Heard a preacher say once, “Great things come to those who wait.” Amen. This scripture reminds the believer that he/she is empowered when they WAIT ON THE LORD…Strength and power comes after waiting on God. Isn’t that interesting in this “microwave society” – in which we often look for the quickest way to do just about everything?
“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, does not faint or grow weary; there is no searching of His understanding.
He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound]. [II Cor. 12:9.]
Even youths shall faint and be weary, and [selected] young men shall feebly stumble and fall exhausted;
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. [Heb. 12:1-3.]”
-Isaiah 40: 28-31 (AMP, Bible)
