Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 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. Isaiah 40: 24-31

I did a little blog hopping early this morning, and I found many posts about "change". Even I wrote on warmharte regarding change before I started hopping around. Is it the season for change? Is it because summer is turning rapidly into autumn? Or is it because we are being more receptive to the changes God desires for us?

I was listening to the song "The Power of Your Love" by Hillsongs on my way to church this morning. And this song is also about change--allowing God to see the weaknesses in ourselves, stripping them away and replacing them with His will for us.

I have made many changes in my life, and I still have many to work on. I cannot do these things alone. I need God's direction in my life, God's strength, God's hope. If I do not rely on God's power, I will certainly falter and fall.

I need to ask God, moment by moment, what I am to do next.

With God at my side, drawing me closer and closer to Him, increasing my faith and trust in Him, by His power and His power alone, I will be able to make these changes. Then I will soar on wings like an eagle.

I used the words to this song as a prayer this morning. I invite you to do the same--listen to the song and pray the words asking God into your heart to give you the strength and power to sustain you in your own personal changes.

Lord I come to You
Let my heart be changed, renewed
Flowing from the grace
That I found in You.
And Lord I've come to know
The weaknesses I see in me
Will be stripped away
By the power of Your love.

Hold me close
Let Your love surround me
Bring me near
Draw me to Your side.
And as I wait
I'll rise up like the eagle
And I will soar with You
Your Spirit leads me on
In the power of Your love.

Lord unveil my eyes
Let me see You face to face
The knowledge of Your love
As You live in me.
Lord renew my mind
As Your will unfolds in my life
In living every day
In the power of Your love.

I have always loved this song. Thank you for sharing and reminding me of it. This is my prayer also, that He would live in me and through me.
