Isaiah 40:31 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.
Doubts arise and with them questions. What do I place my trust in? How long do I have to wait before I do something about it?
What in me looks for answers? Why at all do I need to know these answers.
My mind has ruled my life for far too long it demands answers as if given power a solution would follow. It’s been two months now without a job and there are no plans in place. God has not spoken. This is something my mind is not used to. It demands answers. It demands action.
From within there is a cry “Trust in God” it’s faint but it is there. Something within says God works in his own time. I have learned over the last few months that my mind doesn’t do a great job when it comes to listening to God. The voice of my God is heard deep within somewhere my mind doesn’t control. For this voice I wait, when the time comes my God will guide me.
The scripture Isaiah 40:31 came out of the blue when questions arose. It lead me to search for God’s word.
Psalms 27:14 Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; yes, wait for the LORD!
Psalms 31:24 Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the LORD!
Psalms 33:20 Our soul waits for the LORD; he is our help and shield.
Psalms 40:1 I waited patiently for the LORD; he inclined to me and heard my cry.
Psalms 130:6 my soul waits for the LORD more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.
7 You who fear the Lord, wait for his mercy; and turn not aside, lest you fall.
8 You who fear the Lord, trust in him, and your reward will not fail;
Isaiah 25:9 It will be said on that day, “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the LORD; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”
Isaiah 33:2 O LORD, be gracious to us; we wait for you. Be our arm every morning, our salvation in the time of trouble.
Lamentations 3:25 The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul that seeks him.
Now to the part of me which looks for signs convince me after reading these scriptures that I can do better without my God.
To my flesh this is my answer.
Micah 7:7 But as for me, I will look to the LORD, I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me.
