God's Power Within Us #4 - POWER TO THE WEAK & WEARY

SundayPower4

God's Power Within Us #4 - Power to the Weak & Weary
Today we continue learning about God's Power within us.  God's Word is full of passages talking about His power and showing us that we have nonstop access to His strength every second of every day.

Today we will be focusing on Isaiah 40:28-31

Remember, Jesus said that we (Spirit filled Christians) are able to perform all of the miraculous works that Jesus did when He was here in human form.  Actually, Jesus said that we would do EVEN GREATER than what He did (see Scripture passage below).

SundayPower


John 14:12-14 also shows us how powerful the name of Jesus Christ is:  "If you ask anything in My name".  (It is important to note that these miracles must glorify our Heavenly Father).

Since there are so many wonderful "Power" passages in God's Word, I decided to write a "Power" post on the last Sunday of every month.
(Actually, I got off schedule, so this is the first Sunday of October)

Below is the featured "power" passage for October:


SundayPower4a

First we need to remind ourselves of the absolute greatness of our Heavenly Father:
- Our Lord God Almighty is EVERLASTING
- He is the Creator of the ends of the earth (that is a whole teaching in and of itself)
- He will NOT grow weary or tired
- Nobody can fathom God's understanding

SundayPower4b

Let's define the basics:

Weary - physically or mentally tired

Weak - lacking physical strength, energy or vigor

Usually we think of the elderly when we are talking about weariness and weakness, but look at the passage above.  It talks about the young stumbling around and getting tired.  We ALL need God's strength and power - it's not just for the elderly. 


SundayPower4c

Verse 31 is so wonderfully descriptive!  Let's detail it line by line:
1.  All we have to do is grasp onto the hope of Jesus Christ and our strength is renewed!!!  The hope of Jesus Christ is - eternal life & forgiveness of sins (which is the free gift to all who receive it!!).  All because Jesus Christ sacrificed Himself and died on the cross, rose again and is sitting at the right hand of the Father for ever and ever. 
2.  We will soar on wings like eagles.  God provides and guides - it is as if we are flying through the air because of God's strength and power. 
3.  We will run and not grow weary.  If you're over 50 years old then you know how easy it is to get tired out when running.  This is symbolic of course, but as we run through life, the everyday happenings will wear you out on a daily basis. However, our Lord's power will prevent us from growing weary.
4.  We will walk and not be faint.  This is about endurance.  Many miles of walking through life means many years of serving God by using whatever spiritual gift He has given us.  We can continue serving God even into our elderly years by drawing from His power every day!




Our strength and power comes from our Heavenly Father who will NEVER grow weary or tired!

RED SUN Sunflower Variety

RED SUN Sunflower Variety

Usually September is SUNFLOWER Season here in God's Growing Garden.  However, the last of my sunflower postings are delayed due to the fact that my mom was called home to Jesus last week.  Today I am featuring: RED SUN variety which is the third out of four total varieties grown this year and being featured in the Sunflower Series of 2023.  

This variety was bought from:

(click the title to purchase this amazing seed packet)


Before showing the featured pictures, I wanted to remind you why sunflowers are my favorite flower.  Sunflowers always turn towards the sun - you can literally see them gently turning throughout the day to follow the sun.  To be very clear - I am NOT a "sun" worshiper.  However, I am a "Son" worshiper:  Jesus Christ The Son of God and I strive every day to grow and turn towards Him in every aspect of my life.
  
ENJOY the following pictures!

All photos were taken by me (Angie Ouellette-Tower) and the sunflowers were all grown in my garden.

This variety is like a miracle - It has orange and red sunflowers growing on the same stem!!  At first I thought some strange cross-pollination had happened because the flowers looked mostly orange like this one:

But then I saw this (orange & red flowers on the same plant!!):
