Renewed Strength

Encouragement for your daily walk with God

There is a natural by-product of overextended schedules and endless responsibilities; it’s called exhaustion. Sometimes we exacerbate the problem by trying to cram even more in our busy lives by multitasking, which often leaves us emotionally and physically fatigued. 

But the Lord has a better idea. He has a radically different approach that offers strength and stamina. It’s called “waiting on the Lord.” Those who do it, find a supernatural spring to their step, which surpasses the natural strength and endurance of the young. No, I’m not joking with you about this. Access to divine power is achieved as we move slower, not faster—stopping to worship God, seek His direction, and ask for His strength to accomplish any task at hand. The best example I can think of is that He is like the air that supports the soaring eagle.

So the next time you find yourself at the point of exhaustion, STOP and take time to turn your attention to the Lord. Walk with Him at His pace. Don’t try to outrun Him. He offers renewed strength to those who walk obediently in His will.

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. 29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 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.  Isaiah 40:28-31
