Isa. 40:31 reminds me that I can hope in the Lord when I face difficulties. When I wait upon the Lord and rest in Him, He will renew my strength so that I can rise above my challenges and not grow weary, just like how the eagles soar on their wings instead of busily flapping their wings.
In the Old Testament, God describes the Promised Land as “a land flowing with milk and honey” (Exod. 3:8; Num. 14:8; Deut. 31:20; Ezk. 20:15), which is a beautiful graphical way of highlighting the agricultural richness of the land. God brought His people out of slavery in Egypt to a prosperous land of freedom, blessing and the knowledge of the Lord.
