Strong hands and knees

With this news, strengthen those who have tired hands, and encourage those who have weak knees. Say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, and do not fear, for your God is coming to destroy your enemies. He is coming to save you.” Isaiah 35:3-4

Strong Hands and Knees
The people were about to face something terrible, something that would be enough to make the hands of anyone weak, and the knees of the strongest feeble. But in light of the glorious restoration God promised to bring it was no time to be weak! God was telling them to get strong and get going!

Every single one of us, as Believers, has a role to play. We use our hands to work with, and if our hands are weak, we will not be as effective as we could be for Him.

Our knees are vital, both to make progress with and knees are symbolic of prayer. We need to have STRONG knees.

Say to those with fearful hearts”
This is talking about the people of God who are afraid, not unbelievers. In trying times, it’s the strong hope of the LORD that we need, to overcome our fearful hearts, not a vague optimism that everything might work out; our hearts are helped by the ASSURED confidence that our Mighty God will come and save us.

Let’s strengthen ourselves in the Lord, so that we can encourage one another daily, through this strange time. Our God never changes, and His promises NEVER fail. HE is our hope and our strength.

I love getting together with friends and sharing with each other over a cup of coffee what God is doing in our lives, it boosts my faith and lifts my heart. That's the aim of this blog. There's a story behind it; It was inspired after a friend gave me a single mustard seed, saying ‘that’s all it takes Jill’. What my friend didn’t know was that the very same morning God had reminded me of a promise He'd made to me over 20 years before regarding writing. I took the mustard seed home, planted it and watched it grow from a tiny sapling to a large, flourishing shrub at our front door. Every time I look at it it reminds me that our God is always true to his promises. Jesus lives in and works through his people, every single day. It's good to share what he's doing! I love talking about Him and writing about Him.
