“He giveth power to the faint: and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength: they shall mount up with wings of eagles; they shall run and not be weary: and they shall walk, and not faint” (Isaiah 40:29-31).

The Baptist Bible lowered no comes to you under the direction of Elder Lucero Bradley Junior, pastor of the Cincinnati primitive Baptist Church will and the solution ready Junior inviting you to stay tuned for another message of God's sovereign grace will and will be in and in no and no will will and in and will pay for me to be in a stay my day of love and I will, I may will see the no name, the, will I want to remind you that are broadcast dismissed or supported, and should we hope that if you're able to assist us at this time you will do so you can go to our website at Baptist Bible, our dock, or make a donation.

There were writers at Baptist Bible Auerbach 17 old 37th Cincinnati, OH 45217 and be he will be the be and he he he he he he know he he he he he he he he he he he and he. We continue the message today entitled help for the thinking text is Isaiah chapter 40 beginning with the 27th verse and I will read the text once more why she is now Jacob and speaker, show your true my way is hidden from the Lord, and my judgment is passed over from my God hash now not know hash now not heard that the everlasting God, the Lord, the creator of the end of the earth faint if not, neither is weary.

There is no searching of his understanding give us power to the faint, and to them that have no might he increases strength, even the use shall faint and be weary of the young man shall utterly fall but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength they shall mount up with wings as eagles they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint. In the first part of this message. We have competent length about some of the things it brings us to that point of feeling faint feeling ready to give up. We will continue there today and go on to talk about the health that is provided for each and then about Jess because of playing overall discouragement go down the list of all the things that are perplexing things that you tried to repair things situations relationships that you tried to fix and get back in order and say what's the use. Revelation 69 says and let us not be weary in well doing, for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. So if you're doing the right thing if you're serving God.

If you are ministering in his kingdom with your sowing the seed, you haven't seen anything come up recently.

You don't give up the not weary in well doing, because you will eventually reap. You may not see all the harvest, but you will reap if you faint not.

If you think if you pick in the town became a you're not going to say the postures and then we see here help provide verse 26 of Isaiah 40 lift up your eyes on high and behold who have created all these things bring their homespun number he called them all by name, by the rightness of his might. For that he is strong in power not one faith is what we get.

God says I'm going to give you strength going to give you power so that you will not think Charlie says lift up your eyes hold with created all these things I just am continually amazed at the creation of God's creation displays his power, his Majesty, I'm eating breakfast on my porch. Just watch up but will be busy at work going from one flower to the next RC piece birds come participate little hummingbirds just darting in and out all birds and some of which I can meet our flowers and all of the amazing things that are part of God's creation how intricate the human body is your sick body is probably the reason is clear evidence of what he is created he has not only made it all but holds it all by the word of his power.

So he says take note of God's creation by the greatness of his mind he has done it all. He is strong in power. He does not claim in verse 28 hast thou not known hash now not heard that the everlasting God, the Lord, the creator of the end of the earth fail is not, neither is weary Tired Faint. I didn't have to remove himself from active duty for a while and then we wonder how we going to make it God is on the throne every day in and day out. The is there doing what is his pleasure to the glory of his name for the benefit of his people. He is the creator, the creator of the end of the earth faint. If not, neither is weary and there's no searching of his understanding things are stated about God just in this fashion. These the creator has great power. A strong in power. He's the everlasting God, he does not faint.

He is not weary you think about the everlasting talk a lot about things that happened before the foundation of the world God choosing a people and predestinate all of those things we could talk about but then you go back and say God has always everything we know starting place so you think never, never has been a time that God did not exist.

I will bet you that I can't adequately wrap my mind around it just is just beyond us.

God has always been and always will be.

So we trust in the everlasting God surely that gives us confidence. Confidence to trust in him completely know that he can rescue us from our thinking fits then it says he gives power and increases strength. Not only is he powerful so we know that the source of the help we need is adequate, but he's going to give us a certain amount of power is going to increase our strength.

The possible onset of Philippians 413 I can do all things have not just by gritting my teeth dig in my heels into the animal to make it. I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me get the place in life you just look at everything that you immediately in front of his arrival get through this. I don't have physical strength have the mental stamina I don't have the spiritual strength don't have, don't make it in this text, I can do all things, all things are good godly worthwhile. I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me and Paul further says in second grade. In chapter 12 verse nine, when it asked the Lord to remove the forms in the flesh is as migraines.

This is God's answer. My grace is sufficient for me for my strength is made perfect in weakness.

So even though you are weak. My strength is displayed in your weakness. So Paul says most gladly therefore will not glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities and reproaches, in necessities and persecutions and distresses, for Christ's sake. When I'm weak, then am I strong. They you know that's the exact opposite of the way the world thinks world said stronger strong.

If you strongly need to get strong need to run work out whatever it is, building muscles be stronger pulses when I'm weak, strong.

When we reach the place it acknowledge Lord I don't have the strength.

