Strength in Waiting

But they who wait for 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 40:31 CEV)

There is strength in waiting. Not a passive waiting, but an expectant attitude of faith. As we learn to wait on God to fulfill His purposes for us, especially during the difficult times, our own strength is renewed. That strength is likened to that of the eagle, whose wings allow it to rise above the storm. “But they who wait for 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.” But when we try to bring about His purposes in our own strength, we become weary and faint. I find my own strength renewed not as I plan and fret, but as I hope and trust in Him. Is God asking you to wait? You’re in good company because your strength will be renewed and everyone watching will witness the change. Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD! (Psalm 27:14 NKJV).
