He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.

Isaiah 40:29 NIV

Listen to Words from the Heart

Strength

The website howandwhat.net speaks to the strength of Canada. It says, “Canada takes pride in its diverse natural resources and enjoys taking advantage of them. It has an abundance of oil reserves, coal deposits, and potash mines. This along with many other resources allows it to have a stable economy as well as an energy-efficient society. Canada is one of the top 10 economies in the world. Like its political stability, its economic environment is stable as well. It has a massive banking sector.”

Last March I watched a video of a 99-year-old powerlifter who broke a world record for his age, lifting 150 pounds. I’m not sure I could lift that much, and I’m 30 years younger than he is. Most of us get weaker as we age, and all of us face things for which we just don’t have the strength. The strength we need for tasks isn’t always physical – more often than not we need emotional, psychological, or mental strength, and we usually find we don’t have that kind of strength either. If you are facing something today then listen to what Isaiah 40:29 says, “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” God’s strength never diminishes. His power never lessens. Isaiah discovered that no matter what his need, God was able to provide. Being a prophet was never easy – God often asked His prophets to do challenging things. Isaiah discovered that God never gives an unfunded mandate. He provides all we need for whatever it is He asks of us. If you are weary, ask Him for strength. If you are weak, ask Him for power. He will always provide.

These have been words from the heart.
