WHY NOT WAIT ON THE LORD?

Let me tell you something about the man that WAITS UPON THE LORD;

 

 

 

They that Wait upon the LORD
They that Wait upon the LORD

 

 

 

Waiting upon the LORD is like a transaction between you and God that results to the transfer of traits and attributes from God to you till you begin to see yourself act like God:

 

They that wait upon the LORD
They that wait upon the LORD

 

Now, see it here:

 

 

 

God- “Hast thou not known? Hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding” Isaiah 40: 28

 

 

 

The above verse describes God:
1. He fainteth not
2. He’s not weary

 

 

 

Therefore, there is no searching of His understanding”

 

 

 

Man- “Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall” Isaiah 40: 30.

 

 

 

The above verse describes man
1. He shall faint
2. He shall be weary
(And that applies to the strongest category of man- the youths)

 

 

 

If there is any time that man is fainting and wearying, it’s now that COVID-19 is threatening the whole world!

 

 

 

But see what happens to the man that waits upon the LORD;

 

 

 

They that Wait upon the LORD
They that Wait upon the LORD

 

 

 

The Man that Waits Upon God- “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 Isaiah 40: 31

 

 

 

Did you notice the result of the waiting? There is a transfer of traits and attributes during waiting from God to Man. The man will begin to act like God while others are wearying and fainting around him.

 

 

 

Mounting up on wings as Eagles
Mounting up on wings as Eagles

 

 

 

1. “they shall mount up with wings as eagles”
2. “they shall run, and not be weary”
3. “they shall walk, and not faint”

 

 

 

Mounting up with wings as eagles is actually an attribute of God (Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself Exodus 19:4).

 

 

 

The man that waits upon the LORD will not just be borne on eagle’s wings like the Israelites but would rather “mount up with wings as eagles” like God. He can even bear others on his wings.
Therefore, in a time of a pandemic disease like this, I advise you to WAIT UPON THE LORD in the place of prayer.

They that wait upon the LORD
They that wait upon the LORD

 

 

 

The person who waits on the Lord definitely needs to possess the virtue of patience. This is very important! The person should never be tired of waiting and travailing in prayers. The person would give himself to prayer and studying the Word. This will in turn, give birth to more effectual, fervent, continuous, faith-filled prayers and of course, wonderful mountain-wrenching answers!

 

 

 

Use the opportunity of this lockdown to wait on the Lord! Wait on the Lord, my brethren, again, I say, wait! It will be worth it! Of course, man will start to wonder what happened to you when they see you soaring on eagle’s wings. Then, your understanding will not be searchable! But first, you must wait!

 

 

 

NB: Before you WAIT UPON THE LORD, you must Accept Jesus, Believe in Him, Confess and Deny all your sins and make sure you live a righteous life.

 

Accept Jesus, Believe in Him, Confess and Deny all your sins and make sure you live a righteous life.
Accept Jesus, Believe in Him, Confess and Deny all your sins and make sure you live a righteous life.

 

 

God bless you as you wait on the Everlasting God, the God of the Heavens and the earth.

 

 

 

Shalom!
