More Than Bread Devotional for 7/30/12

27 Why do you say, O Jacob,
and speak, O Israel,
“My way is hidden from the Lord,
and my right is disregarded by my God”?
28 Have you not known? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not faint or grow weary;
his understanding is unsearchable.
29 He gives power to the faint,
and to him who has no might he increases strength.
30 Even youths shall faint and be weary,
and young men shall fall exhausted;
31 but 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 40:27-31

Have you ever felt like you were “hidden from God?”  We can all get weary for different reasons.  Perhaps you are undergoing a period of testing or tribulation and it feels like God is nowhere to be found.  Perhaps you feel unappreciated and as if no one even notices your absence or presence.  Isaiah reminds us of that which we should never forget.  The Lord does not grow weary, even if we should grow weary.  He will give us strength and renew us to continue on in the race.  This is part of what Jesus means when He promised that He would never leave us or forsake us.  He is with you at your weariest moment.  He is with you when you think all hope or strength is gone.  If you are weary, call on Him and let Him renew you today.
