The Exchange

“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.” (Isaiah 40:31 NIV)

The prophet Isaiah says that through the pressures of life, even young people grow tired and stumble.  No matter how strong you are physically, the cares of life will wear you down.  But there is a promise for those who are hoping, trusting and waiting on God with the expectation that he won’t let them down.  Others who put their trust in their own strength will be disappointed and will fall.  But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  And that word “renew” comes from a Hebrew word that means “exchange.”  So they that wait upon the Lord will exchange their strength.  Guess whose strength they will get?  God is telling you and me, “Give me your weariness, your weakness, your mess-ups, your negativity, your frustrations, and I will give you my strength.”  It has nothing to do with background, upbringing or training; those who hope in God are going to get God’s supernatural strength in exchange for their weakness.  We certainly get the best deal from that trade!  And with that strength, we will be able to soar straight up like the eagle, out of the line of fire and into the heights with the Lord.

Read Isaiah 40:30-31.
