Daily Devotional

11 June 

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. (Isaiah 40:31, ESV)

Hope is such a strange word. The modern definition says, “to wish for something with expectations.” It seems like nothing more than wishful thinking. “I hope so,” we say over and over. We might as well be saying, “I wish.” Unless we use the archaic meaning of the word, the biblical meaning of the word hope: “to have confidence and trust.” Wishful thinking is futile and drains our energy but this verse reminds us that if we hope in the Lord we will renew our strength! We will not grow weary and faint away but be confident, trusting in Him!

Prayer: Lord, you are my strength.
