I have two problems with it.  The first, I see no place where the Lord is into transforming 
people into other creatures. That is part of the 'magic' we are trying to get out of DR.  
Second, that verse is used with the WindRider Special Character.  Here is a copy of the 
applicable WR.

7.024
NOT WEARY NOR FAINTING WordRune
WINDRIDER DL 7
(NIV) ISAIAH 40:28c-31
"He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the 
power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 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."
(NIV) ISAIAH 40:28c-31
A WindRider who can recite the NOT WEARY NOR FAINTING WordRune from memory calls on the power of the 
OverLord to grant him an extra +2 in either Self Control {SC}, Agility {AG} or Courage {CO}. The WindRider may choose 
which one. Bonus lasts for one combat (Multiple rounds) May be used once per day.
LO +7 mu SS +7 mu
