John Wesley said: “When I was young I was sure of everything; in a few years, having been mistaken a thousand times, I was not half so sure of most things as I was before; at present, I am hardly sure of anything but what God has revealed.”
The older I get the less sure I am about so many things. Age has a way of making us turn to God as the compass of life. The things I really know and rely upon I have found in scripture, times of prayer, and worship. We live in a world that demands answers and yet our best answer is to say we wait upon the Lord.
The word for the week is WAIT.
• Wait for God to answer your prayers.
• Wait for your children to grow mature.
• Wait for your job to improve.
• Wait to get well.
• Wait to understand the ways of God.
28Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. 29He gives power to the faint, and strengthens the powerless. 30Even youths will faint and be weary, and the young will fall exhausted; 31but those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
