It takes breath to speak words.
Genesis 1:3 ~ Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light…”
The Breath of God spoke the World into existence.
At Breath on Paper we believe memorizing scripture is the best way to get the Word of God in our heart.
Our verse for this week reminds us that it is when we put our hope in the Lord that we soar above our problems, like the eagle soars above the earth. One translation says, “those who wait upon the Lord”. What if the ‘wait’ is the serve kind of wait? Strength will rise as we wait upon The Lord…as we serve Him. Read it that way and see the different meaning it takes on.
but those wait upon 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.
