Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)31 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.
Uche went through a season in his life that it looked as if the Lord was not hearing his prayer. He was now getting weary and was becoming weaker spiritually.
Uche was perplexed because he never knew he could be in such a situation. He had enjoyed great fellowship with the Lord and seen His mighty power at work before. One morning he was meditating when a song with the words of today’s Bible verse came to his heart. He knew it was a message from the Lord. He knew it was time for him to seek the Lord and stop trying to figure out things with his mind. He went on a retreat to spend quality time with the Lord in prayer and the word. He put off his smartphone and limited communication with people during this period. ‘It is me and God this weekend’ he said.
Waiting on the Lord is a posture of the heart, and it can also produce actions like the one Uche took. Christians who have this posture of heart renew strength when others faint. When men are cast down, they arise and say there is a lifting up (Job 22:9).
While other birds are hindered by the wind, the eagle takes advantage of the wind to soar higher. Such is the portion of those who wait on the Lord.
Go into today remembering that it is only a humble heart that waits on the Lord.
