Isaiah 40:31 “But those who wait on the Lord, shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”
When we take a look at it, we wait often times in lines for many things. We wait for:
- The person in the car in front of us at an intersection to take off when the light has already turned green.
- The bank teller to call use to the window for our transaction.
- The person in front of us at a drive up ATM to finish their transaction.
- Our doctor or dentist.
- The person in front of us at the grocery store that is in the 12 items or less line that has way more than 12 items.
In general we often have to wait to receive something.
And so it is also true that we wait on God. The good thing about waiting on God is, His timing is always perfect, and what we receive from God always for our good.
Many times people want to rush God into doing what they want God to do. God is a on time God, period.
Isaiah 40:31 describes what will be received when a person waits on the Lord:
- Strength that is renewed, and possibly better than the original strength a person had.
- Once they have received renewed strength, they are able to soar with wings like an eagle.
- Unlimited strength, and endurance to run and not be weary.
- Strength to walk without fainting.
When we wait on the Lord, we are showing that we are trusting Him.
Proverbs 3:5 and 6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; Vs 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.”
When we wait on the Lord, we are displaying our faith in Him that he knows what is best for us, and that he will always act in our best interest, and we don’t have to see it to believe it.
2nd Corinthians 5:7 “For we walk by faith and not by sight.”
When we wait on the Lord, we display our belief that He has a reward for us.
Hebrews 11:6 “For he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”
Abba Father, thank for Your perfect timing and the multiple blessing that are received when we wait on You, in Jesus name…Amen!
Continuing in His service…Rev
