“Gaining New Strength”…

eadles

                                                                                                 *****

But those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;

they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40 : 31

Last week i spoke about “Waiting on the Lord”
And here is another promise for those who WAIT on the Lord.
What does it mean to ‘wait on the Lord?
It means to enter into a relationship with God, To rest  in Him:
Surrender to His will for our lives because
we know we can have complete confidence in Him.

Our time of waiting upon the Lord may be during
our worship – as we renew our minds.
Prayer is a relationship – a bridge that takes us away
from the things of the world – to a special time with God.

In sitting at the feet of Jesus –
Mary demonstrated the “one thing” we need.
What Martha, her sister needed was a calm, devotional spirit,
and a knowledge for the future.
She needed less anxiety for the things which would pass away,
and more for those things that endure forever.
We need like Mary- to spend time
listening to the Lord – through reading His word.

We should thank Jesus for His love to us.
Thank Him for His promise that
new strength is ours if we wait on the Lord.

Wishing you a “Blessed Sabbath”
