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 they shall walk, and not faint.
Does God have you in a waiting place? Do you see a major need in a ministry, and would like to begin. You have the knowledge and the desire, yet God has said-WAIT. The need appears urgent, but as a woman of faith you realized that you see things from a skewed and limited perspective. Unlike the all knowing and almighty God. He not only sees things clearly, He sees the future. He knows what’s ahead for you and all those involved. So you must wait.
Throughout God’s Word we find situations where He requested for people to wait for Him. For those who refused and went ahead, the results were sometimes disastrous.
There have been times when I rushed ahead of God. My experience did not produce an Ishmael situation, like it did for Sarah and Abraham, when they failed to wait upon the Lord for their promised heir. Still I was disobedient, and the results were disappointing.
Perhaps we can learn a treasured lesson-“God’s Timing is Perfect”. In fact He is more focused on timing than time. His desire is to perfect you and mold you into the image of Christ, and He’s not in a hurry. He wants more for you, more than you can possibly imagine-and that is why He says WAIT.
Anything we do in the flesh, without the surpassing power of God working in us, will not bring God glory, nor the fruit we had hope to produce. Often we burn out, or feel disappointed by the end results, depleting us of joy. God does not want that, He wants the best for you.
God understands how weary we become in waiting. But it is in the waiting where He renews your strength, so you can mount up on eagles wings and rise above an earthly perspective, and draw near to Him, Your waiting time allows
the One who created time…permission to control your time.
And don’t you really want that?
