Fly Like An Eagle

Reading from the Book of Isaiah 40:28-31...

28Hast 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.
 Quietly waiting on God encourages us, does more to restore our bodies, minds and emotions than anything else we can do. We need to do this regularly. I urge you to insist on quiet time with God. Do not let anyone take those consecrated moments from you. 
 29He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
 God will empower you to face everything you need to do with renewed physical, emotional, mental and spiritual strength.

 30Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
 31But 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.

If there is something we are suppossed to be doing, the Lord will give us the ability to do it. He will not lead us into a situation and then leave us there to face it alone in our own weak, human power. He is with us. He is our great God. he will harden us to difficulties, help us, uphold us and give us wings to fly like eagles.

Heavenly Father, We ask that you make us strong. Give us the power and the strength that You alone can give. Teach us to walk in Your ways and speak Your truth. Give us the courage to speak out loud, unafraid, and ready to give our life, as You gave Yours.
In Jesus' name, Amen.
