PROMISE WORD #02 : Wait for the Lord!

He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength.  Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, But those who wait on 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 40:29-31

YES! WAIT FOR GOD! He will strengthen you and give you power! His ways are amazing! He has the best plans for you! Run to Him and He will make you courageous! He will sustain you in all aspects of your life. Stay focused in Christ! Be blessed! 

James gives us examples that spur us on to patience. First, we must understand some of the basic rules of farming (James 5:7). A farmer does not continually dig up the seed he has planted in order to check its growth—if he did so, he would never have a harvest. Likewise, we must trust God’s timing in our lives. Just as the farmer waits for His crop, we must wait on God to complete His work in our lives. This takes patience! James goes on to tell us that even Job had to endure a fierce trial. However, he knew that God had a wonderful plan for his life, and he refused to deny the Lord.

There will be times when we feel like we are in a holding pattern in our lives. We long to move away from our difficulties, but God wants us to wait and to learn how to be patient. If you find yourself feeling impatient with your circumstances, look up into the glorious face of the Savior who loves you and has a great reward for you.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, You are sovereign. As I wait on Your work in my life, I pray You would bring to mind opportunities and ways that I might serve You with honor. I desire to show my faithfulness in this time of waiting. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.
