XXX. Isa 40:30
1. "Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:"
2. Youth is characterized by strength (Pro 20:29).
A. Children have nearly limitless energy, but even they eventually run out of steam.
B. Young men can outwork old men, but they too, in due time, will faint.
3. Youth is also characterized by confidence that will eventually be broken (Ecc 11:9-10).
A. Youths, in their foolish pride, rage and are confident (Pro 14:16).
B. This confident pride leads to their fall (Pro 16:18; Pro 18:12; Pro 29:23).
C. For this reason young men need to be exhorted to be sober minded (Tit 2:6 c/w Rom 12:3).
4. To prevent falling into sin and destruction, young men should seek their Creator in the days of their youth (Ecc 12:1).
A. It is good that a man bear God's yoke in his youth (Lam 3:26-27).
B. If young men have the word of God abiding in them, they are truly strong and will not fall into temptation (1Jo 2:14 c/w Psa 119:9).
5. Though even the young shall faint and be weary, it will not be so for those who wait on the Lord (Isa 40:31).
