Joining Kate Motaung and a community of writers for Five Minute Friday. The prompt is, “Give.”
Out of strength?
Nothing left to give?
Hear our Father’s words spoken through the prophet Isaiah: “He gives power to the weak and to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary and the young men shall utterly fall.”
Depletion and exhaustion is not restricted to the old. Everyone runs out of resources because human resources are inherently limited. But the One whose resources are infinite says, “Wait on Me, I will renew your strength. Then you will mount up with wings like eagles. Then you shall run and not be weary. You will walk again and not faint.”
And He also says, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength (not yours) is make perfect in weakness.” All you need for this moment, this day, and every moment to come is in Me. I will renew, replenish, sustain, and uphold you.
Be encouraged, Beloved. Be encouraged.
