Waiting for the Lord Repost

Once again I face a time of waiting. And I struggle as I do so. I looked back over my past posts on the subject of waiting, and the following encouraged me. I continue to desire to honor the Lord by having the right heart attitude as I wait.

Along with this repost of this former blog, I’ve added a song, which has lifted my spirits lately and goes along with how we wait.

God bless you as you wait for and hope in Him.

Waiting For The Lord 

First Posted on February 19, 2012

One day the Lord impressed me with a fact. So much of the anxiety in my life has had to do with waiting—especially waiting for answers to prayer.

Since then I’ve thought a lot about waiting.

I’ve discovered that waiting is about trusting, and it’s imperative that I be willing not only to wait but to do so with a better attitude.

As I’ve talked to and observed other Christians, I discovered having difficulty with waiting is a universal problem. I’ve also found that in waiting my faith is tested.

My desire is to pass God’s waiting tests with flying colors and honor Him as I do. And even if I’m feeling weary, I can choose to wait with a thankful, hope-filled heart.

The good news is that as I wait on the Lord with the proper attitude, He takes away my weariness and draws me close to Himself. Isaiah 40:31 reminds me of this and brings such comfort to my heart—even as I continue to wait for God’s promises to be fulfilled in my life.

“But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.” AMPC

I long to embrace this verse in a deeper way than I ever have before. Today I choose to believe that during the waiting God will supply strength, power, and energy and that on the other side of waiting are wonders beyond description.

Will you join me in waiting expectantly and looking to and for the Lord in every difficulty in life? What joy we can have—even as we wait.

    Yes! I want to wait also with an expectant, joyful attitude, trusting for blessings and problem resolution according to God’s perfect will that lifts burdens in His way and in His time. He is showing me the importance of His timing for best results. Glory to God!
