In the larger context of Isaiah 40 (in which the passage cited in the question appears), God is telling Isaiah to offer words of comfort to the southern kingdom of Judea and its capital city of Jerusalem, because the previous afflictions or punishments that they have received from God have (in God's view) doubly paid for their past transgressions. Although they have been figuratively beaten down by those punishments, with God's help they will not only once again "renew their strength" (that is, once again receive the strength to rise from their fallen condition), but they will actually walk, run, and even metaphorically soar as eagles by rectifying their former misconduct, and by once again obeying God, as well as by hoping and trusting in Him for a better future.
