Where have you placed your hope?

“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.” Isaiah 40:30-31 (NIV)

Family, If you are putting your hope in anything but God…a better outcome, or the outcome you think is best, you will NOT be renewed and you will grow weary. Putting our hope outside of God, and in life situations is a sure fire way to set ourselves up to crumble with outcomes that don’t go the way we think or feel they should’ve.

The Bible says that IF our hope is in the Lord, our strength will continually be renewed, we will have the endurance to run without getting tired or weary, and we will not faint as we walk out this journey called life. When our hope is in Him, overwhelming situations will become the force under our wings that lifts us higher as we soar above it all!

If you know anything about eagles, the one thing that grabs me every time I read this scripture, is that they actually use the strength of the storm to launch them higher as they soar unphased, and untouched by what’s going on beneath them. This is an amazing fact that really paints us a powerful picture of what God’s Word is actually saying is available to us!

He wants US to soar like eagles in the same manner. We are empowered to live this way when our hope is secure in Him.

I am no stranger to life storms. I have been blindsided by life and felt punched in the gut so many times I’ve lost count…BUT GOD! I’ve learned to press into Him and yield to His Spirit within me, becoming empowered to soar above it all with a peace that saturates my soul.

This is not a fake-it-till-you-make-it lifestyle. We have access to a supernatural strength when we line our lives up with God’s heart and His Truth.

If you find yourself tired, weary, weak and unable to soar high above life situations, my question would be: Where have you placed your hope?
