Spiritual Tidbits (11) – How to wait on the Lord?

But they 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.-
Isaiah 40:31

Psa. 27:14 Wait for the Lord; Be strong, and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord.

Why is it so hard to wait on the Lord? Because, we are so prone to take matters into our own hands, to follow our own schemes.

We don’t like to wait and when we think of waiting we respond like, “Wait? That’s what made the bridge collapse!” Of course, that’s weight, not wait. But one of our needs in waiting on the Lord is the need to cast the weight of our burdens on Him.

The Hebrew word qavah is sometimes translated “hope” or “look expectantly,” and yacha, which means “to wait” can mean either “wait” or “hope.”
So put your weight on the Lord and wait on Him with hope and expectations of goodness!
