POWER TO THE WEAK - Bro. T. Stephen

I greet and bless you in the name of our Creator, Maker, and ever unforgettable Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given  for you today is from the book of  Isaiah 40:29, ”He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength.”

From the above context we learn that God gives power to those who are very weak and increases the strength of those who have no might. Weakness is a special weapon that the devil uses to spoil the lives of the children of God.   Weakness is a tool which the devil instils in the lives of the children of God, that they do not advance in their life, and therefore they cannot be victorious too. When a man becomes weak he cannot work properly and neither can he concentrate on anything in particular. He falls into depression. His heart is pushed towards weakness; He loses his health and even his trust on himself. As a result he becomes sick that leads to severe disease. He loses all his sleep. The Lord wants to strengthen those of you who are weak and heavy laden. God wants to give strength to all those who are weak. 

The strength of a person is not in the body but in the heart of a person. When the heart grows weary then the person does not feel like eating or drinking. He is engrossed in his worries, so he is not able to enjoy anything around him.  He doesn’t even feel like talking to someone. Weakness cripples a man from all his activities. The organs in his body fail to cooperate with him. They will not be able to do anything. In some families they would have lost their dear one in their family, as a result they would be filled with sorrow.  Relatives might comfort them and ask them to eat and drink something so as to keep their body healthy. But they wouldn’t listen to them because of the sorrow they go through.  They will   not have an appetite to eat anything. Instead they would cry out their sorrows. They would think as to, what is the next step they have to take. Or how will they be able to bring up their children, having lost their   husband. These are the fears that would keep troubling them   at that particular time. Worries will encroach their mind, and they will think of the struggles they would have to go through in the future. That is the time when they will lose their faith in God. But children of God should be careful during such times. They should not shift their faith on anything else but the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible says, Cast all your burden upon the Lord Jesus Christ, And He will sustain you. He will never allow the righteous to be moved.

God says that He gives power to those who are very weak and increases the strength to those who have no might. He refers to the spiritual weakness of the person. The Lord not only wants to stabilize the physical weakness of your body but also wants to stabilize the weakness of your spiritual life. Once a spiritual life of a person, becomes weak, then his prayer life gets hindered. They will not be able to pray properly. They will not like to meet others or speak with others. They will look as if they have been shattered in life and have no interest in anything whatsoever.  Today Jesus is going to give strength, to such depressed and sorrowful people.   God will give you strength to regain stability in life. That they may focus on their future, and carry on their regular or routine chores In life. How will God strengthen them? He will make some alternative for the thing that they have lost in their life and, make them joyful in life. We read about Isaac. He was the son of Abraham. He was born when Abraham was 100 years old. He was thus the son of his old age. His mother was fond of him. He too loved her much. But she died and she did not see the marriage of her son.  Isaac was filled with grief. He couldn’t bear the loss of his mother Sarah.

Abraham was worried about his son Isaac. He sent his servant Eliezar to his own people to select a bride for his son.  But   Isaac went to the fields to meditate on the word of God during the evening time. He remembered the past memories of his mother and was kindled with grief all the more.  On one such evening he saw camels coming towards his tent. Eliezer had found a beautiful bride for him and she mounted from the camel, on seeing Isaac.  Isaac was filled with great joy. The Bible says,”And Isaac went out to meditate in the field in the evening; and he lifted his eyes and looked, and there, the camels were coming. Then Rebekah lifted her eyes, and when she saw Isaac she dismounted from her camel; for she had said to the servant, “Who is this man walking in the field to meet us?” The servant said, “It is my master.” So she took a veil and covered herself.  And the servant told Isaac all the things that he had done. Then Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah’s tent; and he took Rebekah and she became his wife, and he loved her. So Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death.  God substituted Rebekah in  the  place of  Sarah his mother. God will do the same for you also. God will grant you, peace and joy in your life when you meditate on the word of God as Isaac meditated every day in the evening, to forget his sorrow. God will change your sorrow into joy. God bless you. 

Prayer:    Our   loving    heavenly Father, we thank   You   for this blessed day. Lord we thank You for giving   power to the weak and increasing the strength of those who have no might. Help us not to become weak physically or spiritually. May we be strong and sturdy in life so that we may not fall in depression or give up our prayer life. Teach us to be healthy in mind and body even when we go through hard times. Give us strength to overcome all the difficulties that we face in our day to day life. Grant us peace and joy.

In Jesus Name We Pray.

Amen.
