A message which God imparted through the prophet Isaiah was the revelation of a tireless God and a tireless manhood (40:28-31). Here the creator proclaimed Himself to be one who "fainteth not, neither is weary," and those who serve Him as invigorated by their Maker. "They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength," the message ran. "They shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

The fact that one's strength is in proportion to his spirituality is reiterated by Mary Baker Eddy in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" where she admonishes students of Christian Science (p. 254): "Watch, pray, demonstrate. Released from materialism, you shall run and not be weary, walk and not faint." Mrs. Eddy was released from materialism by her discovery that life and intelligence are not in matter, but have their source in God, inexhaustible divine Mind. The tirelessness of her efforts to save mankind from sinful mortal sense, to still pain, purify consciousness, and reveal Truth companioned the unselfed nature of her motives. Her unwearied inspiration mirrored her unity with divine Love.
