"He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: 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." Isaiah 40:29-31

I think all of us have had times when we just feel so weak and feel like we just don't have the strength to go on. Those times are hard and tiring, but then a day comes when we are renewed and we are given strength from God.

When we get that strength ~ that hope ~ it feels like we've got the wings of an eagle and we're flying high. Our strength is renewed, our spirit is renewed and we feel like we’re ready to fight the Devil with a squirt gun!! (That was one of my preacher’s sayings…LOL)

Things get tough, and some things are tougher than others, but we just have to wait upon and trust the Lord. When we do, we will find that time where we are renewed and there really is no feeling that can compare to that moment, especially after a long trial. Whatever you're going through right now even if it feels hopeless, there is hope and there will be a time of your renewing and there will be a time where you will be delivered and when that time comes you will find joy unspeakable.

Think about it, if you were always strong and you never felt weak and you always had that strength, would you appreciate it? Would you even think about where it came from?

When we're weak we hope and wait for this strength to come from the Lord and when we get it we are ever so appreciative for it, but if we always just had it we couldn't appreciate it. If we always had it we would just think that it's normal and that it is of ourselves and not of God, but this strength comes from God!

It is the tough times that we go through that bring glory to God in our deliverance and our renewing of strength. It is when we long for something that we appreciate it so much when we get it and thank God for it.
