Have you ever noticed the key in this promise from God to empower his people with supernatural strength? I believe it is not a coincidence that Holy Spirit writes how our God never grows weak or weary and then says we have access to the same strength. Here is the key; Holy Spirit writes first“If you will (continually) wait on the Lord until you mount up or soar with Him like an eagle”, spirit to spirit, THEN He will give this strength to you and you may run this race without growing weary; you will walk great distances and never faint. If you will mount up with wings into the realm of God’s presence, you will outrun and out walk even the youth and young men; and might I say regardless of age. In the natural, we would think to walk, then run, then mount up with wings, but that is not how it works. This really reveals to us that our spirit must become stronger than our body or soul.
I believe the Lord is saying it is “Wings First”.Develop wings first in your spirit man to soar above all your personal struggles and all the matters in this world. Then you will find the pleasures of knowing a dynamic relationship with a Triune God. We soar to know and see a greater revelation of His heavenly kingdom. Remember Jesus said to pray His Kingdom would come to earth, as it is in Heaven so let it be on earth. We have been given every spiritual blessing in heavenly places, not only to enjoy God but also to live in such a way every day that we are releasing the virtue of Jesus on the earth. The Kingdom of God is within you and that is where the power to soar begins. We encounter God as we soar through the Open Door, which is the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus is the only Door. He is the only way, the truth, and the life.
Father, in Jesus Name, we want our faith to take wings as we learn to develop strong spirit wings to soar with You. Help us stay fully alive in Your Spirit. We trust, waiting on You that we will never grow weary in running our race. We trust, waiting on you that we can walk through anything without fainting or growing weak. We desire to fulfill our purpose and finish well. We humbly ask for your “amazing enabling grace” to see this promise manifest fully in us for without You we cannot do anything. Help us mount up with “Wings first” soaring into your presence every day.
. Isaiah 40: 28-31 NLV Have you never heard? Have you never understood?
The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth.
He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.
Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion.
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.
NKJ But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
AMP But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him]
Will gain new strength and renew their power;
They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun]; They will run and not become weary,
They will walk and not grow tired. Janee
