There’s a right way and a wrong way to wait. Our heart will be strengthened if we’re waiting right. Psalm 27:13-14 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: […]
God is so big and we are so small, like grasshoppers. Isaiah 40:13 Who hath directed the Spirit of the Lord, or being his counsellor hath taught him? Isaiah 40:22 It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a […]
“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
Paul and Silas were in prison because they healed a woman from a spirit of divination so her master couldn’t make money by her. They weren’t in the prison saying “woe is me” but they were singing praises to God (Acts 16:16-25). James 1:2-3 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers […]
We won’t be waiting patiently if we’re not in a quiet resting place. Waiting patiently is a discipline we have to learn because we are not born patient. Isaiah 32:17-18 And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever. And my people shall dwell in a peaceable […]
Sometimes we think we need grace right now, but God says wait. When we need grace, God will give it. Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Timing is important to God.
We are insignificant like grasshoppers in comparison to God. He sits on the circle of the earth and created the earth. Isaiah 40:21-22 Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth? It is he that sitteth […]
“Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: 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.” (Isa 40:28-31)
