This morning, I considered the kindness of God “who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s (Psalm 103:5). Think about this declaration about God from David. He satisfies our desires with good things so that we feel young and fresh and strong like an eagle.
So many of us feel like we’re languishing! Right at the time when we should feel relaxed and refreshed to start a new semester or a new project, we feel worn out. Rather than soaring above the fray, we’re stuck and muddled up. We need God to renew us.
I think about the majesty and fearlessness of the eagle. Can you imagine living a renewed life, full of this kind of vitality?
What a wonderful prayer to ask God to satisfy people’s desires with good things as they seek Him. We can pray for a renewed sense of energy. We can also ask God to open our eyes to see how He sends us “good things” when things look bleak. I imagine we must accept these gifts to make them operational in our lives. What good thing is God giving that we haven’t accepted–that very thing that will renew us?
