“They shall feed along the roads, and their pastures shall be on all desolate heights. They shall neither hunger nor thirst” (Isaiah 49.10).
While in the wilderness, the LORD fed Israel for 40 years with manna from Heaven. When the Kingdom of the Lord Jesus is established on earth, we will enjoy “a feast of choice pieces, a feast of witness on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of well-refined wines on the lees” (Isaiah 25.6). The LORD will prepare a table before us in the presence of our enemies (Psalm 23.5).
Lately, my strength has faltered. I ask that the LORD provide strength for me. I ask others to intercede on my behalf to this end. But the heat and the work prove too much for me. My body breaks down at some point. I struggle to wake and do what needs to be done. I even need the antibodies of others to continue on. While the LORD is good and gracious to keep me going day by day, there is coming a day when I will not be able to continue. There is coming a day when all physical strength will give out, and I will die. However, this is not the end.
There is also coming a Day when my strength will be full. God’s provision for me will be so complete that no task will be too hard for me. No difficulty will be too great. I shall not want for energy and strength. He shall fully provide for me. It is true that the LORD provides strength and sustenance for me now. He is gracious and merciful that way. But in that Day, I shall have a complete, full, and perfect provision to enable me to serve Him.
