Renewed Strength

A reporter once interviewed the legendary baseball player Ty Cobb long after Cobb’s years as a player had ended. The reporter asked, “What do you think you would hit if you were playing today?” Cobb replied, “About .290 or .300.” Since Cobb had been a lifetime .376 hitter, the reporter asked, “Why is that?” Cobb replied, “Because I’m 70 years old.”

You have to admire Cobb’s confidence!

Those who get their strength from the Lord know that we can continue to do great things through him.

“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in 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.”—Isaiah 40:28-31.
