"...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." Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)
Have you ever wanted to quit, give up, bail out, toss in the towel? Isaiah 40 is for you.
Isaiah 40 contains one of the most beautiful expressions in all of the Bible about the power and nature of God. Why does Isaiah talk about this? Because our ability to last through the storms comes from Him who makes and calms the storms, our ability to endure through the long wait comes from Him who has been here forever. God's word stands forever.
When you hope, you will last! That is the promise that God makes to us in these verses. Your strength will renew.
You’ll soar - like an eagle. Renewed strength is the ability to dream again. You’ll run - and not be weary. Renewed strength is the ability to strive again. You’ll walk - and not faint. Renewed strength is the ability to endure again.
Family discussion question: What are you having a hard time waiting for right now?
Children’s Activity: Emphasize the words soar, run and walk with your kids by reading the verse and picking them up to “soar” when you read soar, running when you read run and walking when you read walk. Read it several times until they or you are worn out.
