The crack in my bones
The shattering of my veins
The hurricane in my soul
Will soon give way...
Give way to new strengths.
Today’s Scripture: Isaiah 40: 31
As a young one, have you ever been told by an older person, “Well, you’re young. You shouldn’t be tired”? Yes, you probably have and maybe you were annoyed at this statement because you truly felt weak in your body or in your soul, about a particular situation and I totally understand. Getting tired is a very easy thing to do. In fact, you do not need any qualifications to know what it means to grow weary and to lack strength.
In Isaiah 40, the Bible says that “even youths will become weak and tired and young men will fall in exhaustion.” Just look at that! The Bible totally acknowledges your weaknesses. The striking thing, however, is in verse 31. it says, “But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength…” What does that mean to you and what does it signify?
Finding new strength means there is an old strength or something of the sort. Clearly, we are told that the key to finding this new strength is by trusting in the Lord. This new strength is what keeps us up when we could actually be on the ground. It’s what keeps breath in your nostrils so you can keep hope alive. It’s what makes you fly when you could be breaking down, giving up or fainting. And it all comes from trusting in the Lord our God.
Prayer Point: Lord, I choose to trust you over and over, and may the new strength that comes from trusting you overshadow me in Jesus name.
