Isaiah 40:31 (NLT)
But those who trust in the Lord
will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run
and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
This verse dropped in
my lap this morning. In June, I saved it
in new messages and today, as I searched through mail for something else, it
rose to the top. Is it a coincidence
that yesterday I wrote about flying on wings of eagles? I think not.
God must want us to spend more time on this lesson.
Those who trust in the
Lord will find new strength. Pulling out
my new Bible (hee! hee!), I find trust means to wait for, hope, depend, look
for, or expect. It means to prioritize
your daily activities around the certainty of a future event. It means trusting God is working even when it
doesn’t look like it or we don’t understand.
Expect God to fulfill His promises.
Believe it. Know it.
God isn’t an energy
drink you chug when you’re tired. Trusting
God is a way of life. This deep
connection with God energizes us to soar like eagles.
I think there’s a song we could be humming about eagles’ wings…..
