Waiting, what an interesting and archaic idea. In this age of instant gratification, why do people need to wait. Do you remember those Christmas days where we went through every present in the first hour? And our parents tried to get us interested in a certain toy or object. We received the gifts freely. We did not have to work or toil for them. By the end of the day, our interest in the gifts subsided. In high school, I worked and earned my own money. With that money, I purchased things. The most expensive item was a record player. It cost me three weeks of work. Today if you spent your money on an object that took you three weeks to earn, you would take care of it. Sometimes we have to wait for things that we want or need. It is not always fun or easy, but it is necessary. So, what am I saying? The more time spent in acquiring a thing, will correspond in our devotion to this object. Sometimes, people spend some time on acquiring an object, that they are discouraged about every possessing the thing. Losing faith or hope is not an unusual thing. Depending on the opposition to acquiring the object, will determine if we keep the faith.
This principle of keeping the faith works both in the physical and spiritual world. We have to have faith to please God. We must believe that He is and a rewarded of them that diligently seek Him. God says when you have done everything, prayed and pursued God, stand, therefore I say stand and believe. This means waiting on God to answer us. Isaiah wrote about this very subject over 3000 years ago.
Isaiah 40:31 “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
