Day 24 Waiting for the Lord

But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.
ISAIAH 40:31
Waiting on God does not mean that we do nothing, while expecting God to do everything for us. To me it means that I wait, expecting God to give me direction if there is something He wants me to do, while also trusting Him to do what only He can do. Often as I have waited on God and put my trust in Him, He has shown me things that need to be adjusted in my behavior or attitude. You see, God doesn’t merely want to change our circumstances, but He also wants to change us.
As we spend quiet time with God, He reveals things to us, and we are refreshed in His presence. Closeness and intimacy with God is one of our greatest privileges as His children. The more time we spend with Him, the more we are transformed into His image. Study God’s Word and receive it as a personal letter from Him to you. It will both comfort and correct you.

Wait on God with a trusting, expectant heart, and look forward to all the good things He has planned for you.

God of heaven, help me to live my life to fulfill Your will every day, as I wait on You let me not be weary by may I renew my strength in Jesus name,

2 Corinthians 4:8
We are hard pressed on all sides, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;

2 Corinthians 4:16
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, yet our inner self is being renewed day by day.

Galatians 6:9
Let us not grow weary in well-doing, for in due time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up
