I knew when I read this verse during my devotions that I wanted to use it for my
weekly scripture and snapshot post.
Immediately, when I saw the word infuse, I thought of the image of a cup of tea.
The water becomes infused with tea and becomes tea with the help of a little time and a little heat.
I meditated on God infusing me with His strength.
I understood that spending time with Him is essential to being infused with inner strength.
When I thought of the heat, I instantly thought about how they say trials make us stronger.
Yes, I do believe God uses the heat of trials in our life for good and that trials can make us either better or bitter.
The choice of which we become is up to us.
But, I felt God speak to my heart that this is not the type of heat that He was speaking to me about.
He spoke to my heart that in order to be infused with His strength we must take time exposing our cold hearts to the warmth of His Word and the fire of His all consuming love.
In my quiet time each day, I'm reading shorter portions of scripture, but meditating upon them more.
I'm worshipping along with some of my favorite worship music and soaking in God's presence and love.
I want to be ready for anything and equal to anything through Him.
I want to be infused with His strength.
