Roy’s Blog: “On Eagles Wings”

Isaiah 40:31 “Those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles; they will run and not get tired; they will walk and not become weary.”

Isaiah’s generation faced devastating days. They were carried away from their homes and lived in exile in a foreign country. The were enslaved and treated harshly. They eventually caved in emotionally and spiritually. They “burned out” centuries before that phrase was even coined.

The book of Isaiah (chapter 40 verse 31) shows a way out of such emptiness. Isaiah 40:29 says “He gives strength to the weary…”

Are you running on “empty”? Are you weary and tired all the time? Do you go to bed exhausted and get up the same way in the morning? Have you become quiet, sullen, or even withdrawn? Does God seem remote, disinterested? Does the Bible just not seem to make sense to you?

The world will pull you further and further away from God. Maybe you’ve given in to that every day bombardment of worldly things and need to come back toward God. If you’re tired, emotionally and spiritually drained, turn back toward God. He will renew your strength.

He will give you purpose and you will soar on wings like eagles.
