Good afternoon Church family
For me as we journey through the gospel of John, or Hebrews as we are doing at Bible Study, there is one underlying word that seems to keep coming up. It’s perseverance. If we are to mature in our faiths, we need to persevere. Distraction is our biggest enemy particularly when it causes us to worry. Is God even aware of what we are going through? Listen to what Isaiah says, it’s a comfort…
“Why do you say, O Jacob, and assert, O Israel, “My way is hidden from the LORD, And the justice due me escapes the notice of my God”? Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth Does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. He gives strength to the weary, And to him who lacks might He increases power. Though youths grow weary and tired, And vigorous young men stumble badly, Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.” Isaiah 40:27-31
May we always draw our strength from the Lord!
