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 (ESV)
I often wrestle with waiting. I get so impatient. I have things to do and places to be. And waiting, well that’s when all the negative thinking starts to play in my head. If I can just stay busy, I don’t have to face my issues. But waiting on God can be a time of renewal, a time of reenergizing ourself in the presence of God. It is communing with Him and gaining strength and courage from knowing more about His power and love available for our life. When we truly understand this, waiting transforms into anticipation. That’s because the root word of waiting is “ambush.” When we comprehend the depths to which God wants to renew us, it builds in us anticipation that God has something wonderful in store for us and we eagerly wait ready to pounce on it. As children we were ready to ambush our presents on Christmas morning. How much more should we wait eagerly for God to meet all our needs, to direct our paths, to give us the peace that passes all understanding, to lavish us with His love. Today, take courage, be hopeful and wait on the Lord.
Dear Father, I come waiting, anticipating all the good that You have for me. Renew my strength, encourage my heart, fill me with Your peace. Today, I will wait on You.
