What is the source of your Strength?

 One of my favorite waterfalls is Looking Glass Falls in Pisgah National Forest between Brevard N.C. and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Through the years, I have been there by myself and been there with friends. I have seen it in all kinds of weather… I have seen it in the rain, drought, sunshine, snow and fog. One thing is constant is that…it never runs out of water. It’s as if it has unending supply and never runs dry. It is powerful and strong and never weak, regardless of what the weather changes are around it.  When I think about how God, the Creator provides that never ending source of strength for this waterfall, how much more so He is able to provide, spiritual, emotional, and physical strength for you and me…every day. 

“Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows 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 fail in exhaustion. But those who (wait upon the Lord) 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 .”- Isaiah 40:28-31 (NLT). Think about how this describes God as our personal source of strength:

1. The Lord is the everlasting God. ( He is always there for you and me)

2. The Lord is the Creator of all the Earth. ( He made this world and us too)

3. God’s wisdom and understanding is endless. ( He knows and understands better than anyone)

4. God gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. ( He renews our strength as we trust Him and exchange our weakness for His strength)

5. Waiting for and Trusting in the Lord will renew our strength. ( He is our source of hope and confidence)

6. God will keep us going. (“Even the strongest people get tired at times, but God’s power and strength never diminish. He is never too tired or too busy to help and listen. His strength is our source of strength. When you feel all of life crushing you and you cannot go another step, remember the you can call upon God to renew your strength.” – Life Application Bible)

So, in other words…When we exchange our weakness for God’s Strength by faith and trusting in Him, we renewed by His love and grace, just like a waterfall that never runs dry. I have personally found it helpful, when I am feeling overwhelmed to pray a simple prayer … “Lord, this is bigger than me, I can’t handle this in my own strength but I known You can through me, as I trust You, amen.” He can be our Ultimate Source of Strength today if we will trust Him…
