Dear Brothers and Sisters,
In the Old Testament Isaiah 40:31, it 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.” When we look around the situation in the world, kingdom against kingdom, nation against nation, there are earthquakes and famines in various places, how can people spread their wings? If we only rely on our own strength, under such heavy pressure, to make us soar upward, it seems to be a contradiction. David also cried out in the midst of suffering, but when David focused on the eternal God, his state of mind brought hope, like adding a pair of wings of a dove to soar in the sky and be at rest (Psalm 55:6). Later, David expressed in verse 22: “Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; He will never let the righteous be shaken“. “Burden” in the Bible has often been translated into: “What God has given you”. The burden of the believer is given by the Lord. However, the burden leads us to wait and depend on Him. As we face the turbulent normalcy of the world, remember that prayer is our strength, because:
- Prayers bring hope.
- Prayers bring unity.
- Prayers bring strength.
Whether you are a believer or an ardent friend, I encourage everyone to pray like this at this moment: “Loving Father, I am willing to hand over all my worries and sorrows to You. May You provide us with all our needs and be able to fly freely. Rest in peace. In the name of the Lord, amen!”
