WILL POWER

Isaiah 40:29-31

 

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 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.

 

EXAMPLE

 

“I read the many teachings of the Bible regarding God’s election, predestination, his chosen, and so on. I read also the many teachings regarding ‘whosoever will may come’ and urging people to exercise their responsibility as human beings. These seeming contradictions cannot be reconciled by the puny human mind. With childlike faith, I cling to both ropes, fully confident that in eternity I will see that both strands of truth are, after all, of one piece.”

John Morren

 

LESSON

 

Isaiah spoke of an everlasting comfort that came from the everlasting Word of God, resulting in an everlasting strength. The renewing of our strength requires that we wait upon the Lord even in the midst of great trials. Our faith and trust must be tested to gain strength.

We must come to grips with the fact that worship without intensity and interaction with God is dead and dry. And if it is this way, it is because we have made it so. On-the-other-hand worship from the heart is life-changing. Waiting on the Lord entails patient faith and is rewarded by His strength.
