FROM LIVING STONE DONNIE POHL:
Read Isaiah 40:29-31
29 He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,
31 But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.” NKJV
These verses have been a comfort to me in the many trials I have faced. They show us that in the flesh we are weak, but out of the Lord’s Great Love, He gives us strength and we can trust in Him. He gives us the Power we need to fight through our trials. We need to wait on the Lord and His timing is perfect! During our trials, God is caring for our every need. Isaiah 40:31 is a verse I say everyday. I shall run and not be weary, I shall walk and not faint because I trust IF God is for me, what can stop me.
I would encourage you to study God’s Word everyday and pray. God has a great plan for your life and He can and will lead you to something greater than you expected. Following God’s plan will bring glory to Him and will always be for God’s purpose. Trust in the Lord!
Trust in the Lord, and Him only!
Proverbs 3:1-8 (NKJV)
1 My son, do not forget my law,
But let your heart keep my commands;
2 For length of days and long life
And peace they will add to you.
3 Let not mercy and truth forsake you;
Bind them around your neck,
Write them on the tablet of your heart,
4 And so find favor and [a]high esteem
In the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall [b]direct your paths.
7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and depart from evil.
8 It will be health to your [c]flesh,
And strength[d] to your bones.
Your Brother In Christ,
