, you are my past, my present and my future, the greatest gift I’ve ever received is You. To have intimate fellowship with you each and everyday is something I look forward to so much. You know what is on my mind and in my heart without me mentioning a word. You’ve already gone ahead and made provision for every need I will ever have. You are all knowing and all powerful. Every opposition must bow to you and the greatness of your Name. When I think of you, my heart flutters like a teenage crush. I am undone by the depths of Your great love. Thank you for this day and for the plans that are unfolding for me and my children. It’s with a grateful heart I surrender it all in Jesus’ Name. Amen
