Delight In The Wait
As we begin the new year, it’s easy to get caught up in the hype of goals and resolutions. Getting back in shape or working harder may be on your list but before we get too driven, let’s not miss the most important part of the process – to take a moment to step back and wait on God.
Why do you say, O Jacob,and speak, O Israel, “My way is hidden from the Lord,
and my right is disregarded by my God”?Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the faint,and to him who has no might he increases strength.
Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted;
but they who wait for 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..
Isaiah 40:27-31 ESV
