Isaiah 40:31
(Translated directly from Hebrew into modern English)


But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint (KJV).

Listen to this passage in Hebrew.


31.  v'-qo-vei YHVH ya-kha-li-fu kho-akh ya-a-lu e-ver kan-sha-rim ya-ru-tzu v'-lo yi-ga-u yel-ku v'-lo yi-a-fu

Eagles fly high above all other birds. They can see things that other animals cannot. They are proud, powerful, feared and beautiful. They can see fire and storms coming from far away. They can see food from far off.

Humans don't grow wings and fly. When we can see the WHOLE picture, we do not worry about the storms because we can see the end if we fly high enough. We don't worry about the food because we can see it from so far away. When we twist and bind our lives together with God, we see the big picture and do not worry or want for anything. If we know that God is in control, then we do not get scared when things go wrong because we know how they will turn out.

Place your cursor over the underlined words on the left for an explanation.


Those who twist and bind their lives together with God will regenerate their strength with ease. They will soar high above the low places as if they had wings like eagles. They will be renewed and regenerated and will be able to see the big picture. They will move fluidly and with ease in their walk with Him without becoming exhausted. They will live their lives with Him and never tire of their relationship.
