Walk and Not Faint

The verse on my phone today is Isaiah 40:31

"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."

In order to have my strength renewed, I must hope in the Lord.
The Archaic definition of hope is "to have confidence; trust."

And that renewing, the result of our trust will be like soaring on wings, running without getting fatigued, walking without being feeble.

Or another definition of the word "faint" is "Lacking conviction, boldness, or courage".

So another way to see this result of our trust, this walking and not fainting, is
our walk with God will be full of His conviction, His boldness and His courage in us!

Just one little verse that I have heard or read dozens of times, and yet today, He shed new light on it for me. He is amazing. He intrigues me daily...I don't ever want to not seek Him fully again!

  1. I feel the same way!! I have always been a believer, but I had never really given my life to him until a few years ago. I don't ever want to lose the relationship & the knowledge that I have now! What an honor and a blessing.
