Got energy?

May 3, 2018 by Dr. Jack Graham

… But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength….

–Isaiah 40:31

How are you today? Full of energy and ready to go, or tired and ready for a nap?

Well, of course, I’m asking a loaded question. I saw a study a while back that said 89 percent of Americans report feeling fatigued most of the time. Can you relate?

Fatigue is part of living. But let me tell you something… fatigue shouldn’t be your life’s norm! I know many people who seem truly exhausted. They’re burned-out—physically, emotionally, and even spiritually. And as a result, they face a depletion of strength and are utterly discouraged with life.  

People from all walks of life face incredible demands on their time and energy. The endless barrage of noise and clamor for our attention can leave us spent and sputtering—barely able to get through the day.

Have I described how you feel? Are you running on empty and getting nowhere fast?

Well, if so, I have some good news for you. In fact, God has a word for you today. And it’s one of the most joyous promises in all of Scripture:

They who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint (Isaiah 40:31).

What a glorious promise! Claim it for yourself today!
