December 3, The wings of HOPE

   Isaiah 40: 28-31   “Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.  He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.  He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.  Even youths grow tired and weary and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”       (NIV)

Promise:  God promises that placing my hope in Him will result in renewed strength, the ability to soar above my problems and to be able to endure the path of my life without growing weak or fainthearted.

Why is it important to know this promise?

God’s character is revealed:  His strength, sovereignty, omnipotence, comfort, guidance, salvation, caring and his eternality.

Promise provides me with:  courage, endurance, knowledge that God is greater than any circumstance I face, guidance in life, strength to live each day for Him, comfort and HOPE.

I love this image that God will help me to soar above the problems and stresses of life that would pull me down.  He reminds me that his endurance is eternal and everlasting.  I don’t need to worry that God will run out of energy  or grow weary of helping me.  He wants me to live with hope in Him knowing that he cares for me.  As you go though your day, keep the image of God enfolding you in his arms and lifting you above all your earthy concerns.  Place your HOPE in Him and know his care today!

Blessings,

Linda
