WAITING ON GOD

“My way is hidden from the LORD, And my just claim is passed over by my God”? 28 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the LORD, The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. 29 He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength. 30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, 31 But those who wait on 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

Waiting on the Lord is not the same thing as waiting for God. God wants us to wait on him and not wait for Him. Many a times we do nothing claiming that we are waiting for God. God does not want us to be idle doing nothing. Thessalonians 3:10 says, “If a man will not work, he shall not eat”. Waiting on God means, “To keep yourself busy doing

good and helping others”. Doing whatever you are inspired to do to contribute to the growth of God’s kingdom while you are waiting to receive instruction or direction from Him. Waiting on God is not a passive activity, but a period of sensitivity to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. It is a period when your focus is totally on God and nothing else. It is a period of reaching out to God, and keeping in the centre of His will. It is the key to renewing our strength whenever we feel drained or dry in our spirit man. When a car runs low on fuel, it is taken to the fuel station for a refill. Waiting on god, takes us to the very presence of God where we are refilled with the power and glory of God, and then our strength is renewed and we are refreshed.
Acts 4:31 “And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.”

The apostle where all in one place waiting on God, and as they prayed they were all filled afresh with the power of God! They received more strength to continue the word of the gospel despite all the persecutions they were facing. Whenever you feel like giving up then it’s time to go back to your source (God), and receive a fresh anointing. In these last days many believers are going to fall by the way side, by if we make it our habit of going to God’s presence on a regular basis, He will keep make us strong and uphold us whenever we feel weary. The words on the lips of everyone are “credit crunch”. So much negativity is going around. Fear has grip the nation as many do not know what the future holds for them. This is the time to look up to God, keeping your focus Jesus, whom is “the author and the finisher of our faith” – Hebrews 12:2. Then the Lord will cause you to mount up with wings like

eagles. He will take you to new heights, while many are sinking you will be soaring!
