In reading Isaiah 40:31 The Lord stills us to wait upon him. We grow strength in waiting on the Lord and following his plan. His plan isn't always our plan and I see that clearly now in older years of life. I have God faithful to answer my prayers and even who me why some were not answered the way I thought. Wait isn't a word is like in some cases of life.
Psalm 27:14 King James Version (KJV)
Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
RENEW MY STRENGTH ~
I like reading to wait on the Lord, because I know he will handle it. It's not just about waiting, but to be of good courage and God will strengthen your heart. A friendly reminder of what God is doing daily in lives. We must keep hope alive and soar far above it all. Our own thoughts make such a difference.
Isaiah 40:31 New International Version (NIV)
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
WAIT A MINUTE ~
1 Corinthians 15:58 King James Version (KJV)
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
WAIT ~ BE STEADFAST
Never doubt that your life makes a difference. Each of us have gone through things of life and we have a choice to become a better person or bitter. Life is way to short to get stuck on things that aren't important. The devil wants to take you away from God's plan and destroy any hope of you living in true freedom in God.
Hebrews 10:24-25 New International Version (NIV)
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
My thoughts and prayers continue for you, your family and friends. I know that some days of life are great, others are hard or there is a fine mixture of both in lives daily. Be encouraged today that God hears you and sometimes waiting is good for us. Leaning to God and keeping peace while going through things. Nobody said that life was easy anyway, but it can be a challenge to keep your eyes upon the Lord, but you can do it. Keep your mindset on what God says and hold on to the truth. The Bible says that the truth will set your free. Purpose this a good day.
