Your Strength Will Increase as You Walk!
Today, we’re finishing our study of this magnificent verse in Isaiah. This week has been a beginning of victory over fatigue and weariness!
“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)
Life as a Christian is a walk each day. But sometimes, we’re stopped -- trials, illness, rejection, bad news, the fiery darts of the wicked one -- all of these seem to want to stop us dead in our tracks.
One day, Jesus met a man lying down by the Pool of Bethesda …
His life had been as if stopped, wasted, for a long time. Jesus saw him lying there and, knowing that he had been sick for a long time, said to him, “Do you want to be made well?” The sick man responded, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.” And Jesus said, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.” Immediately, the man was healed, picked his bed up, and started walking. (read the account in the Bible, John 5:6-9)
The Lord wants to give you the strength to walk. And to walk without fainting! The promise is that “They shall walk and not faint.” And this promise is for you.
“Blessed are those who dwell in Your house; They will still be praising You. Selah. Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, Whose heart is set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baca [lit. Weeping], They make it a spring; The rain also covers it with pools [or Blessings].” (the Bible, Psalm 84:4-6)
As you continue moving forward, your strength is going to increase. You are going to find the paths laid out for you in your heart, and you’ll make the valley of tears into a spring and blessings.
Why? Because the Lord Himself walks with you! Walking with God is having the Almighty God as a personal coach.
So gather your courage, you’re not alone, and if you’re moving towards and with God, you’ll be more than a conqueror! Your limited strength meets an unlimited God, and fatigue will no longer be your master. There is a God who believes in you!
