Previously, I spoke about the importance of knowing God and how we are powerless without hi.m. I left the scripture in Isaiah 40: 31 for us to meditate upon. It said:
31 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.
In the verse, it says they that wait upon the Lord. Waiting is a process that many of us don’t like. It is frustrating, tedious and unproductive. But what exactly do you do when you wait? Are you just idle or do you prepare for what is to come? Do you thank God for the blessings he is pouring into our lives or is it fixed upon that one goal? Where is your focus? According to the scripture, our focus should be on the Lord and the things he does. He is ever-present, and his Grace covers us daily. Whether we are good or bad or lost. His Grace is for everyone, and we can’t escape that. Acknowledging his Grace is fantastic.
The dictionary definition of Grace is :
Grace is // Grace like a flood – Transformation Church
Let us go back to the verse. As we wait upon the Lord and our strength is renewed, we will be like Eagles. Eagles are the only birds that fly the highest, they are the kings of the air. This means when you are waiting on the Lord, not only will your strength be renewed but, you will be as powerful as Eagles, you will not be weary in what you do; whether you are running or walking for he will be by your side. And this is precisely why resting in God brings so much Joy. Because he doesn’t just give what you ask for but, he gives you more to show you that He is God!
I want you to reflect upon this for some days and think about any situation that you are going through where you need to rest in God. Are you helpless? Hopeless? Lean on God, and he will not forsake you.
