Sometimes the days become long and blend one into the next until we aren’t quite sure where one ends and another begins. We find ourselves weary and worn trying to focus on a goal ahead where we see a little bit of hope that the chaos in which we currently exist will regain some form of balance. The strength for today seems to be so far away, yet it’s there before us waiting for us to seek our refuge in Him.
“For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.” Isaiah 25:4
He is our strength for today, a shadow from the heat. He promises to be with us through the storms of life, providing us with the strength that we are unable to find within ourselves.
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall walk and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
When we become weary and feel like we are past going on, wait upon the one who has promised to be the strength we need for today.
