Waiting on God

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:28–31)

This promise was directed at God’s people as they faced seemingly impossible situations. The particulars we face today may look different on the surface but the challenge to our faith is no less daunting.

  • Broken relationships
  • Lost jobs
  • Unexpected illnesses
  • A general sense of discouragement
  • Unfulfilled dreams

At times it can feel like the weight of the world pressing down on us. But the One who holds the world in place will not let us slip through his fingers.

Will we trust in ourselves and our own resources? We we leverage influence with others that we think can help? Or will we learn to wait on the Lord and trust in His sovereignty?
