God Wants to Multiply Your Strength!
“He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, 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.” (the Bible, Isaiah 40:29-31)
“And to those who have no might He increases strength” -- the word “increase” in Hebrew means “to be or become much, many or great; multiply.” As you know, God is the God of multiplication! He does exceedingly abundantly above what we ask or think. He uses the one who is small and weak and makes him/her a mighty person of valor! He takes five loaves of bread and two fish and feeds a multitude.
In fact, Jesus takes our “subtraction” and transforms it into multiplication! What is subtracting from you? What are the things diminishing your life and vigor?
Today, He can increase, multiply, your strength. Bring Him your failures, your weaknesses, what little you have...and let Him pray for you. The greatest force in the universe is in you and with you!
“He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.” (see the Bible, Romans 8:32-34)
Here’s some good news: Christ is interceding for you. He is at your side, all the time. Whether you feel His gentle presence or not, He is there.
Pray with me right now: “Lord, thank You for interceding for me. What a gift to know that You’re praying for me. Thank You for being right beside me. Today, I release my weakness and weariness into Your hands. You alone can raise me up and renew my strength...I believe it! Yes, I believe that You’re multiplying my strength. Thank You for everything You’re doing in my life, Lord! Amen.”
Thanks for existing!
