Scriptural Thought for the Day

Isaiah 40:28-31  “Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.  29  He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.  30  Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:  31  But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

  • Have you ever seen someone faint?  Some people faint from excessive heat, or from exhaustion, or from being dehydrated.  Some people faint from fear, or in a traumatic situation.  No matter the reason, the result is the same.  When we faint, we loose conscienceless, our muscles go limp, are ability to think and act is removed, and we fall to the ground. 
  • In our Christian lives, as the issues that surround us mount, sometime we grow weary.  We are told in Galatians 6:9  that it is even possible to grow wearing in well doing.  “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
  • How do we keep from growing weary and fainting in our Christian lives?
    • By waiting on the LORD, so that He can renew our strength, to the place that we will be able to mount up with wings as eagles, so we can run and not be weary and walk, and not be faint!
      • “They that wait”, what does this mean?  Strong’s Concordance defines this as, “to bind together with expectation.”
        • When we wait on the LORD, we search His Word for truth and the promises of God.  And we when find them, we hold on to them tight, so that we can patiently endure our circumstances, knowing that God will perform His Word in our lives and help us get through in a victorious manner!  In this hope and expectation, our strength will be renewed and we will keep from falling faint to the situations that surround us, and sometime cave in on us!
    • I pray that you have a blessed day in the LORD!  
      • Spend some time in His Word today!  Grab hold of the Promises of God, and enjoy the ride!!

    To bind up with expectation…… It sort of reminds me of a cast. When a bone is fractured or broken, but could still be used if a cast were applied, the cast provides operability until the weak or injured part is strengthened or healed, rather than becoming totally dysfunctional, as in a faint. Let us apply the cast of the Word of God until we are fully strengthened and wait with expectation for our healing!
