I will rise
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
This verse from Isaiah 40:31 is one of my favourite verses. It gives a powerful image. When you watch an eagle soaring in the sky above it looks fantastic, very powerful, full of majesty and beauty. What it must be like to do that. In these verses we read that we can soar on wings like eagles, run and not be weary, walk and not be faint - there is only condition that we must satisfy to enable us to do so - we need to hope in the LORD. This hope is not the kind of wishy-washy hope that it doesnt snow anymore! It is putting everything we are, everything we have, all of our lives in the Lords hands - when we place that kind of hope in the LORD then our strength will be renewed.
As you listen to the song may you know His peace, and may your strength be renewed.
