Isaiah 40: 27-31
verses 30-31: Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 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 was the view from the top of the mountain. We worked so hard to get there, yet there were clouds covering most of the view. But we had accomplished our goal, and the joy was in the process, not a single view from the top. God created life on earth to be a challenge for us. It is not always easy, and we are not always rewarded here on earth as we expect to be. In contrast to this life, as great as it can be, God promises us eternal life, soaring with wings like eagles, and running on feet that never grow weary. Hard to believe, but as true as words from Jesus in John 14:2- “if it were not so, I would have told you.” I am comforted knowing I will be safe forever.
Heavenly Father, May I be worthy of the eternal life you have promised me. I am thankful beyond words. Amen
