Hurry Up and Wait
Isaiah 40:28-31 Have 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...
Patience and waiting are difficult things for me. You see I'm a MAJOR type A and that means I'm usually doing or working on accomplishing something. So as I read Isaiah 40:28-31, a smile came to my face because I was reminded--once again--that waiting on the Lord is the wise way to operate through life. I came away with this: If the Lord is truly the everlasting God (and he is), then I (we) certainly don't need to be in such a hurry.
So what are some of the benefits of waiting on the Lord? How can we use Isaiah 40:28-31 to help us slow down (chill out) and wait on the Lord? Tami W.
