Waiting Upon God - Part 2

Part 2 of Waiting Upon God from Broken Bread by John Write Follette.

"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." (Isaiah 40:31, ESV).

The second meaning of the word Wait is the idea of expectation and hope.This implies a "waiting meeting". Its placing ourselves in a state of dependance understanding how important it is that we receive something when we meet with God. We tend to be self-sufficient and rely too much on other natural resources. We give up too soon and go back to familiar natural methods trying to make things happen.. This requires patience, hanging in there to wait with expectancy. Jesus Himself knew He needed to find time alone with the Father to wait in expectancy to receive strength. David understood this hope of receiving from the Lord when he said "Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait I say, on the Lord" Psalms 27:14.

Tomorrow the third meaning of wait...to watch, observe, take notice.
