Isaiah 40:31 KJV "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint."
The Christian life has much to do with waiting. We wait to learn our purpose, and calling in Jesus, we wait to perform said calling and purpose, and we wait for the coming of the Lord. In all this waiting we have to be careful not to lose heart, and become discouraged, and most importantly we have to be careful to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, the Author and finisher of our faith. The children of Israel had to wait to enter the promised land, and in the waiting they forgot Who they were waiting for. They were so focused on the promise itself, that as day turned into month, and month turned into year, they began to grow disheartened, and began to murmur amongst themselves when the promise did not readily materialize. Exodus 16:2 NIV "In the desert the whole community grumbled against Moses and Aaron." While we wait let's remember the One we're waiting for: He is love itself, He is good, and He is faithful to His promises. Numbers 23:19 KJV "God is not a man that He should lie; neither the son of man , that He should repent : hath He said, and shall He not do it ? Or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?"
