Daily Devotional - September 22nd

Sep 22, 2017 - Sep 22, 2017 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Daily Read – Isaiah 39:1-41:16; Ephesians 1:1-23; Psalm 66:1-20, Proverbs 23:25-28
 
Isaiah 40:31
 But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
 
The word wait in the Hebrew Lexicon is translated qavah which means: to look for, to hope, and to expect. Those who wait on Me receive revelation. As you faithfully look for me, you will find Me. I am not hard to find, if you search for Me with your whole heart. 
 
In your pursuit, My Zoe life sustains you with expectancy and hope pushing you to continue searching and waiting for Me. The Holy Spirit is the wind beneath your wings that carries you into heavenly places where I bless you with every spiritual blessing in My Son, Christ Jesus.  
 
The eagle reads the wind and finds the air current that lifts him above the storms where he soars unaffected by the turbulence beneath. He trusts the wind. Rest and allow My Spirit to carry you into the safety of the secret place far above the storms of life. Trust My Spirit.
 
From this place of trust and rest, you shall run, and not grow weary because you run in the Spirit and not in the flesh. From this place of trust and rest, you shall walk and not faint, because you live, move, and have your being in Christ and not in the flesh. 
 
From this place, weariness, fainting, and exhaustion go because you will be
Soaring in the Spirit instead of flapping in the flesh. 

Father, take me into the high places where I can soar with You. I am tired of flapping around all day accomplishing nothing but exhausting myself. The busyness of life tethers me down and hinders my flight into heavenly places. Holy Spirit, I give you permission to show me those things that keep me earthbound. I ask You to shine the light of truth into my day and illuminate all things that weigh me down. As You show me, I ask for the wisdom and strategy to lighten the load.  In Jesus Name, Amen.
