But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
We all become weary. In fact, if you never feel like giving up, your dreams are too small. If you never feel like quitting, you need to set some larger goals. When that pressure comes to be discouraged and to think you can’t take it anymore, that’s completely normal. Every person feels that way at times.
In today’s Scripture, Isaiah was saying, “There is a way to get your second wind and to run and not be weary.” What is it? Wait on the Lord. Hope in the Lord. That doesn’t mean to sit around and be passive, complacent. The right way to wait is to give God praise, to talk about His greatness, to go through the day expecting Him to turn it around, not complaining, not discouraged. As you wait, God will breathe a second wind into your spirit—strength, energy, passion, vision, and vitality. You won’t just come out the way you were. You will come out on wings like eagles. You will come out stronger, higher, better off than you were before.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for Your promise that as I wait upon You, You will renew my strength with a second wind and enable me to rise up with wings like an eagle. Help me to shake off my weariness and take hold of Your strength. I declare that I am coming out stronger, higher, and better off. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
