Strenghten Your Weak Knees

Topic: To Run, We Must Leave The Spiritual Paralysis

12 Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, 13 and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.

Hebrews 12:12-13 (NKJV)

Daily Reading Plan

Micah 1-7

Bible Versions:

Hebrews 12:12-13 (MSG) — 12-13 So don’t sit around on your hands! No more dragging your feet! Clear the path for long-distance runners so no one will trip and fall, so no one will step in a hole and sprain an ankle. Help each other out. And run for it!

Hebrews 12:12-13 (NLT) — 12 So take a new grip with your tired hands and strengthen your weak knees. 13 Mark out a straight path for your feet so that those who are weak and lame will not fall but become strong.

Thoughts Of Devotion:

God’s calling us this morning to get up from the state we are in. If we really are going to run the race before us, we must first stand up and take the challenge. Today we must ask the Lord to strengthen us for the long race ahead. In Isaiah 35:3-4 we are exhorted to ” Strengthen the weak hands, And make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are fearful-hearted, “Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, With the recompense of God; He will come and save you.”

Some of us have been paralyzed for a long time, our knees are paralyzed by lack of exercise. We have our spiritual muscles numbed, we might even have allowed spiritual laziness to dominate us! In Proverbs 24: 33-34, it warns us that, “A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to rest; 34 So shall your poverty come like a prowler, And your need like an armed man.” What a warning His word gives us! To stay in a state of spiritual paralysis is very dangerous, because sooner or later we will suffer major consequences. Nothing good can come from staying parked on our Christian path.

The Lord warns us today to exercise our feeble knees. We have a long race ahead! No one can be left behind, we must all come out victorious in this race. In 1 Thessalonians 5:14 it says, “Now we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all.” Today is the time to take encouragement and support one another! Great blessings come to those who run this race. Surely the Lord will reward those that rise up and run with endurance to the end.

Foundational Scriptures:

Isaiah 35:3-4 (NKJV) — Strengthen the weak hands, And make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are fearful-hearted, “Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, With the recompense of God; He will come and save you.”

1 Thessalonians 5:14 (NKJV) — 14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all.

Isaiah 35:8 (NKJV) — A highway shall be there, and a road, And it shall be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean shall not pass over it, But it shall be for others. Whoever walks the road, although a fool, Shall not go astray.

Ephesians 5:14 (NKJV) — 14 Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.”

Isaiah 60:1 (NKJV) — 60 Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you

Proverbs 24:33-34 (NKJV) — 33 A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to rest; 34 So shall your poverty come like a prowler, And your need like an armed man.

    And your need like an armed man.
