Wrapped In Strength
September 16, 2018

Do you want to be counted wise, to build a reputation for wisdom? Here’s what you do: Live well, live wisely, live humbly. It’s the way you live, not the way you talk, that counts. Mean-spirited ambition isn’t wisdom. Boasting that you are wise isn’t wisdom. Twisting the truth to make yourselves sound wise isn’t wisdom. It’s the furthest thing from wisdom—it’s animal cunning, devilish conniving. Whenever you’re trying to look better than others or get the better of others, things fall apart and everyone ends up at the others’ throats.

James 3:13 MSG

 

Wrapped in Strength
“A Believer Sighting” News Headline   

Isa. 40:31
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. 

They that – Those who choose “The Better Way!”

  • Realization of inadequacy…
  • Overcoming pride and independence is not accepted.

God uses the unqualified – They may
never meet our qualifications!

 Wait – Those choosing The One that Strengthens!

  • An understanding that closeness to God is the only option. Enroll me Lord in the Life’s Lesson class!
  • Weakness is wrapped around strength. (Weave a 2 lb. fishing line through the links of a chain. The line’s strength hasn’t changed, but the line’s ability is now strengthened by The Chains quality and power.

Mount Up – Those who’ve “Chose Well” and are strengthened! 

  • Wings are made ready for flight. Last year’s feathers are molted away.
  • Action is initiated. Use me Lord is a step up not a wishful impossibility.

The close of this verse is not wishful thinking or a life dependent upon circumstance. It is an outcome observed by all. 

They spread their wings and soar like eagles,
They run and don’t get tired,
    they walk and don’t lag behind. 

This world doesn’t know this incredible way of living, this nearness to God. Lord Wrap me in your strength and power. Lord Fill me with The Spirit. I need not live one more moment without Your “Unfailing Ways”.
