Soaring Like Eagles – Isaiah 40:29-31
Here is another illustration from Isaiah to describe God’s comfort and hope. When life is crushing us, God provides for us, giving his power and energy to those of who are tired and week. We often try to bring our own strength and energy to our challenges. We know how this ends, with exhaustion, burn-out and being totally depleted. God promises to renew our strength, giving power to soar, like eagles.
He does this as we wait on Him with patient expectation. It takes time and discipline to surrender our wishes and actions to God. As you trust and surrender to Him your challenging situation, He is ready to strengthen you – in body, mind and spirit. So tuck into Him as a young one seeking shelter, so He may cover you with His wings, protect you and strengthen you to soar once again, in His time. Have you asked for His power to strengthen you today?
