He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.Isaiah 40:29-31
Every time I travel abroad, I feel drained spiritually. Am not sure that is the experience of everyone. From jet lag to spiritual lag, I have to do more to recharge everyday. Many may take that for granted but it means much to me. Inspiration is not casual, it’s everything to me. It’s not a feeling or a falling; its Grace for the race. When inspiration is lost everything crumbles and many wonder why. The helper grants strength for everyday living even on the move. Strength is not good enough, his might is a necessity for survival. Grace is the strength to run and not weary and walk and not faint. We are not strong, we are strenghtened. we are not mighty, The almighty is our strength. Superman died a long time ago, those that are strengthened end up as winners. Lord i need help! Is their cry.
“For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope:for a living dog is better than a dead lion. For the living know that they shall die:but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.“Ecclesiastes 9:4-5.
Living is everything, strengthened in God. If you could ignore the dog in the verse, the message will be clear. Don’t die spiritually because of your location. Live and not die. The strength to live is spirit given. Youthfulness is energy not strength; it fails in the day of battle. Just watch the news and see the great becoming weaklings. But those that were termed weak made strong by the hands of the almighty. Strength is the help to live and not die. The Holy spirit Quickens for that extraordinary strength. It’s spiritual oxygen for everyday living. Strength or stress. Receive strength to miss the stress today and forever. Strength is received, not generated.
“That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;”Ephesians 3:16.
