But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] will gain new strength and renew their power; they will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun]; they will run and not become weary, they will walk and not grow tired. (Isaiah 40:31)
Today we rise up in victory because Jesus of Nazareth has overcome death. He has paid the penalty for our sins and He has fully restored us into a relationship with our Heavenly Father. Therefore, victory is ours, because Jesus Christ is the risen King and Lord of all.
Lord Jesus, we give you all of the glory, honor, and praise. You have defeated death, and you are the author of life. Our names are written in the Lamb’s book of life, and you are faithful to complete the work that you have begun within us. So, come, Lord Jesus, for your bride awaits you. Amen.
