DSC04002But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.  They will soar high on wings like eagles.  They will run and not grow weary.  They will walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

A walk by faith may have some legs on the journey where we feel tired.  We may feel bodily pains that are contrary to healing or fatigue in our minds that zaps our zeal for the day ahead.  This passage from Isaiah reminds us to keep our trust in the Lord.  Not in what you see today and not even in what you feel but keep your trust in Him.  He is the source of our strength and a very present help when we need Him.  I thank God for a soaring spirit that comes when we rest in Him.  He will provide new strength, new energy when we put our trust in Him.  We can run and walk and continue on the journey strong.

Why would you ever complain, O Jacob,
    or, whine, Israel, saying,
“God has lost track of me.
    He doesn’t care what happens to me”?
Don’t you know anything? Haven’t you been listening?
God doesn’t come and go. God lasts.
 He’s Creator of all you can see or imagine.
He doesn’t get tired out, doesn’t pause to catch his breath.
    And he knows everything, inside and out.
He energizes those who get tired,
    gives fresh strength to dropouts.
For even young people tire and drop out,
    young folk in their prime stumble and fall.
But those who wait upon God get fresh strength.
    They spread their wings and soar like eagles,
They run and don’t get tired,
    they walk and don’t lag behind.

Isaiah 40:27-31MSG
