I once heard a worship pastor share at a summer camp about the concept of Isaiah 40:30-31. He beautifully stated how it is easy to have amazing spiritual encounters with God in our “mountaintop moments” when we “soar on wings like eagles.” However, the most valuable time that we should remember is the daily walking with the Lord.

This message really stuck with me. In a Christian culture that so often places our closeness to God based on feelings or big experiences, Isaiah 40 reminds us of the closeness of our Savior in the mundane of the everyday as we walk with Him.

Have you described your life or situation with one of these adjectives lately? Tired, exhausted, worn out, done, spent, out of energy, or burned out? The Lord reminds us that even young people become tired and weary. When we are in worn out places, the enemy knows that we are more vulnerable to attack. Notice the sentence following, “Young men stumble and fall.” 

In what area of your life are you weary right now? It is important that we do not take that lightly. An area of weariness can easily lead to sin if we are not careful. In our weaknesses, the Devil can accomplish his purposes in our lives, or we can hope in the Lord. When we place our hope in the Lord, He renews our strength. This is why it is so vital for us to be daily seeking God. He is pursuing us constantly, but we have to make the choice to receive the strength that He has to offer us.
