On My Knees


Scripture for the day:  Isaiah 40:28-31 “Have you not known?  Have you not heard?  The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary.  His understanding is unsearchable.  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.”

 

Sometimes I am tired.  I find it hard to put one foot in front of the other, and I need to rest.  I can blame it on accumulating birthdays, but that is just an excuse.  The truth is I am growing older and my body doesn’t recover as fast as it did when I was young.  It takes me longer to do things, and some things are simply impossible now.  But my God is never too weak; He never faints; nothing is out of the realm of possibility for Him.  And so I wait on Him.  I know these trials are just for a day and I will spend all eternity with Him.  I must be patient, diligent in prayer and strong in my faith.  I need to spend more time on my knees before Him and He will give me the strength I need.  And so I pause today, resting in Him, and waiting for the day He returns.  He is all I need today, tomorrow and forevermore.  I simply say “thank you, Lord.”

 

Song for the day:  “Jesus is All the World to Me”

 

“Jesus is all the world to me, my life, my joy, my all; He is my strength from day to day, without Him I would fall”.  He’s my friend.
