“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.”
Stress is nothing new. Noah had it when he was building the ark with no rain in sight. Martha had it when she was preparing a meal for our Lord. Stress is the gap between the demands placed on us and the strength we have in meeting those demands. It is not a sin to be stressed, nor a sin to be weary. It is a sin, though, not to seek a reduction of that stress which tears down the temple of the Holy Spirit, your body. Where is your answer? In waiting upon the Lord — waiting in the midst of demands.
When you learn to wait on Him, God steps in to bridge the stress gap with His mighty strength.
The believer who is living through difficult trial continues to praise God because he/she knows that “all things work together for the good of them that love the Lord who are the called according to his purpose.”
Thus we are admonished to wait, pray and praise, God will work it out.
When we wait on the Lord, we put it all in his hands and then praise him in advance for the victory.
That’s why Isaiah 40:31 says, “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”. If we wait on the Lord, he will work it out! Amen!
