Word: 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
Thought: May of us might have this word in memory and we even might have advised friends in trouble, but when it comes to our life, do we really wait upon the Lord. Is our life embedded with the plan and way of God or do you struggle and toil in our own ways before aligning to His way? In the times of trouble, even before it strikes do we try to run away and get hit or get entangled by running in the wrong direction, before looking up on the Lord to deliver us. Waiting in the Lord is a daily walk, in EVERYTHING when we wait upon the Lord, He will help us soar high to mount up your wings as eagles and fly above and beyond your circumstances, fly away from your problem and fly upwards towards the mountaintop. Also, He ensures to increase the tail wind (circumstances for) and reduce the head wind (circumstances against) , so even when we run (through the problem) we do not go weary, since we will have a easy run, rather than running against and toiling making us grow weary and to faint.
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to wait upon you, that I might rise above the problem or go through it with ease. Amen.
