Christ’s strength in weakness

Isaiah 40:31 AMP

But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired. [Heb. 12:1-3.]

It takes a while for us Christian to truly realize in our brain and our hearts that the Lord is strong in our lives when we are weak. He does not want us to lead our lives and resist temptation on our own strength. If we strive to serve
Him like that I assure you we will fail. God wants us to have faith (without faith it is impossible to please Him), He wants us to surrender ourselves to Him. We have to make Jesus not only our Savior but also the Lord of every area of our lives! He always has to come first in our lives. We have to wait on Him as we completely surrender to Him to give us strength. But look at the detail of waiting on the Lord in the verse, it says to expect, look for, and hope in. That is the definition of waiting on the Lord. To expect is to think that something will probably or certainly happen (something good, a blessing). To look for means to seek His face in the Word. Seek His face is studying with the assurance that God will speak to you or show you something through the Bible and teachings. To hope in Him means to trust Him, to know that He is taking care of you in every way. It is when we do that in a practical way, every day that God not only changes us, but renews our strength and power, get us closer to Him, and we  shall run and not be weary, walk and not faint or become tired. Thank You God!💜
