Two weeks ago I wrote about being quiet. It has become a bit of a theme for me in the last little while and I feel like I am learning various aspects of what being quiet means.
This verse has been popping up for me repeatedly in the last few days:
Though youths grow weary and tired,
And vigorous young men stumble badly,
Yet those who wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.
Isaiah 40:30-31 NASB (emphasis mine)
I think the Lord may be trying to tell me something! As I read this verse this morning the word “wait” was highlighted to me. At the time I was doing a busy mix of reading my bible plan, getting distracted, checking email, going back to a different devotional and eventually coming back to this verse. When I read “wait” I stopped and thought, “What would waiting on the Lord actually look like?” I stopped and focused on the Lord and almost straight away felt His presence.
