Isaiah 40:30 to 31 (NIV) ~ Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

What an awesome promise from the Lord! These two verses of Scripture are without doubt personal favorites to many people, who I know could easily recite them, as they have committed them to memory.
 
Even at the beginning of such a powerful cluster of God-inspired sentences, all rich with fruit and anointed of God to minister to your soul, you can find inspiration and hope. Notice if you will, how these two verses of Scripture are different in their tone, yet compliment and flow into each other and fit each other like a glove.
 
Within the first verse from Isaiah 40:30 (NIV), “Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall.” It is as if God is saying, “I know where you are right now, I know that you sometimes feel weary and fall but, take heart, for when you trust in me and put your hope in me and lean on me with your whole heart and soul, I will renew your strength, I will help you soar far above it all, I will help you run and not be weary and walk and not fall, for I am the Everlasting God who does not grow tired or weary and I am here for you.”
 
When you rest upon Jesus, leaning closely upon Him with every fiber of your being, you will find in Him everything you need. Now pause for just a second and try and take in the enormity of such a statement, “In Him” who is your all-Sufficient One, in whom you will find everything you need to keep going from strength to strength. In Him, you will produce much fruit; you will go from strength to strength and soar on wings like eagles to new heights in God.
 
Within the second portion of our text from today in Isaiah 40:31 (NIV) there are to be found four, yes, four amazing personal promises from a covenant-keeping God to you with the word “will” in them, when you put your hope completely in Him.
 
 
1 – (God) Will renew your strengthen,
2 – (So you) Will soar on wings like eagles,
3 – (So you) Will run and not grow weary,
4 – (So you) Will walk and not faint.
 
My friend, today let our text for today minister to every area of your life, let this fruitful cluster of heavenly fruit nourish your heart and soul. Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good. For today God wants to strengthen you, He wants you to soar higher than you have ever gone before, to experience new realms of His glory with an ever-increasing measure. He wants you to take up the baton and run and walk in Him every day with such an intimate walk with Jesus that you will not feel faint, because in Him you will find all you will ever need to be more than a conquer. So be encouraged and uplifted today as you mediate on our text for today in Isaiah 40:30 to 31 (NIV), “Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
 
God bless you my friend, Matthew.
