There are times when we get weary of the challenges that we face each day in life but be assured that God has a way to rejuvenate our spirit with a second wind. The word weary means to lose the sense of pleasure, to not feel the enjoyment that you once felt. On the way to our victory, in life, we will always face the weariness test and we must not give up. Weariness leads to discouragement and we must remember that God has given us the strength to succeed to fulfill our destiny in life. We need to stay in faith with God taking one day at a time and enjoy life.
Joel quoted these verses of Scripture:
This is the information from This Week’s Message page about today’s broadcast titled Your Second Wind Is On Its Way by Joel Osteen:
Isaiah 40:31 says, “But 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.”
There are times in life that we all get tired: tired of trying to make a business grow, tired of dealing with a sickness, tired of raising a difficult child, tired of living lonely, waiting to meet the right person.
We can even be doing what we love, living in the house of our dreams, raising great children, or working at a good job, but if we’re not careful, we can lose our passion and allow weariness to set in.
The problem is if you allow yourself to become weary, you’ll be tempted to quit: to quit growing, quit standing for that wayward child, quit believing to get healthy and whole, or quit pursuing your goals and dreams.
That’s why you have to wait upon the Lord and hope in Him. Don’t give up when victory is right around the corner. God promises He will renew your strength. As you thank God for fighting your battles, you will be able to run and not get weary, you’ll walk and not faint.
You’re not going to drag through life defeated, depressed, and under the circumstances. You’re going to soar through life on wings like eagles, overcoming every obstacle, defeating every enemy and accomplishing every God-given dream.
Be blessed knowing that your second wind is on its way!
