saiah 40:31 They that wait upon The Lord, shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings of eagles. They shall run and not be weary, walk and not faint.
In today’s instant society, I can’t remember the last time I heard a sermon about waiting on The Lord. There is something so precious about the ways of my parents and those before them…the Christians of yesteryear, knew the value of prayer, not the instant generic prayer we often hear today, but crying out to God for their needs and “waiting” to hear from Him. When we wait upon the Lord, we linger in prayer (conversation with Him) and wait for His answer. Just imagine a conversation face to face with a dear friend or family member…you ask them for something and you can tell they are thinking about it. Do you ever answer for them? You ask the question, then provide your own answer? God wants us to be patient, persistent and trust that He will see us through the tough times. If you kneel when your going through it, He will help you to soar on the other side of it.
