Food For Thought: Waiting

Saturday-July 16, 2011

Isa. 40:31 but those who wait for 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.

I used to say that I had no expectations. How stupid. Hope is expectation. If I don’t expect anything from God what is the purpose of waiting on Him. If you cho0se to wait (and I pray that you do) then you should expect to receive something, otherwise you are just waiting in vain. And if your heart is true, God will not let you wait in vain. That’s what I believe.

Ps 40:1-3 I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the desolate pit, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord.
