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.


10 For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth.

11 For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.

12 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:

13 And not as Moses, which put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:

14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.

15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.

16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.

17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

Here are the verses from Isaiah 40:31 (NIV) and 2 Corinthians 3:10-17 (NIV):

Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)

“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

2 Corinthians 3:10-17 (NIV)

“10 For what was glorious has no glory now in comparison with the surpassing glory. 11 And if what was transitory came with glory, how much greater is the glory of that which lasts!

12 Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold. 13 We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face to prevent the Israelites from seeing the end of what was passing away. 14 But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. 15 Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. 16 But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”

Encouragement: The verse from Isaiah 40:31 reminds us of the strength and renewal that come from placing our hope in the Lord. When we trust in God, we receive the strength to endure, run our race without growing weary, and walk without fainting. It’s a beautiful promise of God’s sustaining power for those who look to Him.

In 2 Corinthians 3:10-17, Paul speaks about the surpassing glory of the new covenant in Christ. He contrasts the fading glory of the old covenant, symbolized by Moses’ veiled face, with the enduring and liberating glory found in Christ. Through Christ, the veil is lifted, and we experience freedom in the Spirit.

As you meditate on these scriptures, be encouraged to place your hope in the Lord, knowing that He provides strength and endurance. Recognize the surpassing glory of the new covenant in Christ, where veils are removed, and freedom is found in the Spirit. May these truths guide you in your journey of faith today.
