Dr. Stacie, a powerful advocate for using the Word of God in daily life, goes by the guiding scripture taken from Isaiah 40:13 King James Version. “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.”
