As I’ve said before, often, my words fail. I can’t express myself. I can’t pour out my messy heart because I don’t know what’s going on inside my heart. Tuesdays in October, I’m sharing scripture that have spoken to me in my season of waiting.

Isaiah 40 spoke to me in the depth of my fear and darkness. The chapter speaks of God’s greatness and his love for His people.

Isaiah 40:27-31 says:

27 Why do you say, O Jacob,
    and speak, O Israel,
“My way is hidden from the Lord,
    and my right is disregarded by my God”?
28 Have you not known? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not faint or grow weary;
    his understanding is unsearchable.
29 He gives power to the faint,
    and to him who has no might he increases strength.
30 Even youths shall faint and be weary,
    and young men shall fall exhausted;
31 but they who wait for 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.

It speaks about man’s weakness and God’s provision. God’s constant strength and power and His provision for those who wait for Him.

What scripture has been speaking to you?
