Soar in Me


Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,
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.

—Isaiah 40:28-31



Have you heard in your heart that the everlasting God, who created the earth and created you, never faints or grows weary? The all-powerful Creator, who created you and has always known you, became as you are so you can have a relationship with Him and know Him intimately. His understanding was unsearchable. But now, Jesus has torn the veil that separated us from Him, and we can know God, the Creator of all that is good, as our Abba Father. 


Before you received the love of Jesus by faith, your spiritual eyes and ears were closed to the things of God (Ephesians 2:8, Matthew 13:15). Your knowledge of Him was veiled. But when you believed in Jesus as your Savior, the mystery of God hidden from you was no longer hidden (Colossians 1:26). Your Father wants to give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in your knowledge of Him. He wants to enlighten your understanding so that you may know the hope of the new life He has given you, the riches of your inheritance, and the greatness of His power toward us who believe (Ephesians 1:17-19).


The revelation of the knowledge of God is now just waiting for you to ask and receive; to seek and find. If you knock the door of understanding will open to you (Matthew 7:7).


Are you seeking the understanding of God with all your heart? The enemy is terrified you will spiritually see with God’s eyes and hear with His ears, understand with your heart, and be healed (Matthew 13:15). As you grow to understand the love of God revealed to you in Christ, the enemy’s attempts to destroy you are more easily defeated. You grow to understand the strength the Lord gives to the weak and your authority to exercise His power over all the power of the enemy (Luke 10:19). You receive a revelation of the resurrection power you have received in Christ. 


Even though those young in the faith may grow weary—even though the spiritually immature may utterly fail, you will not grow weary or fail when you have the spiritual maturity to know His authority in your life. You will prosper just as your soul prospers (3 John 2:1). God fully stands behind the power of His Word with the authority He has given you. He is the Word (John 1:1). When you speak the Word you have believed in your heart, you speak His power into your life. You receive blessings instead of curses, health instead of sickness, peace instead of fear, joy instead of mourning, and His beauty for the ashes of your once despairing life.


The word “wait” in Isaiah 40:31 does not speak about someone waiting as though they are sitting idle just looking for the Lord to do something. Rather, the “waiting” here is talking about “waiting” like a waiter who constantly seeks to meet the needs of his customers. Those who wait and look to the Lord for their strength will never faint. They will draw on His limitless strength.

The Hebrew word, QAVAH, in Isaiah 40:31, is translated as “wait.” It means “to bind together (perhaps by twisting), i.e. collect; (figuratively) to expect” (Strong’s Concordance). 


As we grow in our understanding of who we are in Jesus, we “bind” ourselves more closely to Him. He replaces the limitations of our human strength with His limitless strength. Because we know and trust Him, we "expect" Him to meet our needs and guide us in life.


An eagle soars on currents of air without using its wings. It glides on the power of the wind and not on its own strength. It can ride those currents for hours with little or no effort. Those who wait on the Lord are like the eagle, moving on the flow of the Holy Spirit and not their own effort. They can outlast others who are stronger or more talented and who do what they do in their own strength or ability.

Do you soar in life? Are the things that attempt to steal your joy, kill your faith, and destroy your life beneath your feet? You must “know” intimately the One who has given you His life. He hides nothing from you. He renews your strength with His strength. He lifts you in His power. You do not grow weary or faint.

What is your doubt—that one question? Have you not seen or heard? Your Father does not grow weary. He is in you—sustaining, empowering, guiding, and overcoming.

You are Mine,” Jesus says. “Find Me. Soar in Me.”
