The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. (Isaiah 40:28)
Isaiah 40 draws a picture of the caring nature of our God- Who is awesome in power, robed in majesty and splendor, Creator of the universe but One who seeks to comfort and help His people. Who “tends His flock like a shepherd” and “gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to His heart.” (40:11) Who strengthens those who are weak and too weary to go on. And when we hope in Him, He renews our strength like the eagles, so we could run and not grow weary, walk and not faint.
