New Strength

Isaiah 40

Read this chapter for yourself! Amazing beautiful words of reminders of who God is...

Some of my favorites from today's reading are ~
Look up into the heavens. Who created all the stars? He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by its name. Because of his great power and incomparable strength, not a single one is missing.

Do you know that in our milky way galaxy alone we have over 200 billion stars? Do you know that we have over 100 billion to 1 trillion galaxies? Which they estimate that with all the galaxies there are over 10 sextillion or 1 septillion stars? God calls each one of them by name! Ponder that a moment!
God is soooooo Big and we will never ever be able to grasp just how MIGHTY HE TRULY IS!

Another favorite is verse 28-29 ~ 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.

Verse 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.
A few eagle facts to ponder the wing spans average 72 to 90". Eagles are able to fly up to 10000' in altitude and up to a speed of 35 mph! Okay, on days you don't know how you will get it done remember this verse. God gives you the strength to accomplish the unthinkable, the incomprehensible, but you are unable to do this on your own! Only God will give you this new strength to accomplish without growing weary! Feeling burnout? Perhaps you aren't allowing God the privilege of handling it for you! Trust in God and see what all will be accomplished!

In the future, when you feel weary, tired, powerless turn to Isaiah 40 and be reminded of exactly who GOD IS ~ The Creator, The Sovereign LORD, The HOLY ONE and Our Father who loves each of us dearly and wants to be a part of our life facing each challenge, each joy, each wound providing the love and strength to get through each one together!

Sweet blessings,
