Our society is filled with runaways, dropouts, and quitters. The epidemic of walking away has hit our land with effects as devastating as the bubonic plague, and it has destroyed millions of effective lives and relationships. We are so self-centred that we have ceased to lay down our lives for others. We have seen others faint or walk away and we have followed in their weakness. We have fainted when we could have persevered by exchanging our strength for His! With His strength, not only could we have kept on walking, we could have run!
– Kay Arthur
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
– Ephesians 4:13 (ESV)
Yet, the strength of those who wait with hope in the Lord will be renewed. They will soar on wings like eagles. They will run and won’t become weary. They will walk and won’t grow tired.
– Isaiah 40:31 (GW)
The Eternal One is good, a safe shelter in times of trouble. He cares for those who search for protection in Him.
– Nahum 1:7 (VOICE)
