Tired.  Lack of energy or strength.  Do you ever deal with that?  If you’re human, you most certainly do.  It’s very easy to wear down with the daily grind and routine that we are involved with.  No matter how hard we try, we cannot face this all alone.  This is why the Lord gives us… Himself.

The Lord knows what we can and cannot accomplish on our own.  He knows this because He created us.  It was also never His intention for us to deal with life on our own.  This is why He instructed us to turn to Him instead, because He has all of the energy that we lack.

Isaiah 40:28-31 (NLT)

28 Have you never heard?
    Have you never understood?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of all the earth.
He never grows weak or weary.
    No one can measure the depths of his understanding.
29 He gives power to the weak
    and strength to the powerless.
30 Even youths will become weak and tired,
    and young men will fall in exhaustion.
31 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.

The second portion of scripture gives us the promise that if we trust in the Lord, we don’t need to worry, because we will find new strength.   We will be able to run and not grow weary.  We won’t grow weak or tired, nor will we fall from exhaustion.  We can do this simply trusting in the Lord, the Everlasting God.

This is great!  We can face each day tour with new hope, and new strength.  We can move on through life knowing that we have a confidant on whom we can truly depend.  If you’re weak in spirit, or in body, this scripture is for you.  Let it give you everlasting hope.  Wait upon the Everlasting God.

Questions to ask yourself…

  1. Do you often feel worn out or exhausted? 
  2. Have you tried on your own to deal with life’s grind?
  3. Did you know that God gave us such a specific promise about it?
