Isaiah 40, aka what keeps me going

The week is barely over but this morning I found myself drop-dead tired. At 8 AM. Tired. Lord, hindi ko na po kaya. I know I’m doing this for you. For things greater than myself. Pero ubos na po ako.

Isaiah 40. Read it slow, line by line, phrase by phrase. Know what everlasting means when placed beside the name of God. Know the impact of the truth that He does not grow tired. Know the life-changing effect of when God puts the words hope and renew and strength alongside His name in a single sentence.

Be refreshed. The well is full, waiting, reflecting light back to its source. His Word is living water, forever. No one needs to stay empty.

27 Why do you complain, Jacob?
    Why do you say, Israel,
“My way is hidden from the Lord;
    my cause is disregarded by my God”?
28 Do you not know?
    Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
    and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
    and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
    and young men stumble and fall;
31 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.

(ESV)
