Have You Not Heard?

Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord, The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints not is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength,"
(Isaiah 40: 28,29)

How comforting to know that our Creator never faints, nor grows weary.
  He is always there to meet our needs.  He created all, and is in
charge of all.

I moved here to Arizona just a year ago.  Since I have been here, I
have been diagnosed with three different chronic illnesses.  Each day I am
faced with pain and fatigue, changing my whole daily life.  But in
reading God’s word, and searching Him out in prayer and believing that He
is in control, I can let go of many daily struggles.  Through His word
I have found that he gives us peace, love, and strength. I know there
are many days I run out of strength.  My body becomes weaker as the day
carries on. I can not continue on my own.  But, He lifts me up and
gives strength to my heart and mind.  Allowing me to lean on him and not
this weak body of mine.

God promises to always take care of us.  Through Him we can find the
peace and power to deal with our pains and weaknesses.  God describes our
strength given from him as the strength of the eagle.  We need to hold
on to the promises he gives.  In (Isaiah 55: 11) it says, "So shall My
word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the
thing for which I sent it."  Just as the rain gives life to thirsty and
withered  plants, God’s word brings life to our hearts and minds.  He
will renew us each day as we go to Him in prayer, and in His word.  What
an everlasting God we have!

Heavenly Father, thank you for lifting us up each day.  For renewing
our strength, our hearts, and minds.  Your love rains on us as we are
thirsty and withered plants, springing forth with renewed strength.  Thank
You for always being there for us. I’m thankful You are my Creator,
the One with endless strength and power.