I don't have the wisdom I don't have one on the but I know you have in my weakness I come to you, come to you depending on your grace, your mercy, the strength that you have promise to give then the question arises how to move forward with the strength when it is renewed, he says is going to renew our strength people to give us strength to give us power over so you have to recognize that strength is not provided so you can rest and get out of the line of duty. God didn't give you the strength say I know you're tired so I'm give you a temporary discharge from service and you just just take what is about your given strength so you can run the race so you can fight the battle so you can successfully wrestle with the enemy. We wrestle not with flesh and blood, but with spiritual wickedness in high places. Strength is used in blast activity, says he will mount up with wings as eagles.

Her three different categories here so it doesn't indicate that every time strength is given every time God delivered to difficult situation that you're going to soar like an eagle, but there are times that you just are blessed spiritually to fly above what ever that weight has been was pushing it.

You stand amazed at Jack. I can't believe how quickly this transformation was down deep in the dark place right now I'm rejoicing in the Lord and even though the circumstances not change.

I've read about them blesses us to mount up with wings as eagles had to run and not be weary felt like I can't run anymore. I'm tired of this right is a long time or place finally say okay, time for me to sit down and run this race and this is going to give you the strength so you can run the race and not be weary, but you don't run all the time. Sometimes you will but you still moving wall and not thanked go along at a steady pace. Not giving up. Not thinking so when the strength is given by God, the power that he has these precious Lord heaven moving forward, not stopping, not complaining, not giving up but move on, walking, running joyfully in the way of God's command when there may have been complaints even like that major complaint.

There may have been some incorrect conclusions to think of the mercy of the Lord is clean, gone forever not here minimal.

But at this juncture with the strength of the grace that God has given you your Johnson serving you're not complaining, you're not focusing on the problem tree on your own witness because you've turned that over the Lord found courage when you read that God has chosen the weak things that confound them.

I thought I'd like you qualify for the I may miss the mark on a lot of things but if you've been pleased to choose the week available and I want to be used for your glory, for the more we are to be diligent in prayer in Luke chapter 18 verse one and he spake a parable unto them to this and that man ought always to pray and not what things not to think ought always to pray and not think and he talked about the woman that goes to the unjust judge of said surveys remind adversary and she would bring no for an answer. She kept coming back to back finally set out to grant the request on tardy or want to get rid of you might say that's a strange lesson is not know look at look at the contrast she was talking to an unjust judge who didn't care anything about when you make your request don't you talking to your heavenly father loves you your part of this that he's interested in every detail of your life so that parable is to encourage us to be diligent and faithful in prayer at all time man ought always to pray and not to faint and then it's important that you maintain the right spiritual die that you got to eat the right thing in well really eat it at the right time when I was younger I went through a period of my life or if I didn't eat own schedule. I got the shakes just one pretending trying to get the cook, hurry up, it was just the fact that if I didn't eat soon. I felt like I was going to faint and everyday totally pass out, but I felt like well it's important that we eat a healthy diet, but only the physical food to nourish our bodies, but the spiritual food to nourish our soul. Jesus said in Matthew chapter 4 verse four he answered and said this is his reply to Satan. When Satan was tempting him in the wilderness. He said it is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeded out of the mouth of God feeding on the wrong thing can make you unhealthy physically and spiritually feeding on the wrong thing can cause you to find feeding on the word of God can make you strong strong in the faith build you up give you the courage to hope the piece that you so desperately need. So I got give you the strength you don't just take it for granted.

I just turn him every morning for a new supply of strength. Yes, he will give the strength needed, but there's something to be doing in the process, diligent in prayer, maintaining the right spiritual die and then keep looking unto Jesus. Hebrews chapter 12 verse two looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith and for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, endured why he was looking ahead. Certainly he was not joyous about the horrendous being nailed to the cross.

But he knew what was on the other side.

He was looking forward to that great day when he would stand in the presence of the father and save the hold high the children which thou here, I paid for the I secured them kept them there all here so he was despising the shame as he endured the cross because he was looking ahead to the joy that a way to deal with that said that we needed we get cash down discouraged because we're looking at the things that are seen in Paul enjoins us to look at the things that are not seen my face look to the same that are of God, and in heaven itself, where we planned someday to be so now he is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, that she be weary than what thanked in your minds that you become weary that you become think your faults are such that your pet the big think, because you're not thinking right. So, lest you be weary, discouraged, ready to give up thing in your mind what to do. Looking on to Jesus all encouragement what strength we get by looking to him and depending upon him, and communing with him having fellowship with from speaking to somebody today. Feelings to be thinking discouraged may feel hopeless, appointed to the one who has all power and who delights to hear the cry of those are in great need somebody today may feel faint discouraged about your own salvation you been waiting for a feeling you wanted to have some kind of impressive experience would satisfy your own mind and convince other, but I urge you today look to Jesus company. Depending on how you feel and how you would like for all of this to sort out here what Jesus said in John chapter 3 verse 14 and as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whosoever believe it in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Just as Moses lifted up, that serpent of those were bitten by serpents looked upon it. Jesus says in like manner so that I am totally lifted up because he would look it up on the cross is the one that believes in him will look to Jesus look to him as this one shall not perish but have eternal life. See there's hope for those who feel faint because our strength, our help in our God is a God of great power. See my limits and encouraging promise.

When we read in Isaiah chapter 40 that he gives power to the faint, and them that have no might he increases strength.
