They Who Wait – Beloved Women – November 21, 2019
“But they who wait for 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.”(Isaiah 40:31 ESV)
Waiting seems like the last thing that would give you strength. Many times, when we think of waiting, we think of feeling tired.
However, the Bible tells us that when we “wait for the Lord,” our strength is renewed.
When waiting makes us feel fatigued, it’s because we’re waiting for the wrong things. Are we waiting for the perfect opportunity to arrive or do we believe God can work through any circumstance? Are we waiting for someone in our lives to change or are we willing to see how God can change our own heart?
We’re either waiting on God or we’re waiting on something else. One grants strength and the other does not. If you don’t want to grow weary or faint in your Christian walk, I encourage you to ensure you are waiting on God who is your source of strength in waiting seasons.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the strength and hope that only You provide in seasons of waiting. May I have the focus to place my faith in You no matter what season I’m facing. In Jesus Christ Name, I pray, Amen.
Are you waiting for the perfect opportunity to arrive or do you believe God can work through any circumstance, while you wait?
We don't have to wait for things to be perfect, when we believe God can work through any circumstance.
