loving...

You know how people often call the bible the living word.

I know why that is.... but I'm always blown away by how God moves in our hearts. How each time I read a verse, something else jumps out at me that I didn't see before. Rhema word.

Tonight, after reading Sussana Rose's note, I went to read Isaiah 40.

26. Look up into the heavens. Who created all the stars? He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by its name. Because of his great power and incomparable strength, not a single one is missing.
O Jacob, how can you say the Lord does not see your troubles? O Israel, how can you say God ignores your rights?
Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding.
He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.
Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.


What promises, and yes, what love.

Arohanui.

The body does grow weary as occasionally does the soul, but He is always there to lift us up, stengthen and encourage us as we will allow Him to do so. ec
