MONTHLY DEVOTIONAL FOR 17th SEPTEMBER

THE 17TH OF SEPTEMBER 

IN THE LORD WE HAVE STRENGTH EVEN IN OLD AGE

Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on 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 40:30-31

Where is our strength coming from? Are the nutritious meals, healthy lifestyle, diet and exercise our source? Or is it from following the directions of the Holy Spirit in all the aspects of life, including the way we eat and how active we are? In Isaiah’s time, they were not concerned about eating healthy or going to the gym. But they sure understood the importance of living right for the Lord and obeying His commands.

Young age and a vigorous constitution do not always ensure strength and productivity, if the person lives in sin and has an unhealthy lifestyle. But by expecting and believing that God is always there for us whenever we need help, we will receive new strength and be renewed. The more we trust in our Lord, the closer we get to our heavenly Father, just as an eagle flies toward the sun. Living close to God, following His counsel and knowing that He is our source no matter what our needs are, we may walk, run and work without getting tired until we finish what we have to do.

SUGGESTED PRAYER

Glory and honor to Your holy name, Lord Jesus. You are my strength and my rock in any storm of life. I have all I need in You and my protection is secured as long as I live for You. Father God please help me to ask Your advice and then follow it through, in all I have to do. You give me all the power I need to finish what I start. Dear Lord please help me to live a balanced life, overcoming all the lusts of my carnal nature and follow You every day of my life. Thank You Lord, for all You have done and continue to do for me. Amen
