One of the greatest joys of my ministry is getting to share the message of the gospel with those who really do not know our gracious God. Oh, they may know about the Lord Jesus, but they do not truly know Him — not as the God of free and faithful grace.
When you have a very personal and very emotional situation in your life, it’s easy to feel isolated and alone – “I need to talk about this, but am I safe to bring it up?” It’s worse when you are afraid that you and God are on opposite sides of the issue. That’s where one man in a prison Bible study found himself stuck.
“But those who wait for the Lord will receive new strength. They will lift up their wings and soar like eagles. They will run and not be weary. They will walk and not become tired” (Isaiah 40:31).
What a blessing to run and not be weary and to walk and not become tired, but so often in our world that does not happen.
