Do NOT be Discouraged! Keep Fighting On!
But those who wait on 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 40:31
Although the battle has already been won, the trials of life hit us like a runaway train. This makes us go into disarray as we fall apart and begin to lose focus on our Lord Jesus.
We start becoming weary and also begin to lose strength.
Thank God that we have been provided with a book filled with encouragement, His Bible. His message to us.
Isaiah says that if we wait on the Lord, our Heavenly Father will instill in us renewed strength. He will provide us with the spiritual nourishment that we need to keep on trekking.
The strength He provides is crazy radical and comes with a peace that surpasses all understanding.
Isaiah also says that along with this renewed strength we will mount up with wings like eagles. No, its not like when you drink a Red Bull you all of a sudden grow wings ;)
Isaiah is speaking of the characteristics of the eagle. They are awesome. Do a bit of research on them and you'll see.
Isaiah says we will be able to run and not tire. That's crazy, but true. The more we wait on the Lord, the more strength we will receive to keep us running the spiritual race.
Additionally, you can take a pause from running and walk for a very, very long time and you won't faint.
Remember, this is a heart thing. Accept and apply His Word and you will do well.
Thank you Jesus for blessing us with all that we need to stay in the battle until we see You one day!
Stay Strong brothers and sisters!
