Why did Isaiah use word “youths” in chapter 40:30 what is his meaning?

Isa. 40:28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.

Isa. 40:29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

Isa. 40:30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

Isa. 40:31 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.

The time setting of these verses in at the end of the age. All can get a lesson from these verses, Christian and Holy Remnant alike, though the setting is actually for the Holy Remnant.

Without God’s protection and providence, we are nothing. We may think we have youth on our side, but the times will be so hard and seem like it will go on forever, we will not have the stamina to get through these times if the Lord didn’t take care of us. God will “renew their strength” because they will be on their last leg so to speak.
