LIVE IN STRENGTH - “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.” Isaiah 40:31
It's there, it says it, I know it, but for some reason my brain doesn't not always get it. Why is that? Why is it that we know that we can draw strength from the Lord, but when we need it, it's like all of a sudden we have memory loss. After this last year of really getting into Living Out 52, I have been really looking into this. Because who couldn't use more strength during those time where strength can be hard to find.
"But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength..." This really confused me because I felt as if I trusted the Lord so why did I still not have this new strength? What God showed me was that I did Trust in him, but not in everything all the time. That I would have moments of thinking I could do something in my own strength and I would put him on a shelf. Because of course I can handle my life, situations, issues, shortcomings all on my own.... Yes you can laugh. I really had to have a talk with myself, I really had to sit down and tell myself that it was time to stop playing around, it is time to be all in, to understand that I need God ALL THE TIME. There is no longer a shelf to sit him on because I have to be ALL IN. That means the little things the big things and everything in between, if I keep my trust in check, I will be able to find his Strength. Let's work on this as we Live at peace and now in strength!!
