Waiting On the Lord.

I take refuge in this passage of the word of God. The second half of Isaiah 40 is largely focused on the greatness of our Lord, and concludes with a very encouraging passage.

In a world that encourages people to do everything themselves and it focus is on individual achievement—this is a very encouraging passage. You don’t have to rely solely on your own strength, the Lord will give us what we need to do what he wants us to do. Though, it may seem difficult while waiting, but, Psalm 27:13-14 says, “I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and-—take heart and wait for the Lord.”

It is also worthwhile, however, that in order to receive the strength of the Lord, we must first recognize our weakness and wait on the Lord. Going to the Lord in humility and allow him to fill us with strength to do what we are called to do.

To wait on the Lord; Is to hope and trust in the Lord. Which requires Prayers, Faith, Patience, Humility, Meekness, Long-suffering, keeping the commandments, and enduring to the end.

He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.
Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted;
but they 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. [Isaiah 40:29-31]

Yours In Christ, Shalom.
