“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.” Isaiah 40:31. Wait. That is not a word that we usually like to hear. When we want…

worship“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.” (Isaiah 40:31 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible.)

Waiting for someone or something is not one of my virtues. In fact it really does grate on my nerves. According to this scripture, waiting on the Lord will renew your strength. After waiting our energy will be renewed so we can run and not become weary and walk and not faint.

There have been times when I felt totally depleted and found myself at His feet. After waiting on the Lord, I felt invigorated. It was worth the wait!

Prayer: Lord, today I fall at Your feet needing strength to go on. Thank You for Your Word that gives me clear direction on how to increase my physical and spiritual stamina. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Waiting

“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; they shall walk, and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).

Someone said that impatience is “waiting in a hurry.” I am prone to do a lot of waiting in a hurry. My stress level rises as each delay and obstacle presents itself. Fretful and tense, I struggle through the day. What a waste! Although it may not be possible to relax amid our stress and chaos, we can rest in God. He has everything under control. What peace can be found when we relinquish our impatience into His Hands.

Prayer: Dear Lord, help us to remember that nothing is ever out of control when You are in control. We wait upon You today. You are our strength. You are our peace.

Payphone or cell phone? MP3 or antique gramophone? Computer screen or chalkboard? No contest. We are a technology generation. It’s great to use, but it fosters impatience. If my internet connection doesn’t open, I can’t post this devotional. Email or text messages beg for my immediate reply. Do I treat prayer the same way? I pray, send a prayer heavenward, and anticipate an instant message reply. Frustration follows when I don’t hear from God. Perhaps he answered with silence, and I missed the message to wait. His delayed response brings patience. Patience strengthens me while I wait.

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, (Isaiah 40:31, Holy Bible, King James).

    Prayer : Lord, I have an abundance of , but I’m short on patience. Strengthen me while I wait. Amen.
