“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 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.” Isaiah 40:28-31
“Then He said to me, “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son.” Revelation 21:6-7
I’ve always loved these verses of Scripture. It is inevitable that In life we will have times when we grow tired and weary from things such as illness, loss, circumstances beyond our control, or a myriad of other causes. We often don’t understand why things happen as they do, but God has a plan through it all. He is always on duty tending to every small and large detail. As Christians, our job is to trust Him with every detail of life and to walk in such a way that others will see Who it is that we depend on through every season. Sometimes that’s hard, but it’s the safest and wisest thing to do.
When our HOPE is placed in the Lord, things change. We look at life differently knowing that the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last are always there giving us strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow.
Today and every day, I’m thankful for the restorative peace and joy that Jesus brings to those who trust Him enough to let go and let Him do the needed soul work in their lives. There is peace, joy, and hope in His wonder-working power.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, Creator of all things, how we honor You for Your mighty power. You alone have the keys to life and breath and strength. Thank You for being there for us in all ways, at all times, through all circumstances in life. You give us hope and freedom through salvation in Jesus and we thank You from the depths of our hearts. Please forgive us when we fail You and help us walk in such a way that others will see Your wonder-working power through our lives. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
