Power to the Weak

Grace Law

READ : Isaiah 40:21-31

Sometimes we think that if only we had power we would have everything. The dictionary defines power as a position of authority; ability to act; physical might, or force of energy used to do work. What definition would best suit your need? What kind of power would help you?

The fictitious Superman has power because he’s a man of steel and strength, but he’s not real. Some men and women are naturally strong, but many are weak, tired and worn out both physically and mentally. Isaiah 40:30 tells us: “Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall.”

“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” (v. 28).

It is the Lord who give us our strength, both mentally and physically. We may compare this to an eagle in flight, for he is a large bird needing power to carry his weight as he flies. The answer to the need for power is with God. In Him we have our being, our strength, both mentally and physically. He is our everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. Come to Him if you are weary and He will give you new strength.

PRAYER

Lord God, renew our strength with Your strength and replenish our lives with Your love and power. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
