Isaiah 40:31 – 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. (KJV)
As I was attempting to clear some snow and ice from the sidewalk at the church, I was trying everything I could find to loosen the ice so that I could scrape it off. The temperature was above freezing (although not much) and the sun that was shining was loosening the ice a little at a time. The thought came to me, "Wait on the sun."
I then thought about the times that problems face me and I try everything that I can think of to solve them; and that if I will "wait upon the Son," I can make it.
Prayer: Lord, too often we run ahead of You and try to do things in our own strength when You have clearly told us that if we will wait upon You, we can run and not be weary, walk and not faint, and we can even mount up with wings as eagles. You are such an awesome God and we too often fail to acknowledge Your Sovereignty. Help us to wait on You. Amen.
