Isaiah 40:29 (ESV) He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.
It's truly amazing, almost unbelievable. I am sure we have all heard the stories where people find unbelievable strength in the time of crisis. Stories like the woman who picked up the back end of a car to get it off her child or the man who held on till help arrived. Today's verse shares how God will increase our strength. There are times in a man's life when he faces things that will cause him to lose strength and question. They cause him to cry out. The best place to cry out to is to God. When we read His Word, do we truly believe the words, or do we think they were for another time and place? The answer will be found only when we put our faith and trust in Him. Sure, it may be easier said than done, but think of the lady who lifted the car. She had faith and believed, and it was accomplished. The same is true for our God. Do we believe?
