Today Reminder – 16 July 2015 (Day 7 – Forward)

A reminder for today
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. (Isaiah 40:29-31)

I feel tired today. This week has been exhausting and I can feel how the burdens of what lay ahead weights heavy on me. I can see it in my sleeping patterns, because my mind doesn’t shut down at night. Have you ever felt that you just don’t want to get up in the morning and your whole body feels tired and exhausted? It feels as if someone stole your smile as you worry how you will get through this. Then there is the mental exhaustion as you fight in your mind with all the outcomes that might happen and what could go wrong.

I love Isaiah 40. We are reminded again how important it is to trust in the Lord. Everyone will become weak and tired, but those who trust the in the Lord will find new strength. They will run and never grow weary. This is so important for us to remember.

You see the enemy want us to think we cannot do it; they want us to give up. This matches yesterday’s post so nicely. If our perspective is correct and we place our trust in the Lord we will soar high on wings like eagles.

Today we do not take a step forward. Today we run and we will not get weary. We will walk and never faint. We will soar high above our worries on the wings of the Holy Spirit. Today we take back our happiness and destroy the enemy at the gates.

My trust is in you Lord. I am invincible!

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
