Happy Sunday friends. Today I’m simply sharing some scriptures that was illuminated for me in the past week.
“Do you not know? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood since the earth was founded?
He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in.
He brings princes to naught and reduces the rulers of this world to nothing.
No sooner are they planted, no sooner are they sown, no sooner do they take root in the ground, than he blows on them and they wither, and a whirlwind sweeps them away like chaff.
‘To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?’ says the Holy One.
Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.
Why do you complain, Jacob? Why do you say, Israel, “My way is hidden from the LORD; my cause is disregarded by my God”?
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.”
I’ve heard these words many times before, but reading them before bed the other night they came alive for me in a different way. It isn’t called the “living word” for no reason.
Reading “lift up your eyes and look to the heaven” reminded me to step out my head. Let go of the stress that exists in the here and now and look up and remember the God who formed it all.
It’s too easy to just go about my life and let the weight of everything bury me, inhibiting me from living fully. Yet, we were made to soar on the wings of an eagle, to be empowered and uplifted by a God who will not let us grow weary or become faint.
We must remember what have heard- the Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.It is He that gives us the strength that never lets up.
Look up, breathe in, and remember the Creator.
