He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint"
Today's Morsel: Do you ever hit one of those points where you become discouraged and you start to feel as though you have no one you can talk to or that no one seems to care? What would you say this is or why do you think it happens? Would you say it is a attack from the enemy or you just lost focus?I believe that it is the latter, as the devil has no power over us. Often, in this fast pace life, it is easy to lose focus on what you are doing and not wait upon the Lord. Many times, we allow the things of God to become second or third instead of first place and we are soon out of whack. Isaiah said that the Lord will give power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increases strength. When we become weary in well doing, we become powerless. God's power is still there, but we forget to offer praise and stir it back up. We want to sulk instead of worship. The call here by the Lord is to wait when we don't know what to do. David could have immediately went after the men who took his family at Zitlag. But he didn't. He waited until he and his men were through being weary and faint hearted. You see if they would have taken matters into their own hands without waiting on the Lord, they no doubt when have done foolishly. We must learn patience. Learn determination. Learn commitment. And above all, learn to keep our flesh under subjection until God does what He desires to do within us. And then we will see that our strength is renewed and made perfect in Him. "In your patience possess ye your souls," Jesus said in Luke 21:19.
Sing: Thy that wait upon the Lord, shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary they shall walk and not faint, teach me Lord, teach me Lord to wait.
