But those who wait on 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.
Every Christians life must be dedicated to God. Dedication to God is the most important step in a Christian life. Waiting for God to work in the life of a believing Christian is crucial to the life of Faith we live in Christ Jesus our Lord and Saviour.
We see in the Bible that the Patriarchs have all gone through troubled waters but have lived a life of Faith and God Almighty Himself has testified for it.
Abraham the Father of Faith had waited on the Lord for His promise to come to pass
in His life. God promised to give Abraham a child when Abraham was old in Genesis 13 and said He will come in the appointed time of child bearing. He visited him as promised in Genesis 21 and Sarah bore Issac. The Bible gives account for Abraham that he believed in God and it was accounted to Him for righteousness.
Though time may tarry but God in His goodness and mercy will bring to pass His Word.
Joseph son of Jacob was given visions by God of his greatness to come. but the things he had to encounter in his youth would have given him a different dimension. Joseph was put in a pit by his brethren because of Jealousy and then sold to the ishmaelites, then taken to the house of pottiphar the Egyptian. Joseph was then accused of something that he didn’t commit and was thrown into prison until God had lifted him to be prince of Egypt.
As the patriarch’s waited on the Lord and believed in His promises, they were honoured and exalted beyond measure.
The Psalmist says in Psalms 25:5 :
Lead me in Your truth and teach me,
For You are the God of my salvation;
On You I wait all the day.
in Psalms 37:7
Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
In Lamentations we read in 3:25
The Lord is good to those who wait for Him,
To the soul who seeks Him.
Waiting on the Lord will move God and bring every blessing in our Lives. In waiting wait for Him. He will make us give us the wings of eagles to soar high in all that we are and that we do.
God bless you.
