Summary: A message about how to stay strong and put priorities in order in our lives.

Isaiah 40:31

Good Morning

Stand with me and lift up your bible and repeat after me.

This is my Bible.

I am what it says I am.

I can do what it says I can do.

I am going to learn how to be what it says I can be.

Today I will learn more of the word of God.

The indestructible, never ending, living word Of God.

I will never be the same.

I will never be the same.

In Jesus Name

Open your bibles to the book of Isaiah chapter 40 and say, “Amen” when you are there.

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.

As we go through the times that are occurring here on earth, maybe in our busy lives we should spend real time with the One who is and was and is to come?

We are busy people.

But we need to remember and be reminded who is with us at all times and our choices in life are to include spending more time with Him.

Our priorities have changed over the years. Let me read this to you. It is called, “Funny Things.”

Funny how a $10.00 bill looks so big when you take it to church, but so

small when you take it to the mall.

Funny how big an hour serving God looks and how small 60 minutes are when spent playing golf, fishing or shopping.

Funny how we get thrilled when a football game goes into overtime, but we

complain when a sermon is longer than the regular time.

Funny how laborious it is to read a chapter in the Bible and how easy it is

to read 200-300 pages of a best-selling novel.

Funny how we believe what newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

Funny how people scramble to get a front seat at any game, but scramble to get a back seat at a church service.

Funny how we cannot fit a gospel meeting into our schedule with our yearly

planner but we can schedule for other events at a moment's notice.

Funny how we need 2 or 3 weeks to fit a church event into our schedule, but can adjust it for a social event at the last minute.

Funny how much difficulty some have learning a simple bit of the gospel well enough to tell others, but how simple it is for the same people to understand and explain gossip about someone else.

Funny how we can't think of anything to say when we pray, and don't have any difficulty thinking of things to talk about to a friend.

Funny how we are so quick to take direction from a total stranger when we

are lost, but are hesitant to take God's direction to be found.

Funny how people are so consumed with what others think about them rather than what God thinks about them.

Funny how so many churchgoers sing "Standing on the Promises" but all they do is sit on the premises.

Funny how people think that they can get more accomplished in a lifetime

without God than in an hour with Him.

Funny how everyone wants to go to heaven, provided they don't have to

believe, or to think, or to say, or to do anything.

Funny how we all need to read this.

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.

When I started going to church, I went for the wrong reasons. I went to be with a woman that I wanted to be with. Not to hear the word.

All of the funny things we just read were true.

My priorities were right along those lines.

Then I made a commitment and asked Jesus into my heart and I started to realize what a relationship with God through Jesus Christ was all about. That was almost 40 years ago and I am still learning. How about you?

Are you learning to have a better relationship with God?

Or are you to overwhelmed by life?

It is not hard.

As I share this message today the following things are happening in the world;

A dust storm that has traveled over half of the planet earth hurting many in its path.

Locusts are destroying plant life in different parts of Africa and the Middle East.

The corona virus is devastating many, many lives all around the world with thousands of people dying.



Wars and threats of war.

Political unrest.

Protests of how people of color have been treated over the years.
