Reach Out

Did you know that strength is a gift from GOD? When we think we are too tired to go on...to sick to go on...the GOD of our lives gives us the strength to keep going. HE is all we really need. This morning I read in Isaiah...

Isaiah 40:28-31

New King James Version (NKJV)
28 Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.
29 He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,
31 But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.

What sticks out to me today is how our everlasting GOD, our LORD, gives us the strength we need. When we are weak...HE holds us up. HE meets our every need and HE will never let us down! He is all that we need to make it through our day! HIS strength that HE gives to us is all encompassing. We are surrounded...picked up...and nourished by the strength that our LORD gives to us. 

If you need strength today...if you need peace of mind...just call out to your FATHER. HE is there with HIS arms out stretched just waiting for you. HE won't let you down. Our LORD loves us with an everlasting love.

There is an old song we sang when I was young...

Reach Out And Touch The Lord

chorus:

Reach out and touch the LORD as HE passes by.
You'll find HE's not to weary to hear your hearts cry.
HE's passing by this moment your needs to supply.
Reach out and touch the LORD as HE goes by.

Reach out to HIM today. HE will meet you where you are if you will only ask.

And we need all the strength we can get from Him! The dependency on our Heavenly Father is so real to me these days!

Thank you Chelle for sharing. Blessings.

Sometimes, at my weakest times, I envision myself as a little child, eyes closed, resting my head on the Lord's chest. It has been a struggle at times resisting planning to do things by my own strength. I find myself exhausted from just planning it.
Thanks for sharing this.
