“A Wonderful Promise”

 

Isaiah 41:10 says, “I will strengthen thee.”

 

When called to serve or to suffer, we take stock in our strength, and we find it to be less than we thought we had or less than we might need. We should never let our heart sink within us while we have such a word as Isaiah to fall back upon. This word guarantees us all that we can possible need. God has strength omnipotent. His strength can be communicated to us; and His promise is that He will do this very thing. He will be the food of our souls and the health of our hearts; and thus He will give us strength. No one can ever tell how much power God can put into a man. In His divine strength human weakness is never a hindrance.

 

We should remember seasons of trial in which we received special strength and wondered how did I make it through? In the middle of danger we were calm, under difficult times we were resigned, in sickness we were patient. The fact of the matter is God gives us unexpected strength when unusual trials come upon us. We rise out of our feeble selves and put our trust in God alone. Cowards play the man, foolish people have wisdom given to them, and the silent receive in the self-same hour what they shall speak. In my own weakness I cower and shrink, but God’s promises make be braver than ever. Lord give me strength beyond my own and always according to Your Word.

 

Ride on Friend,
