Isaiah 40:31 Waiting Upon The Lord
I wait for the Lord for many things. Isaiah 40:31 gives me strength in my waiting: "Those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength." That tells it all. The word "wait" means "stretching in order to become strong." I'm reminded of hemp. Hemp gains far greater strength when you stretch it. That's what happens when I wait for the Lord, I stretch, gathering strength ... Look at the 3 Things Isaiah says will happen to those who wait for the Lord: 1. "they will mount up with wings like eagles" 2. "they will run and not get tired" 3. "they will walk and not become weary." I don't know about you, but for me, I want to fly, run, and walk freely like that!
