What to Remember When Life Takes You into Exile

Mark 1:29-34 KJV

29   And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.

30   But Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her.

31   And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.

32   And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.

33   And all the city was gathered together at the door.

34   And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.

Isaiah 40:29-31 NLT

29   He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.

30   Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion.

31   But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

Ezekiel, Daniel, Jeremiah, Ezra, Nehemiah, Obadiah, Esther, Haggai, Psalm 137, and Isaiah are all written in response to the exile.

Strength is the Hebrew word – koach

How does strength come?

  1. Soaring Power
  2. Surging Power
  3. Staying Power
