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 43: 31
One of the most difficult things to do in life is to stand still, and just wait. In a world where almost everything is done by the clock, no one wants to wait. Nobody has the time and patience to just sit by and wait, we all just want to keep moving. In fact, you may be considered a failure if you are standing still, watching, and waiting on the God’s instructions and leading.
It’s easier to move than to wait. It takes a lot more courage and patience to stand still and wait on the Lord, and submit to His will, because sometimes waiting on God means giving up opportunities for work, breaking up on your relationships with others, and appearing to be foolish in the eyes of the busy others.
When we learn to wait on God’s leading and direction for all we do, we will discover the strength we so desire. The secret of strength, and speed, and success in life, is to be faithful in the leading of the Lord. Being busy without waiting to hear from God is a complete waste of time, energy and resources. Let us learn to wait for God’s leading always!
