This is my verse for today. I thought I would share it with you.
He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound]. 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.
Isaiah 40:29,31 (AMP)
It’s not only God’s will to save us from sin. He also healed us. He gave us power and strength… He delivered us from our sin. “But to those that “wait” for the Lord…” He makes us whole…healing is a part of salvation.
LOOK UP THESE VERSES (You won’t regret it! 🙂 ) –
- Psalm 103:1-5
- Psalm107: 17, 19-21
- Isaiah 53:4-5
- Jeremiah 17:14
The word salvation in Greek is- SOZO- meaning nothing broken, nothing missing.(Romans 1:16, Romans 10:10-13 for example)
“Your faith cannot operate beyond your knowledge of His Word.”
– Gloria Copeland
Notice it does not say we will not have times of feeling weak (faint and weary), or feeling worn out/exhausted (no might). It says that as we expect,trust and rely on God, look for find out what His word/promises are concerning our situation, and hope in Him, apply stand,receive,take what He says as the Truth. Our strength and power will be renewed.
Two things to always remember:
- It is Gods will to heal and restore us.
- Gods Word never fails.
SAY WHAT YOU BELIEVE
For with the heart a person believes (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Christ) and so is justified (declared righteous, acceptable to God), and with the mouth he confesses (declares openly and speaks out freely his faith) and confirms [his] salvation.
Romans 10:10 (AMP)
Declaration/Confession – Say it out loud and receive it!
*You give power to me when I am faint and weary. In my weakness, You increase strength in me.I wait for You [expect, look for, and hope in You] and You renew my strength and power. I will lift up with wings of strength and rise as an eagle. I shall run and not be weary, I shall walk and not faint or become tired. ( Isaiah 40:29, 13 personified)
For which is easier: to say, Your sins are forgiven and the penalty remitted, or to say, Get up and walk?
But in order that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins and remit the penalty, He then said to the paralyzed man, Get up! Pick up your sleeping pad and go to your own house.
And he got up and went away to his own house.
Matthew 9:5-7 (AMP)
