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. Isaiah 40:31
I told the Lord earlier today when we were talking, 'I would SO like things to be easier ... but I will serve and trust You regardless. I am walking strictly by faith. I am NOT gonna go by what I see or feel.'
The Lord responded back to me, 'The fire may feel like its getting turned hotter and hotter, but you WON'T get burnt ... you won't even smell like smoke. Refuse to submit to the thought that the devil has power over you. I said in My Word, I give YOU power over the enemy. It's in the waiting that your strength will be renewed. Wait on Me, hope in Me, and I WILL come through for you. I take GOOD CARE of My children.'
I have given you AUTHORITY to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome ALL the power of the enemy; NOTHING will harm you. Luke 10:19
I've made a decision that I WILL worship while I’m waiting.
Father, I'm grateful for You for SO MANY reasons, I love you so. Anything here on this earth that I go through is WORTH IT for the hope that I have to see and spend the rest of my days in Heaven with You … YOU are WORTH IT. Strengthen us as we wait on You. Give us grace to go through and equip us with hope to endure to the end. In Jesus’ name, amen.
