Illustrated Faith All Things New | Session 6

open

Hello everyone! Today I’m working on Session 6 of the All Things New devotional kit from Illustrated Faith and DaySpring. You can find my process video at the end of this post and over on my YouTube channel!

31 but they who wait for 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. Isaiah 40:31

When putting together today’s entry, I was sure to leave myself plenty of room to write out a heartfelt prayer because this is a season of waiting for strength and calling on God for strength. If you’ve followed me for a while then you know I’ve had struggles in both my faith and my health for the last year or so.

I’m a very impatient person and am guilty of trying to fix things on my own (raise your hand if you would join my support group for those of us that are like this lol). This verse and devotion remind me that I cannot become strong on my own and the strength that I do have isn’t for me but for serving out God’s plan while I’m here.

One commentary that I found from David Guzik on the Blue Letter Bible app said this about last portion of Isaiah 40:31:

“Notice the order, because it seems strange. First we mount up with wings like eagles. Then we run. Finally we walk. Does it seem out of order? Not at all. First, we recognize that we soar up into heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:6). Then we set ourselves on the course to run the race (Hebrews 12:1). Then we are in the good place to walk the walk (Colossians 2:6).”

I love how commentaries can sometimes help me see things or make connections in a passage that I wouldn’t have made on my own. Of course, commentaries are not to be taken as the Word of God itself, but they can be helpful as you are studying through passages.
