Ever-flowing Stream Of Grace

Isaiah 40:28-31 says, "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. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 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."

Surely I Am With You Always: When despondency comes upon the Body of Christ and when we have the tendency to bring God down to our level, we need to let the Holy Spirit bring the truths found in today's text to life within our minds and hearts. When things happen that cause you to question your ministry's worth, to become weary and want to give up, God has a promise that will meet you at whatever condition you find yourself in. When Christians grasp the truths Isaiah wrote they overcome all circumstances that can cause them to doubt the Lord's love for them. They find themselves walking in the power of Almighty God, thus hearing, understanding and achieving God's perfect will for them.

The results in trusting in God are far beyond outward observance and far beyond the onlooker's perspective. These results grow out of our relationship with God the Father, Christ our Lord and our ability to walk in step with the Holy Ghost.

Regardless of who you are and your place in the Body of Christ, if you are going to continue on and see your ministry through to a healthy completion, it is going to cost you something, and it is going to require that you put your trust in Jesus' promise, which is "...And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." What determines your ability to enjoy God's grace is your faith in the truths of what Christ spoke, "Surely I Am With You Always"
