Daily Devotional – 11/14/17 “Isaiah 40:27-31”

Here it is, another Tuesday in another month, almost at the end of another year and somebody is still tarrying at the table of the tempter. Still being troubled by temptation yet you will not trouble the one on the throne. The toil of tomorrow is already terrifying you because you will not use your tongue to trample against your tormentors. You are being tortured by your transgressions and you’re trapped. What now beloved? Will you die there or will you choose to live? Will you drown where you are or will you come up for air, one more time? Are you willing to give up or will you try again? I’m only asking the question, you have to do the work so what will it be? It’s your choice but you need to decide because time will not wait until you get all the tears out. Time is not at your mercy, waiting until you fix you. Time will not stand still for you. What will it be? I can’t answer for you neither can I give you strength to push on. What I can do is point you in the direction of the one who can.

His name is God and He shares with us these words in Isaiah 40:27-31, “O Jacob, how can you say the Lord does not see your troubles? O Israel, how can you say God ignores your rights? Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired and young men will fall in exhaustion. 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.” Why an eagle? Because they can see their enemy from a distance, they flock and eat with other eagles, they don’t dwell amongst nor eat of anything dead, they can soar through storms, wait on the right male companion, build their nest out of the enemy’s reach, train their children and when their body has been beat up by what they’ve gone through; they rest through their metamorphosis phase (allowing new feathers to grow). You got this but you’ve got to believe that you do!
