Faint Not


Written by Regenia B.


Isaiah 40:28-31

When studying the Word of God, I think about the spiritual meaning and applying His Word to my life and how to help others. After all, God's Word is the Book which gives life.

28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.

*** Do we not know, or have we not heard, that the eternal God who has no beginning nor end, is Creator, rightful owner and ruler of all. He is never weary from his toil nor does he faint. His wisdom and understanding are infinite (never exhausted). Psalms:147:5

O the depth of the knowledge of God. Romans 11:33

29 He giveth power to the faint (weak); and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

Our spiritual power as believers comes from God our source through His Holy Spirit.

Many out of their bodily weakness is recovered and made strong. Many feeble in spirit, faint hearted, unfit for service and sufferings are strengthened in the inward man.

Those that are sensible of their weakness and ready to acknowledge they have no might God does increase strength. For when we are weak in ourselves, then we are strong in the Lord.

30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

These left to themselves, these that are youngest and stronger. Those who trust in their own sufficiency and are so confident, they never seek God for His grace. These are youths and young men who are strong but think themselves stronger than they are. They shall faint, and be weary and shall fail in their service, conflicts, and under burdens.

31 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.

This is those who truly trust Him with their lives. Because He is our help and grace in time of need.

Here in this verse we see His promises to those that wait on Him.

#1. Promise of God's strength to revive us in the midst of exhaustion and weakness of suffering and trial. Man is weak within himself and can be exhausted. God's grace is sufficient. He strengthens us to do work, to labor, to wrestle, to resist and to bear.

#2. He promises we shall rise above our difficulties like an Eagle that soars to the sky.

The wings of an Eagle are strong, and he flies swiftly. Strengthened by divine grace.

Just as the soul shall ascend above the world to the heavenly. The Soul must be lifted up. Psalms 25:1

#3. Promises that we shall run spiritually without tiring and walk forward without fainting. This would be constantly and with perseverance. They shall mount up, run and walk.

We must move forward in the Lord and be content in whatever direction He takes us.

God promises He will provide His people whatever is needed to sustain them constantly. For we are kept (protected) by His power through faith. The same way we are saved through faith. A living faith in Christ. It is only through our source, which is God that we are renewed and may continue in this faith.

When one has a terminal sickness or disorder in the physical body and it looks as most hope is gone, if they know the Lord, they can give this issue over to the Lord, if they truly know him. First one must realize that God’s will for them is most important and they must be willing to accept whatever God allows them in this life. This is over half of the battle, accepting God’s will.

The battle may be rough, that we have to fight, but we cannot do it alone. We need our Lord’s support to get us through or to overcome here on this earth. Many times a person fights the battle, but the body becomes weary and they faint and give way. This may be God’s will also, and we must be willing to accept. Just remember the overcomer that passes from this world to the heavenly still lives, and they that remain here in this world shall continue on as the Lord sees fit. The battle truly belongs to the Lord!

We see here three stages of growth:

#1. The young Christian mounts up.

#2. The adult Christian runs.

#3. The mature Christian walks.
