“Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or 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 fall in exhaustion. But those who 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.
Where is your source of power? God is the perfect and on-time source for everything you need or want. The only catch is you have to receive Him as your one and only source by faith. The word of God will renew your mind and feed your faith. If you allow Him, God can do more than we ask or think, and His power is working within us daily. The scriptures make the case that we need to be entirely dependent on Him.
Romans 11:36 says, “For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory…” Exodus 15:2 says, “The LORD is my strength and my song; he has given me victory…” Psalm 28:7 adds “The LORD is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy.”… 2 Corinthians 12:8-10 (AMP): Concerning this I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might leave me; but He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you [My lovingkindness and My mercy are more than enough—always available—regardless of the situation]; for [My] power is being perfected [and is completed and shows itself most effectively] in [your] weakness.” Therefore, I will all the more gladly boast in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ [may completely enfold me and] may dwell in me. So I am well pleased with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, and with difficulties, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak [in human strength], then I am strong [truly able, truly powerful, truly drawing from God’s strength].”
God is our power source. If God closes a door in your life, He can open another door. And if another door closes, He can open a window, and you can crawl through it. God is not limited to your ability and capacity. Bank accounts rise and fall. Economies go up and down. Stock markets can go bull or bear. It doesn’t matter. By coming to Jesus daily, you draw from the source of all resources. He is the love you need, the joy that will motivate and renew you, and the strength that will carry you through the day, no matter how much supply you require.
“Many Christians estimate difficulty in the light of their own resources, and thus they attempt very little and they always fail. All giants have been weak men who did great things for God because they reckoned on His power and presence to be with them.” – Hudson Taylor
