“Yet they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
I love the context of this verse. The preceding verse notes than even young people grow tired and weary. Sometimes they even stumble and fall. But believers — even middle-aged ones like me — can trust God to continually sustain and energize and give them the strength to do all He’s called them to do.
Aren’t you grateful to know that?
Furthermore, the promise in Isaiah is backed up by lots of supporting verses that make it clear where the Christian’s true strength resides:
- “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matthew 11:28-29)
- “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13)
- “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)
- “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.” (Ephesians 6:10)
So next time you’re feeling depleted or in need of a recharge, plug into God’s Word and let Him energize you from the inside out!
