They that wait upon the Lord
Part Two

Have you ever asked yourself why God chose to use the bald eagle as the metaphor in Isaiah 40:31?
When all other birds are at His disposal? Because the eagle is like no other. With powerful wings that have a wingspan of up to eight
Feet, not to mention sharp vision, the eagle has the uncanny ability to search out its prey while overcoming adversity.


It is also the only bird that will fly directly into an approaching storm without a care of impending danger, as he takes advantage of the fierceness of the wind, gliding above the storm unscathed. All other birds will seek refuge approaching storms.



We as Christians should take on the personality of the eagle when our time of impending danger arrives.
And yes we will encounter danger. The Bible is very adamant
Concerning difficult times, especially in these last days.

I understand why the Lord chose the eagle for the metaphor in Isaiah. As the Scripture says: They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strenght; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.


Waiting on God will always bring us to the place of renewing our strength, enabling us to mount above adversity run and not become weary and walk and not faint.

In the first issue of "They That Wait upon the Lord" I wrote "Waiting is the atmosphere of quiet reserve, arriving only after you have sought God".

In our daily walk with our heavenly Father there will be times when He will ask us to wait on Him. Not necessarily due to trials we may be encountering but because of something that He may want us to have, but in that moment, however, His time is not our time.

I know in my own personal life I have for over a year been waiting on something He has promised. Is waiting an easy endeavor? No, but remember that His blessings will supersede the time it took for us to wait. As long as the earth remains, we will find ourselves waiting on God. That is just how life in the Lord works. But we can be assured; He will never ask us to wait on something that He cannot bring to pass.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
