As we protest against racism worldwide, many of us are tired and weary in a struggle that has taken generations. Are you feeling tired or weary? Do you need strength for today and the road ahead? The Scripture tells us that when we hope in the Lord, thatâ€™s exactly what we will getâ€”strength! Therefore get hope, get strength! No hope leads to weariness and fatigue!
If youâ€™ve grown weary and tired, overwhelmed by the cares of this world, itâ€™s a clear sign that you need to change what youâ€™re putting your hope in. Are you putting your hope in your job? The government? The economy? Another person? Or worldly organisations? All of these things will keep you focused on earthly things, making you mentally and physically tired. But when you hope in the Lord, you are investing in the Rock of Ages. He never gets weary! He is the only solid foundation for your soul, with a clear plan for your success.
Today, find strength by simply putting your hope in God. Declare out loud, God, I place my hope in You. I trust You are working in my life, even though at times I canâ€™t feel or see You, I will rest in You. Now, feed your hope and faith by meditating daily on the Scriptures. As you renew your mind with the Word of God, youâ€™ll find strength, youâ€™ll find hope, and youâ€™ll find His victory for all the days of your life!
â€œBut 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.â€(Isaiah 40:31, NIV)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for renewing my strength as I put my hope in You. Father, help me to have a spiritual revival, because Iâ€™m tired of following earthly human ideologies that focus on secular issues. I declare today that I love You and trust You. I know that You are working in my life and in the life of others. God, please donâ€™t allow me to get so distracted that I lose hope in You. Fill me with Your peace and joy as I wait on You, in Jesusâ€™ Name! Amen.
