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."
- Eagles have a seven-foot wingspan. Once in flight, the long broad wings are ideal for hours of soaring over the countryside. Eagles use moving air currents to make travel effortless and quick. During a good journey, they will seldom flap their wings.
I've had times in my life when God carried me through some tough situations. When I read this verse I thought of those times. My strength was renewed, God carried me; I soared on wings like eagles. God is indeed faithful to His promises.
