POWER POST FOR THE WEE
ISAIAH 40:31 “BUT THOSE WHO HOPE IN THE LORD WILL RENEW THEIR STRENGTH. THEY WILL SOAR ON WINGS LIKE EAGLES; THEY WILL RUN AND NOT GROW WEARY, THEY WILL WALK AND NOT BE FAINT.”
Is the writer talking about PHYSICAL STRENGTH or PSYCHOLOGICAL STRENGTH here? As modern studies show, one affects the other. And as many Christians who feel they have God working with them, they attest they sense a psychological CONFIDENCE knowing they have a helping hand. Their ATTITUDE improves and they are less tentative and more willing to act. Those sensations in turn engender physical strength. Then these forces work together to improve well-being.
READ THESE NEXT LINES ONLY IF YOU HAVEN’T BEFORE
I’ve found there is power pent up in the phrases from the Bible. They have been read, repeated aloud and pondered for several thousand years. In hours of need when I want direction, comfort or wisdom and God’s spirit I find these phrases help me feel connected to the millions of people before me who have been inspired by these same words. I feel when I repeat these words I am unlocking the spirit that inspired those original first words. I feel at peace and grateful for any help that comes from above. I send a new phrase and a few sentence commentary once a week. Look for them in the future.
