God's strength

We as humans have our limitations. We need our sleep, and we can only do so much physically before we are overcome with the need for rest.

Right now at work we're on a busy schedule trying to catch up due to bringing in a new machine with the time it took to take out the old and install it. And it's running like mad. And that's good. And along with that comes so fast paced work at times, along with ten hour days.

I was reminded and blessed with this passage from the majestic chapter 40 of Isaiah, itself a majestic book in the Book:
but those who wait on 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.
I put it on our computer screen saver at work, and it's a good reminder to us, there in the Lord's work, and really to all of us, because in whatever we do, we're to do it to the glory of God.

We're to wait in faith and in expectation, knowing God will give us strength according to the day, in Jesus. And let's remember that God gives to his beloved in Jesus, sleep.

What do you find about this in your own life?
