Lent Devotions 2012: Wednesday 28th March

“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 be faint.”
Isaiah 40:31

The promise – that those who put their faith in God will never grow weary – was made to faithful Jews long before Jesus was born. How much easier, therefore, should it be for us Christians to achieve the same promise after Jesus acted as the sacrificial Lamb of God to intercede on our behalf?

We thank You, Lord, for that amazing promise, made in the Old Testament and fulfilled in the New Testament. May we always remember it and lean on it for Your strength and endurance. Amen.
