Scripture for the week of March 5, 2017
Have you ever been so weary with the heaviness of discouragement that you feel like you can hardly hold your head up much less walk or run? Or are you facing situations beyond your control that seem impossible to deal with? This scripture informs us that those who wait on the Lord have access to His power and strength beyond where the young will faint and give up! Though we usually find it hard to wait on anything or anybody, this kind of waiting is not idle with twittleling our thumbs. It is an active, persevering, listening and inquiring kind of waiting with expectation and anticipation for a demonstration of God’s miraculous power working in us and through us and for us. As we wait on the Lord, His supernatural power with His mighty strength renews and empowers us to run our race and also lifts our spirit up to soar like eagles! Lord, please help us and teach us how to wait!
