This Month's Promise

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son...”

- (John 3:16)

Read: Isaiah 40: 27-31


"... The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. ...” (Isaiah 40: 28)

Our waiting on God depends greatly on our faith of what He is. In Isaiah 40: 27-31 God reveals Himself as the everlasting and almighty One. When we know this truth, then we will understand that He is a God most worthy to be waited upon. Listen to the words, “ The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the end of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, ... He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in theLord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like Eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Halleluiah!

Dear friends, lift up your eyes and see beyond - a cliff rising a thousand feet above the sea upon which is an eagle’s nest with its two young eaglets. See the mother bird come and stir up her nest and with her beak push the timid birds over the precipice. See how they flutter and fall and sink toward the depth. See how she hovers over her young and spreads her wings to catch them and carries them on her wings and brings them to a place of safety. So, the Lord stirs up your nest. He disappoints your hopes. He brings down your confidence. He makes you fear and tremble as all your strength fails and you feel utterly weary and helpless. And all the while, He is spreading His strong wings for you to rest your weakness on and offering His everlasting strength to work in you. And all He asks is to wait on Him, Allow Him to carry you as you ride on the wings of His omnipotence. He will not grow tired or weary and He promises that you too will not faint or be weary.

With such a God, so mighty, so faithful, will you say, my soul, wait upon the Lord and the Lord alone? Amen!

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, you are the everlasting God. You are the almighty one. You never become tired or weary. So let me not tremble or fear when I fall down, but wait on you confidently and rest on your powerful wings to be carried by you to the place of safety. Amen.
