“But they who 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).

Waiting is never wasted energy. Waiting is a type of experience which brings you together with the object of your waiting. As you wait, you constantly seek more of the experience and the experience gives you understanding developing a creative mind that allows you to know. You become one with Him and cease from your personal quest and become more desirous of Him.

Your waiting changes form and become a practical experience for growth, faith, new life, and such as God desires for those who walk upright and keep His commandments. Strength comes due to the exchange of self for Him and nothing is lost.

“And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life” (Matthew 19:29).

“…for he who comes to God, must believe that He is a rewarder (giver) of them who diligently (constantly) seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6).

Raise the level of your expectation and you will receive more of every thing. Waiting is expecting. The Hebrew word for waiting is “qavah” which has the meaning of binding together by twisting and to expect. The powerful faint sometimes and even fall, but they that wait upon the Lord do not encounter the same affect.

These are they who continue to go forward bypassing those things that cause strain for others and never striking out! Your level of expectation will cause you to win trusting in the God of your Salvation and forever looking to the Cross of Christ.

Trust God and wait for Him in every decision, choice, adventure, opportunity, investment and know that He will direct your path. Even in your disappointments, wait for Him. He will lift you up, out and above.

“Wait on the Lord, be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your hear, wait, I say, on the Lord” (Psalms 27:14). There is no need to rush!

“But you, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory, and the lifter up of my head” (Psalms 3:3). It is He who bring all things to pass.
