Word of Encouragement-Eagle

July 19th, 2021 1 comment

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Word of Encouragement is Eagle.

An eagle is a large bird known for keen sight and soaring flight.

This bird has a huge wingspan that can soar at altitudes as high as 10,000 feet or more. The Bald Eagle is the national symbol of American culture to capture the spirit of freedom.

The Bible refers to an eagle’s flight to represent the hope that is found in the Lord.

Isaiah 40:31 says, “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.”

Hope is energizing, and moves us forward in our faith when we look to Jesus as our source of hope.

Find encouragement in the flight of the eagle to put our ultimate hope in Jesus in the Year of Endurance.

Promise of Hope-Renewed Strength

August 25th, 2017 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Promise of Hope is based on Isaiah 40, verse 31.

“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.”

Verse 29 in that chapter tells us that the LORD gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

Worry has a way of depleting our energy. Stress leads us to places of anxiety. And a hurried pace of life can lead to burnout. But hope in the Lord brings renewal of strength, by refreshing our perspective that God is in control. He is greater than the weight of our adversity. He is stronger than the spiritual forces of darkness. In His grace, we experience His peace, know His joy, and are energized by His love. Hope strengthens us to rise above life’s challenges to move forward in God’s grace.

Renewed Strength is a promise of hope for those who follow Jesus in the Year of Trust.
