ent 2014 Day #4

Saturday, March 8, 2014
Isaiah 40:31 But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
This journey we find ourselves on isn’t always easy. You never know when something will happen and days of trial turn into months. Months turn into years. Years turn into seasons of life and still we struggle. It’s part of the human experience.
One blessing God gives His children who hope in the Lord is strength. We can persevere through the toughest struggles because we know the King of Kings is with us every step of the way. God also gives us courage to face the day when we turn to Him. Even then, though, sometimes the burdens get to be too much. God knows and we can turn to Him in prayer, asking for more of whatever we need to face an uncertain tomorrow.
God lifts us up and gives us refreshment to press on. We know that with Him all things are possible and that the present challenges we face are never too big for an all powerful, all knowing God who loves us.
Prayer: Dear Lord, we are tired and worn, but with your love we will have the strength to carry on. AMEN
