A verse that has always been a strong part of my life, and I know has also been a favorite for many is Isaiah 40:31 which states, “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.”
This verse was a favorite of both of my parents, as well as a verse that became a major part of my life because of the meaning that we see in it. “But they that wait upon the Lord…” is a promise for each of us. If you can be patient and wait on the Lord’s timing things will fall into place.
To me, this is saying, wait on what God has for you; do not try to pursue a life that may not be within the realm of His calling. Do not try to force his hand and jump head first into something without prayer and application of the scripture. God wants us to wait for His timing so that His work in us can be made perfect.
This verse continues with the promise, “…shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles…” We shall mount up as eagles if we just wait. We may be worn down and ready to give up because we just don’t understand what is taking so long sometimes, but today I encourage you to wait. Wait because our strength will be renewed; our strength will be restored…we will be lifted up.
We will run and not be weary and walk and not faint…nothing can overtake us when we are patient with the Lord and wait upon his timing. God has a plan for us today, and when we are patient and wait for that fulfillment we will be blessed; we will be restored; we will feel renewal. Revival happens when we ask the Lord to move and wait on His move rather than pursue it with our own motives.
Fly like an eagle today, wait on the strength the Lord will provide and mount up with wings like an eagle. Fly majestically and beautifully through the plans of the Lord in your life while pursuing Him and His timing. Spread your wings and embrace all that He has for you today and allow Him to complete His work in you in His way and His time.
If we today can be patient, waiting for the Lord while working to live a life worthy of His calling on us, we will soar above all that will come our way. Nothing will be able to pull us to the ground, we will rise above it all and become what He wants us to be, all because we were willing to be patient and trust in His plans. Today, you can fly like an eagle if you put your trust in Him.
