Isaiah 40:31 King James Version (KJV)

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.


One of the hardest four letter words to hear is wait. Although the word is so small it carries a magnitude of weight. When we are told to wait, either naturally or spiritually it garners a feeling of uncertainty. We often want to follow up the command with a question. Sometimes we want to ask how long do I have to wait. Other times we may wonder what are we waiting for. Still other times our waiting will cause anger or frustration and if we’re not careful even rage.

Here’s an example. The other day I was in line at the airport to get a gate pass for my daughter. I was literally the only person in line. There were three agents at their computers doing various things. My daughter and I waited in line not understanding why we hadn’t been called upon. After several minutes, some other passengers arrived and stood in the priority line. The agents immediately called them up while leaving us standing. You talking about somebody being mad. However I wasn’t angry at the fellow passengers but instead at the agent. When we finally stepped up to the window she immediately explained their right to go ahead of us even though they came after us. I told her it wasn’t the fact that they had a right to go first that angered me, it was the fact that when we were the only ones standing there we still had to wait and were not acknowledged until later.

What I learned from this is, Although it was hard seeing someone be called up/ blessed/ succeed before us, once we went through the process we still made it to her gate on time. She still was able to board the plane as she should and in the midst of that we decided to take a route at the airport that we had never taken and saw some amazing things. We didn’t lose anything in our wait.

In conclusion please know that even though waiting is hard, God knows exactly what He is doing. We don’t want a premature blessing which is similar to eating bitter unripened fruit. When we wait on the Lord we will find that He will allow us to soar to places, and situations that we never imagined and the timing will be perfect. Our prayer today is: Lord help us to understand that in our waiting, you are creating a masterpiece just for us.
