Anti - Aging Power

People around the world,regardless of race,spend billions annually on various anti-aging products that claim to cure baldness,remove wrinkles,build muscles and renew the powers of youth. can those products deliver what they promise? Most authorities say " there is absolutely no scientific proof that any commercially available product will stop or reverse aging".
But there is a promise of spiritual vitality that defies the ravages of time. Isaiah 40:30:31 stated "Even the youths shall faint and be weary and the young men shall utterly fall but those who wait in the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles,they shall run and not be weary,they shall walk and not faint."
Isaiah used the eagle as a symbol of freedom and endurance,held aloft by a source of power outside itself. As we put our hope and trust in the Lord,we are carried along by His strength and not over our own.Psalm 103:5 said it is the Lord who nourishes us so that "our youth is renewed like the eagle's"
Growing old is a blessing when we're growing closer to to God. many of us fear aging with all the trouble it brings. But when we are gradually stripped of everything that props us up-whether wealth,independence,health,dignity,beauty or all of the above-we are left withmore and more of God. So no matter how old we are it's not too late to dig deep in God's Word and invest more and more time in our spiritual well-being. We'll see the pay-offs now and later. The older we get,the better we can become.

The ravages of time cannot be stopped
Yes, outwardly we perish everyday;
But inner strength of heart can be renewed
By trusting in the Lord to light our way.
