Waiting on God


they that wait upon the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not be weary, they will walk and not be faintโ€ (Isaiah 40:31).

What does wait on the Lord means?

It means that we are going to be patient, we are not going to calculate in our head what is, when is, where is and how is.

In our waiting on God we will not complain, we will worship and praise God. And when we wait on God, we will be able to soar on wings like eagles, we will run and not be weary, we will walk and not faint. That my friend is what waiting looks like.

I get it I have found myself trying to calculate things especially these last couple of months. I was in a dry season that season was one I have never experienced before. Many times, I have read this scripture, but I have to say that during my dry season the Lord showed me exactly what waiting on God looks like.

I am so thankful that God has not given up on me. So, I say to you whatever your circumstance is stop complaining about it. Talk to God about it. Then wait on Him. And while you are waiting, worship, praise His name and continue to pray. He will give you the strength you need. He will restore your joy. Keep trusting in God. And before you know it you will see yourself soaring just like an eagle, your walking will become smoother, and your running will not tire you out.

Lord, you know each of us. As humans we hate to wait. We struggle with waiting; Lord teaches us to wait on you. When it gets difficult for us, and we feel we want to do it our way. Lord, I ask that you pull us back and have us sit still. Cover us Lord with your mighty hand. Saturate us with your love. In the Mighty name of Jesus Christ, I pray. AMEN

  1. Amen ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ. I love the flying eagle, such a magnificent bird with such strength, stamina and grace. We can learn so much about our Christian journey from our understanding of the eagle. God is good as we trust him while we wait. The wait is a part of the test and our attitude during these seasons determine our altitude. Bless you. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ

    I remember listening to Phil when I first became a Christian. I am telling my age for sure now. I also listened to Sandy Patti too.

    You are welcome my friend. Waiting is so hard I hate the fact that I struggle with it. But you know what? God is working through us all in this area. That I believe with all my heart.

    Yes, He is so good. I am at AWE of how amazing He is. I do not know how He blesses us when we are not always faithful.


  11. Wow, Yes, He doesโค๏ธโœจ I feel the same wayโ€ฆ.so short of what He has called me to be. Please keep me in your ๐Ÿ™ prayers because I want to fulfill the plan that He has for me and I need His supernatural strength to do so, I cannot do it without Him. I am keeping you and your ministry in my prayers. I said a prayer for you earlier๐Ÿค—โœจ๐Ÿ’•Thank you so much, Jessica

    Most Definitely Jessica say a prayer for you tonight. Remember we have the hope of Christ within us. ๐Ÿ™

  13. Waiting…especially when Heaven appears silent…sits us in a classroom to develop patience and trust. I don’t like it, but neither do I like medicine…though it’s good for me. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  14. desirayl says:

    I know right โœ…๏ธ Sitting in the classroom is what we must do. End result is more than we can imagine.
