Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; His understanding is unsearchable.

Isaiah 40: 28

 

When I engage a task, or even more so, enter into a tough relationship situation, I frequently get part way there and need to take a break, regain my wind, and hope that the resolve that started this thing comes back. My strength is fragile, and my resolve is fleeting, for I run into the obstacles and the resistance that are all too normal in life; then, my energy and my courage are depleted by my own worry, concern, and the words of inadequacy that my mind speaks to my heart.

 

This is simply not how God has proven to be. From Creation until today, the Lord has been the One who finishes what He began; God makes promises and fulfills them; and He provides the wisdom, strength, and focus that I need to accomplish what I set out to do. When I allow God’s wisdom to prevail over my planning, stay in touch with His will through prayer and the word, and keep looking ahead with the understanding that the Lord works at an eternal pace; the Spirit of God seems to miraculously keep me filled with the strength, energy, and will to continue on for the next step in the journey, the words that are required to communicate with others, and the comfort of His presence through everything.

 

Yes, there are days, hours, and moments when I seem to forget all that I know to be true about the way that God has always taken me through life, this is normal, and God blesses my soul by reminding me that He knows that I will forget, and He loves me regardless. The Lord picks up my sagging spirit, lifts my weary arms, and comforts my dry heart with the soothing rain of His Spirit. His strength is my strength, His knowledge and wisdom are what I require to guide me through my day.
