“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” (Isaiah 40:31).Text — Isaiah 40:27-31
The electric car is a new technology. Whereas petrol or diesel cars fuel up within minutes, a typical electric car takes 8 hours to attain full charge. What the electric car loses in time waiting for power it gives back in a cleaner, greener environment; it is noiseless and smokeless. Like the e-vehicle, the Christian needs to wait upon the Lord, drawing strength from Him daily for the journey.
We live in an impatient world; everyone is in a hurry. In our haste, we miss out on the most important things in life – prayer, meditation, and fellowship with God. Worse still, many youths rush headlong into taking decisions of life without waiting to hear from God. Sometimes, they end up with lifelong regrets. The world cannot understand the wonder of supernatural strength for those who wait upon the Lord. They move about with hasty self-managing notions without involving God in their affairs. The secret of wonders is to draw strength from the Almighty God in prayer to enable you go forth. Fail to wait and wither.
Fail to wait and wither
I will wait and win with the Lord.
Prayer for today
Teach me Lord, to exchange my weakness for your strength.
