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 (Isaiah 40:31).
One of the most difficult experiences of life is to wait for something we desperately want or desire. This is especially true in spiritual matters. We pray, we ask, we believe, but waiting for God to answer is our greatest challenge. Lest we forget, God is never late! He gives what and when He deems best. Herein is faith--trusting and waiting upon the Lord.
Lord, your promises are new to us every morning. Great is Your faithfulness. Teach us daily not only to pray aright but to confidently wait on your will and perfect timing. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
