Watch the Services Facebook –Deerfoot Disciples You Tube: Deerfoot Church of Christ @10:30 am on Sunday Morning @5 pm on Sunday Afternoon @6:30 pm on Wednesday Night By: Tim Shoemaker The Unwearied Runner In Isaiah the fortieth chapter Isaiah speaks to the nation of Israel about God’s infinite power and wisdom especially in contrast to the idols worshiped by the nations around them. In addressing Israel Isaiah twice introduces his comments by say- ing, “Have you not known? Have you not heard?” (Isa. 40:21, 28). It is after the latter of these two verses that we read, “Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, 31 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.”There is a beautiful song (“Teach me Lord to Wait”) that incorporates a portion of this Scripture. There is much in this passage that we need to learn. First of all we are taught that there is the certainty of weari- ness and decay for Isaiah tells us that “even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall.” All physical life, in the very act of living tends to decay and death. We may not like it but it is a reality of life. If we are blessed with a long life we all will pass through three stages, growth, maturity and decay. These stages pass in rapid succession. Peter declared in his first general epistle, “All flesh is as grass, And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, And its flower falls away” (1 Pet. 1:24). Long before the forces of decay begin to work in the natural life, labor, sorrow and responsibility make one weary and ready to faint. Many people become “burned out” and leave their work and that includes several preachers. In the Bible we read of those who were faithful men of God who became dis- couraged and were ready to quit. Elijah was one such. Elijah had put his life on the line in challenging the prophets of Baal to determine who was the true God, Baal or Jehovah. It was Jehovah who answered the prayer of Elijah and sent fire to consume his sacrifice. The people responded by falling on their faces and crying out, “The LORD, He is God! The LORD, He is God!” Everything seemed good until Jezebel threatened to kill Elijah and caused Elijah to flee for his life. God came to Elijah and questioned him as to what he was do- ing. Elijah then answered God saying, “I have been very zeal- ous for the LORD God of hosts; for the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with the sword. I alone am left; and they seek to take my life” (1 Kings 19:10). Elijah felt that all of his work and been in vain, that he had made no difference and he was ready to quit. The same type of thing had happened to Jeremiah. He had preached God’s word to the people to encourage them to turn back to God but he was repaid by the people trying to kill him, accusing him of being a traitor to his nation. Again it seemed to Jeremiah as if all his labor for God had been in vain and so he was ready to quit. In Jeremiah 20:9 we read, “I will not make mention of Him, Nor speak anymore in His name." But His word was in my heart like a burning fire Shut up in my bones; I was weary of holding it back, And I could not.” -to be continued To our Deerfoot Family, David and I can not thank everyone enough for all the love shown to us since moving here. But we are especially thankful for the prayers and thoughts since Jennifer’s diagnosis. She is doing well, there are still challenges but with prayer we will get through these too.
