Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.


Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles. (Isaiah 40;31)

Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is approaching long before it comes?

The eagle will fly up to some high spot where it will wait for the storm to approach. When the winds hit, the eagle will stretch out its wings so that the wind will carry it up and over the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is safely soaring above it. So the eagle does not escape the storm, but uses the storm to lift it to safety.
When our storm comes, be it illness, grief or disappointment of any kind, let us use it as a catalyst that will raise us up to greater heights. The grace of God will strengthen us and keep us safe. God’s grace is always sufficient and His power is made perfect in our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9)

The storms will come to us, but we shall overcome them.

    This was one of the best little devotional messages I have ever read pertaining to this Bible verse (which we frequently hear)! It makes it easier to absorb the message so it will be even more meaningful the next time I hear it. Recently, it was one of the verses used at a home-going service for the father of one of my friends.

      Thank you Patrice, I suffered ill health for many years and was bedridden for 13 years, in all that time God’s grace was so abundant that my suffering became a joy. His grace is truly sufficient.
