Wait on the Lord

Bishop-Elect Dr. Monterey D. Lee, Sr.

Isaiah the prophet gives Israel these words: “They that wait on the Lord” (Isaiah 40:31a) to usher them into the presence of God’s awareness. Whatever you need, know that the Lord is able and available to come through on your behalf. The only person you can find true comfort in at your time of need is God, Elohim. As you wait on Him, don’t be weary in doing good. At the right season (or time), you will receive if you don’t give up. Waiting is a sign of patience, a sign of trusting God, and a true sign of believing in Him. 

Worrying is a sign of being impatient, doubting, and not trusting the process or the necessary steps in order to achieve a particular end. Being impatient will causes anxiety or potential problems that you cannot solve. It’s is impossible to solve a problem with the same thinking you used to create a problem. This is why you need to trust the process, no matter what it may be.

Whatever you do in life, trust a covenant-keeping God by believing in Him. So Isaiah says: I write unto you not just to reprove you or rebuke you, but to ask you an everlasting question…

“Do you not know, have you not heard, that the everlasting God [Yahweh], the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, faint not, neither is weary?   There is no searching of His understanding. He gives power to the faint, and to them that have no might, He increases strength. Even the youth shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: 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 40:28-31.

I’m only asking you an everlasting question. You cannot trust your own sufficiency or strength. Your trust must be in God. God is not looking at your quality or state of being physically strong. He is looking for how spiritually strong you are. What ever you do, wait on God and trust God and He will renew your strength.
