Do you ever feel weary as you wait on the Lord to answer your prayers?
I know I do.
Waiting is one of the most difficult things to do in life. In this fast-paced, instant-everything world, we find it hard to wait.
But God’s word says that when we wait for the Lord, we will gain new strength.
So maybe the waiting isn’t for God to work, but for Him to do a work in us?
Isaiah 40:31 tells us that if we wait upon the Lord, we will rise up with wings like eagles.
Have you ever stood in awe of the majesty of an eagle as it soars?! It is glorious! Not like a little duck that flaps from place to place, but an EAGLE that soars! I wanna soar like an eagle!
Sometimes the trials in our lives seem like never ending marathons. But God says when we wait upon Him, we will run without getting tired and walk without getting weary.
So during those times when we are waiting on the Lord, maybe God is developing a strength and character in use that we never knew we had?
Maybe He has blessings in store for us that we would have never seen if we were not waiting on Him?
One thing I know for sure…when we wait on the Lord and trust in Him at all times, he fills our hearts with a peace that only HE can give.
My encouragement for you today…
If you are going through a difficult time,
If you are waiting for the Lord to answer your prayers,
If you are unsure of your future…
Wait on Him. Trust Him. His timing is perfect.
He give you the strength to soar on wings like Eagles!
May you discover HIS blessings as you wait.
Have a blessed Sunday!
