Isaiah 40:28-31 NIV
28 Do you not know?

The Lord is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of the ends of the earth.

    and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
    and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
    and young men stumble and fall;
31 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.
