Isaaih 40:30-31 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.
Have you found yourself in the middle of a trial or struggle, and it doesnt seem as if there is anything that you can do but wait? Don't let this waiting season become a wasted season. What you do during the wait, determines the outcome. All too often, we get complacent during the wait, and quit putting forth any effort to help resolve the conflict or issue. The scripture calls us to wait upon the Lord. In this scripture, the word wait is translated from the greek word "Qavah". Qavah means "to wait actively with anticipation".
We often associate wait with idleness. A period of rest in which no action is happening. But scripture encourages us to be moving during the waiting process. How much prayer have you put in during the wait? How much communication have you had with God? We do not need to learn how to wait, waiting just happens. Waiting is easy. Waiting requires nothing more than worry. Are you seeking as much as you are worrying? What better time than in the midst of a waiting season, to strengthen your faith and trust in God. It is in the wait, that a good thing gets revealed to be a not-so-good thing, when you have been given enough time to see it from another perspective.
