Unstoppable! – Isaiah 40:28-31

energizer-bunny“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31, NLT).

Isaiah reminds us that God is the Creator and His Being is everlasting and immeasurable. So, God Himself never grows weak or weary; rather He gives His power and strength to those who are weak and powerless.

And, even young people don’t have as much energy and strength as those who trust in the Lord, according to Isaiah.

Trusting God means waiting upon Him to act according to His plans and purposes instead of taking things into our own hands (see 8:17).

And, when you trust God and wait for Him to work things His way, then you will be energized–even exhilarated!

Isaiah said trusting God is like soaring to great heights like eagles or running and not getting winded or walking for a long distance and never tiring out.

When you trust God, you can just keep on going and going and going. Like the Energizer Bunny, you are unstoppable!

“Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ.” (1 Peter 4:11, NLT)

  1. I think in part trusting in the Lord energizes us because we don’t spend as much time worrying. Our minds are freed up to focus on what He would have us focus on.

    • Good point, Shelly, I completely agree. How much of our energy is used up when it’s turned inward to ourselves rather than flowing outward to God? We could probably “save energy” if we quit worrying, let go, and let God.
