Weekend Whispers :: Isaiah 40:28-31

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. 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. NLT

Life is exhausting. It’s stressful. It’s complicated.

As we live each day, good and bad hit us. Both the good and bad bring along their own complications and stresses.

When we come across new beginnings, we can either let ourselves become overwhelmed and crash OR we can embrace life and all that comes with it.

When I begin to feel overwhelmed, I remember the Bible passage above.

God is everlasting and doesn’t get tired. He never forgets us and never leaves us. When we turn to Him, He is always faithful.

He might not take everything away – what would we learn of the lessons He’s trying to teach if He constantly made those lessons disappear from our lives? – BUT we can know that He gives us strength and walks with us through it all.

Prayer: Thank You, God, for always being here for me. Please help me to remember that. Life isn’t always easy and even the good can become overwhelming, but knowing You are with me helps me get through. Please help me remember Your power and love. Amen.
