Isaiah 40:31

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 shall walk, and not faint.

 

Waiting is common to all men. There are times in our lives we may need to wait. Whether you are waiting to get married, to get a job or to graduate from school, waiting is never easy. The question we must ask in waiting is; am I waiting on my strength or waiting on God? Am I waiting trusting in my strategies or people i think can help me or I am waiting on only God to make a way?

 

Waiting on the Lord means leaving the problem at His feet and looking away. When we wait on God we trust He is able to handle the situation. No matter how long it might take, no matter the way it might go, my God is in charge and I will not be put to shame.

 

Waiting can be lonely but be rest assured, whoever waits on God concerning any situation is not disappointed. The bible says in Psalm 25:3 “Surely none who wait for You will be put to shame, but those who are faithless without cause will be disgraced.”

 

It is important to know that God is the defender of the righteous. As you choose to wait on the Lord, ask the Holy Spirit to reveal whatsoever that may be a hindrance to God stepping into that situation, repent from them and trust God to forgive.

 

Has that situation proven to be difficult? Have you tried all you can, yet it seems all doors are closed? It is time to hand it over to God and choose to wait on Him.

 

Prayer: Father in this situation (call the situation), I choose to wait on you never let me be put to shame.
