On Eagle’s Wings!
“But those who wait upon the LORD will renew their strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
“But those who wait” is an open invitation to all who need a savior. It is an invitation to all who have been forsaken or struggle with life yet not given up. It is an invitation to all who need the Soul’s Renewer Energy (SRE). Furthermore, it is an invitation to all who want God’s divine blessing, light, and love.
The spirit of the Lord is our light and righteousness. It is the light that shines through us when we wait patiently and don’t give up. It is the light that illuminates our hearts and minds when we wait for God to reveal to us the divine promises. Likewise, it is the light that guides us when we are weary and discouraged, even when we mount up with wings as eagles.
Psalm 37:34 says, “Wait for the Lord and keep his way, and he will exalt you to inherit the land; you will look on when the wicked are cut off.”
Of course, the philosophy behind this call is that we must be willing to let go of what no longer serves us; things we cannot control or change, things that drain our energy and makes us feel like we have nothing left to offer. But if we allow God to operate in us with an open-minded and receptive, then life will begin to unfold in ways that we never dreamed possible. It’s a beautiful thing to wait on God because we will rise by waiting on the Lord.
Wonderful things happen to those who wait for God to work in them. They receive strength, renew life, never tired or weary when they run through the desert of life. They are refreshed and renewed by his presence, the burden of life becomes lighter and lighter. Where we mount on eagle’s wings, we become more confident to returns to life’s duties to display our talents and gifts. Will you wait on God? I hope so. Psalm 27:14 says, “Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!”
1. Psalm 62:5 Oh Lord, in you alone, my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is in you.
2. I pray that you may give me the strength to stand upon the high ground of faith in Jesus’ name. Amen.
