Manna For Today: Sunday, April 2, 2017
Isaiah 40:31 – But those who wait on 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.
At a moment of impatience, I looked up and on the wall was a sign that read, “Life is what happens to you after you’ve made your plans.” That thought enabled my patience in that instance but God took it to an entirely different level.
Note the reward for waiting: “They will mount up with wings like eagles.” There are few things more majestic than an eagle in flight above everything, seemingly unhindered by anything. Then they will, “run and not be weary… walk and not faint.”
Endurance is a wonderful resource that is often needed. So I have soaring endurance but the real question is not what can I do but why can I do it? In this instance it’s not so much that I’m waiting but who I’m waiting for. “Those who wait on the Lord…” What a wonderful promise given to those who wait on God.
Father, I wait joyfully on you today. Thank you for renewed strength, grace that elevates me above everything and the ability to endure to the end.
Remember, you are loved!
Peace and blessings!
